Daniel Joseph Sammel

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Attorney Sammel was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. As an alumnus of Central Catholic High School and the University of Pittsburgh, he has held fast to his Pittsburgh roots and is absolutely devoted to providing the highest caliber of legal representation to those unfortunate enough to be injured through no fault of their own. Attorney Sammel previously defended insurance companies during the early portion of his career. Although he gained a tremendous amount of experience during that time, he did not find personal fulfillment and felt great sympathy for the injured Plaintiffs he witnessed on a daily basis. Accordingly, he left the insurance companies behind and began representing injured Plaintiffs. He now uses his experience as an insurance defense litigator to better represent his clients' interests in his quest to obtain the one ideal the legal system was designed to create--justice.
