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.
Outside the office, Michael is an avid, lifelong Eagles fan, a self-described gardening addict, and enjoys home brewing craft beer. He also enjoys traveling and being a devoted dad/servant to his three rescued cats.
