ThePhillyLawyers and the Law Offices of R. Emmett Madden Esquire are pleased to announce that after a precedent setting year of successes, both in the personal injury and criminal defense courts, we have once again received the honor of being named a Philadelphia Super Lawyer. As featured in the most recent Philadelphia Magazine issue (June, 2017) and in Super Lawyers Magazine, we continue with record-breaking verdicts for those injured in major catastrophes, including building collapses, and serious truck, car, and motorcycle accidents.

We are honored to receive this award once again and look forward to continuing serving those most in need.
