Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&ABlawg SearchSocial MediaResponsive Law

This leading real estate law and civil litigation firm was founded in 2004 by an adjunct professor, lecturer and published contributor to "The Legal Intelligencer." Mr. Dimmerman understands that you have choices and has the utmost respect for his contemporaries in the legal community. His approach to the practice of law is to treat all clients like family, and ensure that they are equipped to make the most cost-effective decisions possible. He strives to empower them with knowledge and also to discourage litigation when a cost-benefit analysis indicates a more productive outcome. He understands that law, especially litigation, can be emotionally charged. However, he is committed to not letting the emotion impact his judgment or the necessary dissemination of legal advice.

Mr. Dimmerman holds the highest rating of his peers (AV) with Martindale-Hubbell and has been named as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer "Rising Star" on several occasions. He has a degree in English Literature from Vassar College, graduated "cum laude" from the University of Miami School Law, where he was a member of the Business Law Review, received an award for excellence in Research and Writing, and interned for a Federal Judge during his first summer. He also attended the Wharton School (evening, undergraduate) and Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan.
