If you live in Western Pennsylvania, you probably know Attorney Edgar Snyder from television commercials or billboards, pointing his finger and saying, “There’s never a fee, unless we get money for you!” But what you most likely don’t know is how he became the most recognizable injury lawyer in the area.
Attorney Snyder’s father, a Russian immigrant, and his mother, a Pittsburgh native, stressed the importance of hard work and a good education. They gave him and his siblings two options for their future employment: medicine or law. Because of his knack for winning arguments and his success on his college debate team, Attorney Snyder felt the legal profession was a good fit for him. After graduating from Pennsylvania State University, he attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.
Following law school, Attorney Snyder opened a storefront office in Duquesne, PA. He set up shop across the street from the steel mill so the workers would see his light on after their shifts. During that time he was also an Allegheny County assistant public defender and rose quickly among the ranks of criminal defense attorneys. He represented several high-profile clients, including Stanley Hoss, in what many consider to be Western Pennsylvania’s trial of the century.
Despite his success, Attorney Snyder’s passion was helping injury victims and people with disabilities. Through his storefront operation, he got to know many of his clients well and wanted to expand his personal injury practice.
In 1982, Attorney Snyder discovered the power of advertising. Soon, his commercials advertising free legal help made him a household name across the region. Today, Edgar Snyder & Associates has five offices across Western Pennsylvania and is recognized as a top-rated personal injury law firm.
Both Attorney Snyder and the firm have received an AV® Preeminent™ rating* through Martindale-Hubbell, the highest rating based on legal ability and general ethics standards. Attorney Snyder also received the Trib Total Media Reader's Choice Award for the Best Attorney in the City.
