About Filer & Schwab

Filer & Schwab has been committed to creating communities since 1976. Our legal team has been living and working in eastern Pennsylvania for decades. We understand the people here and the problems our community encounters on a day-to-day basis.

Local Representation Providing The Highest Level Of Representation

Our attorneys have nearly 50 years of experience providing excellent legal representation to the people of eastern Pennsylvania.

Founding attorney William G. Schwab has been selected to the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers 13 times since 2007, making him the only locally based lawyer with the distinction. Attorney Schwab is well-established in the state and nationally for his experience and proficiency in bankruptcy law. Recently, attorney Schwab served as the counsel of record for a US Supreme Court case with national implications on exemptions.

Lead attorney Eric Filer was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar in 2013 and quickly made a name for himself as one of the state’s leading attorneys because of his personalized and thorough approach to bankruptcy, criminal defense and estate planning.
