The term Philadelphia Lawyer appears in many dictionaries and encyclopedias. It is used to describe an extremely competent lawyer, with a reputation for being particularly capable in resolving and winning lawsuits. A Philadelphia lawyer is an attorney who is highly skilled, cunning, and adept at legal maneuvering.
It was originally a reference to Andrew Hamilton, a prominent lawyer in the Philadelphia and Bucks County area during the 18th century, who came out of retirement to defend Peter Zenger, a printer charged with libel. To everyone’s surprise, Hamilton prevailed and established a precedent of using truth as a defense to libel, a novel theory at the time.
The Salem Observer of March 13, 1824, stated, “The New England folks have a saying, that three Philadelphia lawyers are a match for the very devil himself.”

Most people don’t go to a business lawyer until there is a problem. However, we believe that most litigation and legal dispute can be avoided if small business owners obtain advice and guidance before the issues arise. We advise our clients to prepare and execute shareholder / partnership agreements at the start of their business dealings–rather than in hindsight.
Similarly, our clients have better results when they enter into agreements with their employees and service providers at the beginning of the relationship. This avoids he-said / she-said disputes and helps establish the existence and substance of the parties’ agreement.
There are several key qualities to look for in a good business lawyer to represent your business:
We are a boutique firm that handles many different types of lawsuit and litigation matters. Most of our representation involves business issues, shareholder / partnership disputes, and the drafting and enforcement of small business contracts. We also pursue claims on behalf of individuals, including consumer fraud, recovery of employee overtime and unpaid wages, harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. We also represent clients in various personal injury matters, defamation, cemetery negligence and funeral home malpractice and pursue justice for both physical and emotional harms. For more information see our practice areas above.
It depends. Various claims will have different statutes of limitations. Those statutes of limitations typically begin to run from the moment that you were harmed or should have realized you may have a claim. For that reason, it is very important to consult with an attorney as soon as you believe there may be a claim so that all possible claims can be evaluated, the statutes of limitations for each claim be calendared, and a deadline to file suit is not missed accidentally.
Yes. We offer free consultations by phone, in person, or virtually through Zoom. We first ask that you provide basic information and documents to our intake specialists. They will then prepare a summary for our attorneys and schedule a more in-depth discussion.
Before you proceed with a lawsuit, it is best to have your story outlined and to gather any relevant documents and communications that support your side of the story. Remember, while you have lived your dispute for a while before you go see a lawyer, the the lawyer is typically hearing about your issue for the first time. Be ready to explain your story chronologically and in a way that flows logically to get the most out of your free consultation.
It depends on the type of representation. We take most personal injury, cemetery, and funeral home cases on contingency. This means we only get paid when you get paid. For contract drafting matters, we typically charge a flat fee. For small business representation we request a retainer and work against the retainer on an hourly basis.
Our lawyers are currently licensed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Texas.

Yes. We do our best to keep our legal representation practical and cost effective. If certain simple tasks can be performed by law clerks, paralegals, or lawyers that charge a lower hourly rate, we will usually have those tasks performed in the most efficient manner possible. However, a supervising attorney always oversees junior staff and will review documents before they are filed or provided to the other side. Also, if there is another attorney with more experience in the office, we will work together on your case to get the best possible result.
