Wayne Partenheimer joined Bennett Bricklin & Saltzburg LLC as counsel in 2006 after several years in the property department of a large Philadelphia firm.  He previously worked in-house for more than 17 years for two major insurance carriers where, in addition to defending errors and omissions claims for insurance agents, real estate agents and surveyors, he handled products liability and premises liability matters for a number of other clients.  His trial experience also includes trial of a number of criminal cases as an Assistant Atlantic County Prosecutor and in private practice.

Wayne has  been licensed to practice in New Jersey and Pennsylvania since 1978 and is admitted to the United States District Courts for the Eastern and Middle Districts of Pennsylvania and the District of New Jersey, the United States Courts of Appeals for the Third Circuit and for the Federal Circuit and to the United States Supreme Court.

Wayne is a 1968 graduate of Gettysburg College, and received an M.S. in broadcasting from the Newhouse School of Public Communications of Syracuse University in 1972 where he was a news reporter for WNDR-AM, "The Rock of Syracuse," and a stringer for AP Audio's Empire State Network. After working for several newspapers, including the old Evening Bulletin in Philadelphia and the Courier-Post in South Jersey, he received his J.D. from Widener University in 1978 where he was a member of the National Moot Court team.

A soccer player in college, Wayne is a past-president of the Medford Strikers Soccer Club in New Jersey, where he helped coach four state champions and more than 25 Division 1 college players.  He is a former editor of the Philadelphia Bar Association magazine, The Philadelphia Lawyer, and a past president of the William Penn Charter School Alumni Society.

Away from the practice of law and soccer, Wayne is a runner who has completed seven marathons (and seen his son beat all his times) and an enthusiastic traveler, especially to New England and to Germany and the rest of Europe.
