September 2017

by Josephine Cusumano

Oftentimes, we don’t anticipate ever needing an attorney, but when a crisis calls for it, you need the best in your corner. Yet, finding the most adept attorney to fight for a client’s rights, needs, and best interests can be cumbersome—especially when one is most unfamiliar with the field.

That’s why Suburban Life/Philadelphia Life is proud to present the annual Top Attorneys list for 2017, highlighting the best legal practitioners who specialize in all different sectors from business law, divorce to medical malpractice. As voted by our readers, this list encompasses attorneys spanning the Greater Philadelphia Area, giving you the best chance to find the right person to fight for you.
