Attorney Snyder, the son of a Russian immigrant father and a Pittsburgh native mother, grew up knowing the importance of hard work and a good education. He was given two options for future employment, being asked, "Are you going to be a doctor or a lawyer?" 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 enrolled in the University of Pittsburgh School of Law.

After graduating from law school, Attorney Snyder opened his own storefront office in Duquesne, PA, setting up shop across the street from the steel mill so the workers would see his light on after their shifts. At the time he was also serving as 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 these clients well, and Attorney Snyder was determined to expand his personal injury practice. Martindale-Hubbell AV® Preeminent Rating; Pittsburgh Tribune Review's Readers' Choice Award for Best Attorney in the City; 2004 - 2010 , 2014 & 2015 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers®; Fellow, Penn State University Alumni; 225th Anniversary Medallion recipient, University of Pittsburgh, 2013 Diamond Award from the Pittsburgh Business Times.

In 1982, Attorney Snyder discovered the power of advertising. Soon, Attorney Snyder's television ads about a free legal consultation were making him a household name across the region. As Attorney Snyder's reputation as a caring but tough injury attorney grew, so did the law firm. Today, Edgar Snyder & Associates has five offices across Western Pennsylvania and is recognized as a top-rated personal injury law firm.
