About Mark Schultz


For over 45 years, Mark C. Schultz has been a leader in the fields of product liability and construction law. He is a nationally-recognized name in these areas, and is widely considered among the country’s most esteemed attorneys in this increasingly specialized field of work.

His practice continues to assist both insurers and the insured, and in helping these parties he has tried in excess of 50 cases to verdict and successfully resolved over 1,000 cases on behalf of his clients.

Mr. Schultz has had a long and varied legal career, from prosecuting criminals as an Assistant District Attorney to handling divorce and commercial litigation early in his private practice. Currently, in addition to his continuing client work, Mr. Schultz has lent his expertise as a recognized bar leader, published legal author, and adjunct professor at Drexel University’s Earle Mack School of Law and participates in his alma mater, Villanova University School of Law’s Inn of Court mentoring program.

He began his career in subrogation law in the late 1970s, taking cases in private practice at a time when the field was still largely unexplored and underdeveloped. Navigating this unchartered territory came naturally to Mr. Schultz, whose strategy-focused approach—coupled with a scholar’s knowledge of the law—allowed him to quickly become a leader in this and other areas of practice.

Mr. Schultz was soon recruited by a prominent Philadelphia law firm to head and grow their workers’ compensation subrogation department. Over the course of the next two decades, he would go on to build one of the first and most successful subrogation departments in the country.

It was following this role when Mr. Schultz decided to leave and open his own practice, Schultz Law, where he continues to specialize in helping victims of accidents see those responsible for injury held accountable.

In 2018, Mr. Schultz began a trial consulting practice, organizing and conducting focus groups for lawyers, and providing strategic input in both discovery and trial preparation. Visit Keystone Jury Consulting’s website for more information on the services Mr. Schultz offers.

When he’s not performing in the courtroom, Mr. Schultz loves to be on stage performing with a five-string banjo. Inspired by the folk revival of the 60s, Mr. Schultz began playing the guitar and banjo as a teenager, and has played in numerous bands across the years, branching out into many other genres. His current mix of music includes klezmer, swing, folk, country, as well as more traditional bluegrass. Visit Mr. Schultz’s music website for more information and details on upcoming shows.
