MATTHEW TRAPANI devotes his legal career to representing the seriously injured and their families across Pennsylvania. He is passionate about protecting our community from large companies that choose profitability over consumer safety.

Attorney Trapani handles a variety of serious personal injury and mass tort cases including auto and truck accidents, premises liability, liquor liability violations, sexual abuse, wrongful death litigation and mass tort cancer lawsuits. Licensed to practice in all of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties, Trapani has litigated against some of the largest companies in the U.S., and effectively negotiated substantial settlements for his clients.

If you’re in need of a personal injury lawyer, attorney Trapani is happy to meet you at your residence, hospital or his office.

A proud Catholic himself, Trapani also participated in the representation of young victims in the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal. Consequently, ESPN Radio interviewed Trapani regarding the Jerry Sandusky scandal at Penn State. Recently, Trapani was asked to co-author a book titled “A Cup of Coffee with 10 Leading Attorneys in the US.” The book went on to become a #1 bestseller on Amazon.
