T. Matthew Leckman, Esq.
Matt Leckman, the founder and principal member of Leckman Law LLC, is a trial lawyer and litigator. Matt is admitted to practice in Pennsylvania and various federal courts across the country. He started his career as a law clerk to the Honorable Ronald D. Castille, a former Justice of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. After his clerkship, Matt spent 13 years at the firm Pogust Braslow & Millrood.
In 2011, Matt shared with his colleagues in a landmark victory, serving as co-lead counsel in the trial of Mulderig, et al. v. Wyeth, involving three women who developed breast cancer from hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The trial ended in a verdict for the women totaling $72.6 million, which was the largest personal injury verdict in Philadelphia in 2011 and one of the largest in the history of the court. Matt also was instrumental in the 2009 HRT trial of Kendall v. Wyeth, which brought a plaintiff's verdict of $34.3 million. After the trial court drastically reduced the award, Matt was responsible for the briefing that won the appeal and overturned the trial court, reinstating the full award.
