Established in 1913 and headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Meyer Darragh is one of the oldest and most respected law firms in the legal communities of Western PA and the tri-state area.
We provide a second office location in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, approximately one hour east of Pittsburgh, in Westmoreland County, with a full-service office of experienced attorneys and staff that have been part of our firm for over 30 years.
Our firm offers experienced, first-tier trial attorneys who provide trusted counsel to our clients ranging in size from Fortune 50 and other large companies, to mid-size and small businesses, to individuals. Our client lists are available upon request, and we welcome and encourage those seeking new counsel to speak with the best source of information on our firm and our level of service - our clients.
Our lawyers are among the most experienced and successful trial lawyers in Western Pennsylvania. Collectively, our attorneys have tried thousands of cases in state and federal courts throughout the tri-state area, and our trial-record is second to none.
Beyond preparing and trying cases that need to be tried, our lawyers fully appreciate the importance of early evaluation of cases, as not all cases should be tried. We emphasize early evaluations, including specific discovery of the issues involved when there is no need for blanket discovery on every issue, to allow our clients to make early, cost-efficient, and informed decisions on how best to resolve their claims and cases.
Outside of the litigation arena, our lawyers spend countless hours providing education to our clients and the legal community by teaching, writing, and presenting seminars on legal issues. Please review our lawyer bios for more detail on the extent of this important part of our business.
We also remain true to and are proud of our long-standing relationships with and contributions to the local bar associations and communities in which we live and work, including our relationships and involvement with the members of the Allegheny County Bar Association, the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and the West Virginia Bar Association.
Most large law firms come with large rates, and we recognize the high overhead reasons behind those large rates. Meyer Darragh is proud to offer to our clients the advantages and resources of a large firm, but without the high overhead costs. This enables us to provide our highest quality legal services at a fraction of the cost of the larger firms. We invite all who consider our firm to compare our rates, as well as our history of successfully representing our clients, when considering what is in your best interest when retaining legal counsel for your needs.
Meyer Darragh is the sole and exclusive Western Pennsylvania member and partner of ALFA International, the oldest and one of the largest legal networks of its kind. ALFA International is comprised of 125 member law firms, having approximately 300 law offices throughout both the United States and internationally to help service the needs and interests of our clients. Whether it be for referrals to peer reviewed and exceptional counsel, the need for extra-jurisdictional process or other assistance, knowledge and information on outside experts or counsel, or the need for office space or videoconferencing capabilities anywhere around the world, our partnership with ALFA International allows us to offer these and other additional services at no added cost to our clients.
Our lawyers also are actively involved, both nationally and locally, with the fast-growing Claims Litigation Management (CLM), a national organization devoted to educating the claims and legal communities on current and approaching claim and litigation issues that are important to our clients.
We also have and will always remain active in numerous industry groups, speaking and serving on the boards of the defense industry groups which are involved with issues relevant to our clients' needs and interests, including the Pennsylvania Defense Institute (PDI) and the Defense Research Institute (DRI). We invite a review of our lawyer bios to learn more about our involvement with these and other industry groups.
