Metzger Wickersham traces its origin back to 1888 when Frank B. Wickersham, a Steelton native, began the general practice of law. That makes the firm 135 years old this year.
"135 years of continuous legal service to residents of Pennsylvania is certainly a milestone for our firm,” said Clark DeVere, attorney and shareholder at Metzger Wickersham. “It is very special for so many generations to have placed their trust in us."
Over the years Metzger Wickersham has counseled clients in a broad spectrum of legal matters and has represented many thousands of individuals, families, estates, partnerships, corporations, and governmental entities. Presently, the firm concentrates its practice in plaintiff’s personal injury law, representing people who are injured because of car, truck, and motorcycle accidents, as well as workers' compensation and social security disability claimants.
“In my 43 years here, I have seen the firm undergo many transformations, but our core values have remained the same,” said attorney Ted Knauss, who is also a shareholder at the firm. “Metzger Wickersham prides itself on delivering exceptional client service, and that’s the driving force behind our longevity.”
As one of the area’s most established and well-respected law firms, Metzger Wickersham strives to maintain the legacy of its early founders, Frank B. Wickersham and Maurice R. Metzger.
Frank B. Wickersham was “always astute to protect the interests of his clients,” as remembered by the Dauphin County Bar Association. Mr. Wickersham’s partner, Maurice R. Metzger, also had a reputation for his hard work, patience, fairness and humanity, which followed him throughout the years of his practice at the firm.
Metzger Wickersham has stood the test of time by maintaining its steadfast dedication to the practice of the law and developing solid relationships with past and present clients. The firm looks forward to many more years of serving Pennsylvania communities with trusted legal representation!
