Berger Montague PC is pleased to announce that attorney Dena Young has joined the Firm’s Philadelphia office as Senior Counsel. Ms. Young is a talented, passionate, and proven litigator with a demonstrated record of achievement.
Ms. Young previously practiced law as a litigation associate at Ross Feller Casey LLP, where she worked on coordinated mass tort proceedings. She now joins Berger Montague’s Consumer Protection and Mass Tort practice groups, where she will concentrate on complex consumer litigation, mass tort, and personal injury cases. Ms. Young graduated with honors from the Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law and is also an honors graduate of George Washington University.
