Pittsburgh Attorney, Ernest J. PribanicA PITTSBURGH PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY

Ernest J. Pribanic is the youngest Pittsburgh personal injury attorney of the Pribanic’s.  A summa cum laude graduate of Duquesne University School of Law, Ernest received a full academic scholarship for academic excellence after finishing his first and second years at the Law School in the top three of his class and received awards for both his skill in trial advocacy and legal writing.

Ernest works on all aspects of personal injury litigation, but he focuses his practice on motor vehicle negligence, defective products, and medical negligence.  During his time at the firm, Ernest has recovered millions of dollars for his clients in cases involving motor vehicle crashes, tractor trailer crashes, premises liability, defective products, and medical malpractice.

Before pursuing a career in the law, Ernest was a teacher and taught English, literature, and creative writing to middle and high school students. Ernest’s use of the skills honed as a teacher has helped him earn a reputation for effective advocacy in the courtroom. Most recently, Ernest’s skill as a trial lawyer and professionalism were recognized by the Academy of Trial Lawyers of Allegheny County. He was inducted into this prestigious organization in 2021.

On those rare occasions when he is not working on representing his clients, Ernest can be found enjoying the outdoors with his wife and two daughters, and dog.

CLIENT REVIEW


Most people are never prepared for a life altering event. Nor do we know what to expect when it does happen. First there’s the fear of uncertainty and change. The panic of how to make this all go away.
My sister had such a turn of events, medical mistakes and malpractice changed her life forever. Sold on the “simple “ idea of gastric bypass, the “quick fix” that caused a cascade of neurological and debilitating ailments. My sister became unable to walk, lost the use of her hands, was unable to feed herself and had severe memory and cognitive issues.
That’s when she needed help, not just medically, but someone to fight for her. That’s when I met Ernest Pribanic. From that first day he sat with us at the rehab facility, I knew we had the right team to fight for her. Not only being compassionate and patient, but listening to a woman who just wanted her life back, he  knew what needed to be done; listening through the tears and the days that she would just break down. It wasn’t a pleasant journey to say the least but he never hesitated to answer our calls and be there when the time came to face those that had failed her.
Ernest and Victor Pribanic, fought for her and enabled her to move forward and build a “new life.” For that we will be ever so thankful. Lawyers fight for justice, they did much more than that, they gave us hope.
