Scott J. Werner, Jr.


Service to my clients and the community is a passion of mine. I am a born and raised Chester County resident and son of small business owners who always sought to give back to their communities.

For eight years I served the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a prosecutor in three counties, including the final three years as an Assistant District Attorney in Chester County. During my time as a prosecutor, I tried jury and bench trials in Chester, Lycoming, and Tioga counties. As a prosecutor I was responsible for hundreds of felony and misdemeanor criminal cases per year ranging from Homicide to DUI.

Now, as a Litigation Associate, I can bring to bear my courtroom and litigation experience for my clients, not the Government.  Whether I am representing a business in a civil matter, a family in Orphans’ Court, or a fellow citizen in Criminal Court, I fight for my clients and their interests with professionalism and dogged determination.

My practice is focused on Civil Litigation (Real Estate, Commercial, Landlord Tenant) Criminal Defense, Guardianships, Social Security Disability, and assisting the firm’s Business Law Group.
