An Award-Winning Personal Injury Firm
Philadelphia Injury Law Firm - Over $100 Million Recovered
A Personal Note...
“I have dedicated my career to representing people injured or killed from preventable accidents and dangerous products. My clients come from all walks of life, and I handle their lawsuits like I would for family. And that’s because the most important case to me is Yours. The unfortunate truth is that not all lawyers are of equal caliber, and not all law firms have the same time or resources to pursue your claims to the fullest. Choosing the right attorney is the difference between receiving fair compensation for you or a loved one and receiving too little or nothing at all. Along with providing personal attention to each one of my clients, I am proud of the work I’ve accomplished over my career. And I'm honored for the lives I’ve changed when securing my clients countless millions of dollars in awards and settlements. If you or a loved one have been injured, let’s have a conversation – they changed your life for the worse, let me work to make it better.”
"The Oakes Firm is a premier boutique law firm servicing clients who have
been catastrophically injured or killed due to the fault of another."
Why Families Choose The Oakes Firm.
No matter how careful you are, no one can predict how others will act. And in an instant, your life can be profoundly and permanently changed by the wrongdoing of another. All of our clients have suffered a tragedy like this. But because no one can turn back the hands of time, how do You seek justice? In addition to fair financial compensation, our clients tell us the same thing over and over again – “We want to tell our story. We want them to understand how they’ve impacted my family. And we want to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.” The Oakes Firm will be Your voice. We understand that You may find yourself at one of the most vulnerable points in your life while coping with an injury or loss of a loved one. The consequences of a catastrophic incident can be devastating – the pain and suffering, overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, and loss of life’s pleasures. And we also understand the frustration that You may be experiencing when dealing with an insurance company or the at-fault party who refuses to take responsibility for their actions. The legal world is complex and often intimidating to those not routinely involved in litigation. Many potential lawsuits are never filed because victims simply do not know where to turn to in their time of need, and the process of searching for the right person to represent you can be disheartening.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I Have a Lawsuit?
The circumstances of each accident are unique. The best way to determine whether you have a viable legal claim is to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. The Oakes Firm provides free case evaluations. We can speak however you prefer - in person, over the phone or zoom.
How Much Time Do I Have?
The Statute of Limitations sets a strictly-enforced time limit to file a lawsuit. In most states, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit from the date of an accident. But some evidence must be collected right away. Don't wait to speak with The Oakes Firm - the clock is ticking.
How Much Does it Cost?
Retaining The Oakes Firm is absolutely free. We work on a contingency fee, which means we cover all case costs with no out-of-pocket costs to you. We only get paid if we win or settle your case. This means that we have as much incentive as you to pursue the best possible result.
