Michael S. Levin, Esq.
Michael S. Levin began his legal career with Flager & Associates in 1997, after graduation with honors from Widener University School of Law in 1996. In law school, he distinguished himself as a member of the Law Review, The Delaware Journal of Corporate Law. He also received certificates of recognition for his expertise in the field of Equal Protection Law and participated in a criminal defense clinic, working in cooperation with the Office of the Public Defender in Delaware County and Chester County to represent indigent defendants in criminal matters. While still an intern during law school, he wrote an appellate brief in Warner v. Continental, obtaining a decision that expanded the rights of workers injured in auto accidents on the job, allowing them, for the first time, to obtain uninsured and underinsured motorist benefits from their employers’ insurance policies.
After beginning with Flager & Associates in 1997, Michael focused his efforts on representing injured victims of negligence and litigating hundreds upon hundreds of cases and achieving outstanding results for the firm’s clients for 10 years, before joining a small litigation boutique firm in Philadelphia, where he handled not only personal injury matters, but also consumer class actions, toxic tort and mass tort cases involving dangerous and defective drugs, defective products and victims of toxic substance releases. His experience includes participation in the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee in the Mattel Lead Painted Toy litigation. He also successfully sued a global motorcycle manufacturer in a class action which resulted in the immediate nationwide recall of dangerously defective motorcycles whose frames were prone to cracking during normal operation, resulting in often catastrophic injuries to riders. He has also handled cases involving dangerous pharmaceuticals such as Vioxx and Reglan.
After spending an additional five years at another small plaintiff’s personal injury firm in Philadelphia, where he continued his winning record of representing injured victims, he re-joined Flager & Associates after an 11-year absence in 2018. He is the senior associate handling litigation matters, representing the seriously injured in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. He also assists in the firm’s municipal work, including serving as the assistant Solicitor for Bristol Township, handling zoning and land development matters for Falls Township, handling legal matters for the Township of Falls Authority, a local water and sewer utility, as well as a variety of other legal matters including representing Morrisville Borough, the Bucks County Prothonotary and the Lower Makefield Township Zoning Hearing Board.

Edward J. Zanine, Esq.
On June 6, 2018, our firm lost a dedicated employee and dear friend, Edward “Ed” Zanine, our firm’s Senior Associate. Our firm – our family – mourns his passing.
Ed was much beloved among our staff and even more so by the many clients he had tirelessly served through his more than 10 years at Flager & Associates. His tragic passing at age 49 came as a shock to us all.
Ed was an outstanding, dedicated, ethical and honest lawyer, who was completely devoted to providing our clients the very finest in legal representation. Smart, tough and tenacious, he was one of the engines of our litigation department since he joined the firm in 2007. His keen intellect and shrewd approach to litigation was integral to his securing millions of dollars in settlements and verdicts for injured clients over the years. Most importantly, however, he was a warm, wonderful human being, a devoted husband for 23 years and a fantastic, loving father to three incredible children. One could not ask for a better friend, and all who knew him will miss his presence in their lives.
On behalf of the entire Flager & Associates family, we honor the life and accomplishments of Ed Zanine. His time at our firm, and among those who knew, loved and worked with him, will always be cherished and remembered.
