Paul J. Wylam

Before being admitted to the bar in 1998, Mr. Wylam worked for almost a decade as a Claims Specialist for State Farm Insurance. He brings this experience to bear on his legal practice today. His practice is primarily focused on medical malpractice defense, representing physicians, physician groups and hospitals within Northeast and Central Pennsylvania. Since 2008, Attorney Wylam has served as the solicitor for the Lackawanna County Board of Tax Assessment Appeals.  He has also served as defense counsel for several national retail stores. Attorney Wylam was selected as a Pennsylvania Rising Star as featured in the December 2005, 2006 and 2007 issues of Philadelphia Magazine, Pennsylvania Super Lawyers – Rising Star Edition.  Attorney Wylam has successfully defended several medical malpractice matters to verdict at jury trial and at arbitration.  Additionally, he has defended Board of Assessment Appeals at several bench trials.
