Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki graduated cum laude (5th in a class of 100) from Duquesne University in 1991. While in law school, he worked as a summer associate for Kirkpatrick, Lockhart and Gates, one of the largest law firms in the country. Recognizing then, that representing corporations was not for him, he chose to work as a Public Defender for 4 years, upon graduating from law school. As a Public Defender, Attorney Mielnicki took many cases to trial and developed into an outstanding trial lawyer.
In early 1996, Attorney Mielnicki began working for noted Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorney Robert A. Seewald, who had been practicing personal injury law since 1969. Just 2 years later, Attorney Mielnicki secured a verdict, in an automobile case that went to trial, well in excess of $300,000. By 2003, Attorney Mielnicki had settled a case for $1 million. Attorney Mielnicki worked with Attorney Seewald until 2004, when the two then formed a partnership. In 2012, Attorney Mielnicki formed his own firm. He is a Top 100 Trial Lawyer and rated a perfect 10 by Avvo.
Pittsburgh Personal Injury Attorney Robert E. Mielnicki has obtained far more than $7 million for his clients, a figure that is conservatively low, as it’s nearly impossible to remember all the cases settled by Attorney Mielnicki going back to 1996. For the past 25 years, Attorney Mielnicki has taken a 25% contingency fee from every one of his personal injury clients and has often taken less.
