In Search of Justice
Attorney Stuart A. Carpey fights to help the injured regain control over their lives
by Bill Donahue


For as long as he can remember, Stuart A. Carpey has been driven to make a difference in the lives of people who have been victimized, are without a voice or are otherwise unable to defend their rights. That’s specifically why he chose to become an attorney whose practice contends with complex cases such as personal injury and medical malpractice.


“Without someone like me to help them through what they’re going through, injury victims could otherwise get overwhelmed and overcome by the insurance companies, leaving them with nothing but more problems,” says Carpey. “People like me are the only defense the public has against insurance companies, which tend to care more about profits than people.” 


Carpey, whose firm Kreithen, Baron & Carpey P.C. has offices in Conshohocken and Philadelphia, earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, and his Juris Doctor from Villanova University School of Law. In his nearly 25 years of practice, he has successfully represented injured individuals in a broad array of cases, including car accidents, medical malpractice, slip-and-falls, workplace injuries and civil rights violations, etc.


Many people who are injured as a result of the carelessness or negligence of others make missteps that could have been avoided with the help of a seasoned attorney such as Carpey. Among the most common mistakes, he believes, are not getting necessary medical attention immediately, and talking to an insurance company representative.


“A lot of people who are injured in accidents are shocked to discover that insurance companies aren’t looking out for them,” he says. “They assume that insurance-company representatives are there to help them, so they offer statements, answer questions about issues that might not be related to the accident and even sign medical releases that authorize insurance companies to review their medical records. This kind of information is being gathered for one reason: to use it against the person who was injured.”


This is exactly the kind of injustice that Carpey fights to right, by using the legal system to help his injured clients recover physically, mentally and financially. He knows firsthand how deeply an accident can impair one’s life and livelihood because he has been an accident victim himself. Although he has since recovered, two separate car accidents left him with significant injuries, the aftereffects of which necessitated knee surgery and months of physical rehabilitation.


In his quest to better serve and inform the public about the intricacies of automotive insurance in Pennsylvania and other topics germane to personal injury cases, Carpey has also become an educator of sorts. In the multiple books he has authored, as well as through blogs and other resources available on his website, he shares knowledge and experience gleaned from dealing with insurance companies, corporate defendants and defense attorneys—all in the name of creating a more educated public.


A Track Record of Results

Since commencing the practice of law in 1987, Carpey has garnered a certain amount of expertise and experience. In addition to his regular practice, Carpey volunteers his time and expertise for people in unique need of his services. In 2002, for example, the U.S. government appointed him as volunteer trial counsel for individuals who were injured in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center. In two separate cases he helped individuals injured in the disaster recover money from the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.


Among his many honors and distinctions, Carpey also been appointed as a Philadelphia mediator (Judge Pro Tem) in complex civil litigation matters, as well as a court-appointed Arbitrator in Philadelphia County, Montgomery County and the federal courts. In addition to his many bar admissions, he is also a member of professional organizations such as the Pennsylvania Bar Association, Philadelphia Bar Association, Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, Philadelphia Association for Justice and American Association for Justice.


Another distinction that sets him apart from most is his membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is restricted to attorneys who have secured million-dollar settlements or verdicts on behalf of their clients.


“I have a track record of getting excellent results for my clients,” Carpey says. “In fact, most of my new clients come from satisfied clients who have referred people to me because they have been pleased with me and my staff and the results we’ve achieved through settlements or verdicts.”


He continues, “people need someone in their corner who is familiar with what they are going through and who is prepared to take cases to trial. I’m ready and able to fight for them and get the justice they seek.”
