Sweda Advertising Attorney Appointed to Pennsylvania Supreme Court

Sweda Advertising is proud to announce that Attorney Bruce S. Zero of Moscow has been reappointed by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court as a member of the Pennsylvania Lawyers Fund for Client Security Board and has also been designated Vice‐Chair for a term of three years commencing April 1, 2023.

“I am honored and humbled by the reappointment to such an important board,” stated Zero. “When a lawyer violates the trust of a client by misappropriating funds, it unfortunately tarnishes the reputation of our entire profession. Thankfully, the Supreme Court has established the Lawyers Fund for Client Security to attempt to right those wrongs and make those clients whole.”
Established in 1982, the Fund receives its financial support from members of the Pennsylvania Bar through an annual fee that each lawyer must pay in order to keep their PA law license.

The Fund is overseen by a seven‐member volunteer board appointed by the Supreme Court, including five lawyers and two non‐lawyers. Each member may serve up to two three‐year terms. Zero, a partner at Powell, Zero, Mundy, has 38 years of extensive civil litigation and trial experience in state and federal courts in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York in the areas of motor vehicle and truck accidents, product liability, medical malpractice and work place injuries.

Named a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer every year since 2007, Zero is board‐certified as a Civil Trial Specialist and Pre‐Trial Civil Practice Attorney by the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He also serves on the Board of Lackawanna Pro Bono as Vice‐President, which provides legal representation to financially disadvantaged individuals free of charge.
