About Our Personal Injury Law Firm

Munley Law founder Robert W. MunleyTo understand our dedication and commitment to injury victims, we need to go back to learn about the roots of the Munley family. The Munley family has always been dedicated to standing up for the powerless. Three generations of Munleys have served in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, including Marion L. Munley, the first woman to serve as an officer in the state House of Representatives. Her dedication to service inspired her sons to dedicate their careers to pursuing justice.

After serving in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, our founder, Robert W. Munley, attended the University of Scranton and the Temple University School of Law. Upon graduating in 1959, Robert began practicing law as an Assistant District Attorney for Lackawanna County before transitioning into private practice and founding the Law Offices of Robert W. Munley.

Soon after opening the practice, Robert was joined by his brother, James, as his wife, Bernadine, became the firm’s office manager and administrator. The brothers practiced law together until 1977, when James left the firm to become a Common Pleas Court Judge for Lackawanna County. Jame Munley would later become a U.S. District Judge for the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

“The Injured, the Forgotten, and the Damned”

Bernadine and Robert MunleyRobert’s wife, Bernadine Munley, joined the firm in 1972 as the office manager and administrator. She recognized the importance of achieving justice for injury victims who may not have easy access to the court system and was instrumental in transitioning the firm from a general practice to personal injury. Robert began representing those injured in tragic accidents, giving them a voice they otherwise may not have had.

The firm was committed to helping victims of catastrophic accidents, especially trucking accidents, and soon became nationally recognized for its groundbreaking settlements and Robert’s skill in the courtroom.

“The Family of Lawyers”

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer in Scranton, PA?Robert’s passion for the law left an impression on his six children, who dedicated their careers to the law. Marion Munley and her husband Matt joined in 1988, followed by J. Christopher Munley, Daniel W. Munley, Robert W. Munley III, and Caroline Munley. The firm quickly became an industry leader in personal injury, receiving accolades from our peers and national legal organizations for our work in personal injury and truck accident law.
