Michael van der Veen was known primarily for handling plaintiff personal injury and criminal defense matters before rising to national prominence when he represented former President Donald Trump in his second impeachment trial earlier this month. And after a brief vacation in Maine to recharge his batteries, the Center City lawyer is ready to pick up where he left off with little fanfare, the Philadelphia Business Journal reports.
“We were busy when we took the case and we’re still busy now,” van der Veen said in a Thursday interview. “We have received an increase in new business litigation but not much else has changed.”
While helping secure Trump’s acquittal is clearly a big feather in the cap of nine-lawyer van der Veen O’Neill Hartshorn & Levin, the firm will continue to represent its mix of personal injury plaintiffs, criminal defendants and various parties in business disputes.
“The way my practice is divided up is exactly the way I like it,” van der Veen said. “I find it intellectually stimulating. And we have a slow growth process here and I don’t want that to change either.”
