Allan Scholler focuses his practice on product liability, commercial premises liability, construction defect litigation, insurance coverage, declaratory judgment actions, pre-litigation investigation, and commercial contract review.

Mr. Scholler is well-experienced in product liability and has valuable knowledge about large motorized machinery, like fork lifts, as well as large scale manufacturing equipment, like industrial product synthesizing machines. He has represented his clients in matters from inception to conclusion via trials, arbitrations, mediations and other alternative dispute resolution programs. Mr. Scholler strives to help his clients by defending their cases in a cost-effective manner, in order to obtain their desired results.

Mr. Scholler has handled several representative matters for his clients. Recently, he has obtained an entry of non-suit for a product seller, as a result of Motions in Limine ruled upon by the trial judge after jury selection. The trial judge ultimately ruled that the product was not defective as a matter of law, to the extent that the product was alleged to be defective, and any such alleged defect was an open and obvious condition.

Mr. Scholler has successfully mediated a claim brought on by an injured construction worker who could not return to work as a result of his severe injuries. Initial representation included a general contractor, who required acceptance of tender by the owner, pursuant to contract. The defense and indemnification of the general contractor and owner was persuaded against the subcontractor, who had further subcontracted with the Plaintiff’s employer, to perform the work that resulted in the Plaintiff’s injury. The claim resolved through mediation without contribution from the general contractor or owner. Defense costs for the work performed, post-tender, were also successfully recovered.

In addition, Mr. Scholler has successfully tendered by the manufacturer of an allegedly defective component of the product, to the product assembler. As a result of his work on the claim on behalf of the component part manufacturer, the product assembler who accepted the tender then requested Mr. Scholler’s representation and agreed to waive any possible conflict issues.

While in college, Mr. Scholler served as a member of the Student Action Committee and was a four-year recipient of the Cecilia Hand Nelson scholarship award for academic achievement. After completing law school, Mr. Scholler served as a law clerk for the Honorable David W. Heckler of the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas.
