Biography

When Edwin Dashevsky began representing accident victims in 1967, he could not foresee the long and successful path he was about to embark upon. During his 48+ years of practice, Ed has been joined along the way by his sons, Jeffrey and Andrew, who proudly follow in thier father's role as Trial Lawyers, wearing the label as a badge of honor.

As Founder, President and Chairman of Dashevsky, Horwitz, Kuhn,  Novello & Shorr P.C., the senior Dashevsky has always been and remains a driving force in establishing the firm’s reputation as one of the best personal injury litigation firms in the region. Ed concentrates his practice in representing people who sustain catastrophic injuries as a result of medical/dental malpractice, motor vehicle/motorcycle accidents, fall accidents, defective products, premises accidents, liquor liability ("dram shop" claims) as well as wrongful death and survival claims and workers' compensation matters, throughout the courts in Pennsylvania as well as other state and federal courts.

As with most aspects of modern life, the practice of law has become a very specialized and complex endeavor. This is especially true for the handling and processing of personal injury cases, where the attorney must possess a breadth of knowledge, not only of the law, but an understanding of medicine, psychology, science, and technology. Mr. Dashevsky and the trial lawyers of his firm are dedicated to providing the most knowledgeable, sophisticated, and effective legal representation to their clients.

With the understanding that litigation can be a stressful and complicated process, Mr. Dashevsky's staff sees to it that all clients are kept informed and understand what the firm is trying to accomplish on their behalf. “Clients aren’t just file numbers,” says Edwin Dashevsky. “They are real people with special needs resulting from their injuries, and we do our best to make sure they are justly compensated, and rightfully, so.”

Mr. Dashevsky graduated from Temple University in 1964, and received his Juris Doctor Degree from Duquesne University in 1967. He attended the Academy of Trial Advocacy and was certified as a Fellow of the Academy in 1979. Mr. Dashevsky is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and the Federal Courts, including the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, U.S. Court of Appeals, Third Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals, Fourth Circuit and the United States Supreme Court. Mr. Dashevsky has an AV rating from Martindale-Hubbell, signifying the highest rating in both professional competence and integrity.

Mr. Dashevsky has received the distinct honor of being named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer based upon a survey of peers and industry leaders within the legal community. Only the top 5% of Pennsylvania lawyers receive this distinction, which Mr. Dashevsky has been consistently awarded year-after-year. He has represented thousands of clients and has obtained numerous multi-million dollar recoveries which have led to his induction as a Lifetime Member of the National Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

Distinguished as a premier trial lawyer who demonstrates superior qulaifications of leadership, reputation, influence, stature and a public profile, Mr. Dashevsky was selected as a member of The National Trial Lawyers: "Top 100". Top 100 members possess the knowledge, skill, experience and success held by only the finest and best lawyers in America. By combining resources, power, and influence, the invitation-only organization is devoted to preserving and protecting justice for all.

As a result of his career of exhibiting virtue in the practice of law, elevating the standards of the Bar and setting a benchmark for other lawyers to emulate, Mr. Dashevsky was selected to the 2015 list as a member of the "Nation's Top One Percent" by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel. This elite class of advocates consists of the finest leaders of the legal profession from across the nation.

Mr. Dashevsky is an active member of the American Bar Association, Philadelphia Bar Association, Pennsylvania Association for Justice, Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice. He has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, for which he has participated on various committees. Mr. Dashevsky has been on numerous committees for both the state and local bar associations. The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has appointed him as Chairman of the Hearing Committee for the Lawyers’ Disciplinary Board.
