MYRON SCHONFELD

President & General Counsel of Village Copier, Inc

“If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?” Hillel

After graduating from Brooklyn Law School, where he was the Senior Editor of Law Review, Myron practiced law for a decade, specializing in civil litigation. Then, in the early 1970’s, friends offered to sell him a copy store they had recently opened. It seemed like a fun idea, and with his wife and sister available to work, Myron purchased the store and the Village Copier brand was born. However, a promising legal career was ended.

Several years later, with Village Copier growing and humming along, another opportunity presented itself to Myron. Situated a few doors down from Village Copier on 43rd Street was an appellate printer, PrintingHouse Press. Myron had struck up a friendship with the long time owners and was told the business was up for sale. Seeing an opportunity to again align himself with the legal field, Myron purchased PrintingHouse Press and a once small family appellate printer has grown into the leading appellate services provider in the industry. Now almost 50 years later that one store has morphed into a third business, as vdiscovery, the litigation support division, is recognized as one of the country’s premier providers of digital forensics and electronic discovery services.

Three distinct businesses, now known as PHP, Village Print & Media and vdiscovery, all delivering different products and services, but with a common commitment to product excellence and providing outstanding responsive service.
