Richard E. (Rick) Stabinski
Rick Stabinski focuses his practice on general liability work, including construction matters and the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA).
He appears in Pennsylvania and federal courts and has argued numerous appeals. His successes include obtaining a $20 million verdict on behalf of Exxon Mobil in a property damage lawsuit.
In 2015-2016, Rick has secured the transfer of eight cases from Philadelphia (for corporate defendants) based on improper venue.

The transfers were by court order or agreement by the plaintiff's counsel after the filing of preliminary objections.

In 2013 and 2014 he was selected as a Top Rated Lawyer in Construction Law, and has achieved an “AV Preeminent" Peer Review rating from Martindale-Hubbell.
Rick is active in state and local politics, serving as campaign manager and senior advisor to numerous elected officials and sitting judges.
