David L. Lutz


I have been a trial lawyer for 36 years. It is my identity. Simply stated, I love helping people in need and representing them in a jury trial, whenever necessary.

David Lutz is an established personal injury attorney in Pennsylvania. He is highly skilled at handling auto insurance litigation and bad faith claims. Mr. Lutz is a passionate and committed advocate for the injured. He has been recognized by The Best Lawyers in America as the 2013 Lawyer of the Year for Harrisburg in Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs and regularly selected to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers® list. In 2019, he was selected to Pennsylvania Top 100 Super Lawyers®. Mr. Lutz’s peers have also recently recognized him through selection to the Best Lawyers for Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs. He has been included in each edition since 2006.

Mr. Lutz’s 2014 verdict on behalf of a wife whose husband was killed by a drunk driver totaled $2.5 million in a dram shop case (Estate of Kerlin v. MS & BS, Inc.). This verdict is listed among the Top PA Verdicts and Settlements for 2014. He also holds membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum®, a further statement of his success in and out of the courtroom.

Mr. Lutz served as the past president of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice and is a frequent lecturer and authored a number of books on automobile insurance laws over the years. A Pennsylvania native, he truly cares about assisting the clients that walk through our doors.
