David Wilk

For almost 10 years before joining Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk, my practice was 100% in the personal injury field. I worked for insurance companies defending personal injury lawsuits brought against their insureds. I have now brought the unique perspective of having worked on the other side of personal injury cases to this firm.

I believe that the unique insights and information I have gained from working with insurance companies and their claims representatives will prove to be an invaluable resource when it comes to handling your personal injury matter.

Having worked with insurance companies, I know how they think and how they value cases. I have also learned what information causes an insurance company to increase the offer they make on a particular case as well as what information causes them to decrease their evaluation in a particular case.

I believe the unique perspective that I can bring to your matter will enable me to achieve a desirable result in your case in a timely and cost efficient matter.

David Wilk Honored with Prestigious Top Peer Review Lawyer Designation

Lepley, Engelman, Yaw & Wilk LLC is thrilled to announce that once again, our very own David Wilk has been selected as a Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings winner (AV Preeminent, the highest peer rating standard). Less than 10% of all lawyers are awarded this distinction. This accolade is a testament to David's commitment to excellence in the field of law, reflecting his vast knowledge and high ethical standards.

Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings have a history dating back over 130 years, serving as the gold standard in attorney ratings. The ratings assess an attorney's legal ability and ethical standards on a scale with benchmarks for experience. A lawyer needed at least a decade of practice to achieve the "A" rating. Additionally, a "V" rating was given to lawyers recognized by their peers for very high ethical standards. Over the years, the system transitioned to include "AV", "BV", and "CV" ratings. An "AV" rating, the highest attainable, signals that an attorney has reached the pinnacle of professional excellence, recognized for the highest levels of skill and integrity.

The Martindale-Hubbell review process involves a secure online peer-review survey. This ensures a lawyer’s ethical standards and legal ability in their specific practice area can be assessed by their peers. Upon completion of the assessment, the attorney may receive one of the following Martindale-Hubbell Peer Review Ratings: AV Preeminent, the highest peer rating standard. This is given to attorneys ranked at the pinnacle of professional excellence for their legal expertise, communication skills, and ethical standards.

David Wilk's repeated achievement of this prestigious rating underscores his exceptional professionalism and integrity. Lepley is proud to have him on our team and congratulates him on this well-deserved recognition.
