About Our Firm

For over 30 years David Halpern has been actively representing the rights of victims of asbestos exposure. Halpern has investigated, litigated, and settled hundreds of mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer cases.

David Halpern has a commitment to leaving no stone unturned. He is involved in every case meeting and preparing clients, sending out a discovery to defendants, and taking corporate depositions. His discovery often involves site inspections and document inspections at the worksites clients have worked at. This type of commitment and dedication ensures the companies at fault are held responsible for their actions and has resulted in many millions of dollars recovered for Philadelphia and New Jersey asbestos cancer victims.

Prior to starting his own firm David Halpern worked for a nationally recognized asbestos plaintiffs firm in Philadelphia. His legal achievements include being part of a team that obtained a verdict on behalf of two mesothelioma victims for over $18 million.

David Halpern understands the pain associated with asbestos disease and every year he honors the memory of his late father with an annual Parkinson Golf Tournament that he started in 2000. Dave has been married for 15 years and the proud father of two wonderful children ages 13 and 11.

David B. Halpern is a graduate of Temple University in 1984 and Delaware Law School in 1987. Following graduation in 1987, he clerked for one year for the Honorable Michael R. Stiles in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. David Halpern is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
