Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of MyPhillyLawyer: Our Thanks to You, Our Clients

June 28th, 2018

By Dean I Weitzman, Esq.


This week marks the 10th anniversary of the creation of the MyPhillyLawyer brand in the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

From the streets of Philadelphia’s incredible neighborhoods to the Jersey Shore, to Delaware, Maryland and north to Allentown, Easton and Bethlehem, the attorneys and staff of MyPhillyLawyer work hard every day to serve a diverse range of clients who are involved in a myriad of legal cases.

From personal injury cases to automobile, motorcycle, truck and other vehicle accidents, we are there to help you every step of the way, representing you and fighting for you and your family from depositions to court appearances to settlement talks and every step in between.

We’re there to handle a wide range of other legal cases, including medical malpractice, birth injuries, workplace injuries, estate law and estate planning, wills, criminal cases, worker’s compensation cases and more.

So what does the 10-year anniversary of MyPhillyLawyer mean to us here at the firm?

“To me, the MyPhillyLawyer brand symbolizes the image of a Philadelphia lawyer as one who is tenacious on behalf of his clients and who works tirelessly to understand his clients and their needs,” says Dean Weitzman, managing partner of MyPhillyLawyer.  “It symbolizes attorneys who put their clients’ behalf at the forefront of their work.”

“That branding is not by accident,” Weitzman says. “When you see our MyPhillyLawyer ads on TV or billboards or on the sides of city buses, those ads look different than ads you will see from any other law firms. That’s not by chance.  We run those ads because they show the lawyers of MyPhillyLawyer in their element – on the streets of Philadelphia in the same places where our clients are. I’m not sitting at a desk in a law library with law books behind me. I’m out at Pat’s Steaks. I’m in front of Citizens Bank Park. I’m on Logan Circle in front of the fountain. I’m where our clients live, work and play.”

“When our clients are involved in a legal case, they are typically going through a tough time and need an attorney who will be there for them, to support them emotionally and help them through the maze of the legal system,” Weitzman says. “That’s the kind of compassionate service that we provide to each and every client who we represent.  That’s what our clients feel from us.”

The MyPhillyLawyer moniker is how we created an online presence for the original law firm on which the company is based. The original firm, Silvers & Langsam, was started in 1976 by the late Arnold Silver and Saul Langsam, who remains with the firm today. Later, Dean Weitzman joined the firm, eventually inspiring another name change for the firm to Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman. Today, MyPhillyLawyer is the online and public face of the firm and its attorneys and staff.

Over the years, the MyPhillyLawyer Web site has grown to include a large number of useful resources for clients and prospective clients.

There’s our own MyPhillyLawyer Blog page, where you can read about a wide range of legal issues and cases in the news and get advice, insights and great information.

Then there is the popular and engaging MyPhillyLawyer Court Radio show, hosted by Dean Weitzman and broadcast every Sunday morning at 7 a.m. on WRNB-FM 100.3 in Philadelphia. The innovative radio show, which encourages callers to phone in with any legal questions or comments that they have, is simulcast on the station’s Web page so you can listen in from anywhere with Internet access.

Do you know that you can also find MyPhillyLawyer on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube? Feel free to check in regularly on each site and subscribe to our Facebook posts, Twitter Tweets and YouTube videos so you can stay up to date on what we are up to here at MyPhillyLawyer. Don’t forget to send in your comments and questions, too.

We’re proud of the work we have done on behalf of our clients over the last 10 years and we are grateful to all of you for bestowing your trust in us. We look forward to serving your legal needs whenever you need us.

To every one of our thousands of clients over the years, we say thank you.

Best wishes for a Happy and Safe Holiday Season to you all.
