For over a quarter of a century, our firm has worked in several unique and growing areas of catastrophic personal injury in Philadelphia. To address the many questions and inquiries we receive from clients and referring attorneys, we established our firm blog. Here, we have the opportunity to address those questions, share timely news items, highlight legal trends, and feature stories of actual cases we have handled. If you have questions or feedback, you may comment on any of the posts or contact us directly.
As a reminder, this blog serves an informational purpose only. It should not be construed as legal advice, nor does communication through or because of it mean that a formal lawyer/client relationship has been established.
