MyPhillyLawyer is Coming to Serve You Where You Live
By Dean I. Weitzman, Esq. on June 27th, 2014
MyPhillyLawyer has just opened its first-ever office in Northeast Philadelphia, far from the bustle of Center City, where we can now begin serving our clients in the neighborhoods where they live and work.
This is the first time since the birth of our founding law firm in 1976 that MyPhillyLawyer has opened an office away from Center City. The idea of the new office, which is located at 10819 Bustleton Avenue at Lawler Street in the Northeast section of the city, is to bring our talented, compassionate and tireless attorneys out into the neighborhoods to make it easier for our clients to consult with us for their legal needs.
For some clients, it can be inconvenient or nerve-wracking to come into Center City to meet with their attorneys. So we wanted to move our brand into areas in and around Philadelphia where we can now bring our quality legal representation closer to the clients we serve.
The Bustleton office, just north of Washington High School, is just the first of some five locations we will be opening throughout the area over the next 24 to 36 months, in locations where we are visible to the entire community.
MyPhillyLawyer, which as a brand will celebrate its 14th anniversary in November 2014, is a Philadelphia institution. The opening of our first-ever new office is a milestone that’s exciting and I’m very proud of it. We here at MyPhillyLawyer represent the best legal expertise and help for people who need a strong advocate in their fights against insurance companies, employers, other individuals and a myriad of legal situations.
Staffing our first neighborhood office on Bustleton Avenue fulltime is Ms. Irena Shiloh, an attorney who recently joined MyPhillyLawyer after working in her own practice. A graduate of Drexel University’s Earle Mack School of Law, she received her undergraduate degree in business administration from Institut Franco-Americain de Management in Paris, France. During law school, Irena interned for two years for Judge Sandra Mazer Moss in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. This enabled Irena to become intimately familiar with the judicial system and to gain invaluable procedural and substantive experience in the litigation of products liability, personal injury, venue and jurisdictional matters. She also previously worked on mass torts at the Complex Litigation Center, mostly on asbestos motions for summary judgment.
Irena received the Judge Sandra Mazer Moss Award and scholarship from the Louis D. Brandeis Law Society. She previously worked for eight months at the AIDS Law Project of Pennsylvania, which is a nonprofit law office which represents and advocates for people living with HIV.
Irena focuses her practice predominantly on family law, including custody issues, divorce, child support and domestic relations, as well as personal injury law and more.
She has lived in several foreign countries and is fluent in Russian, Serbian, Macedonian and Bulgarian. The mother of two teen-age twin boys, she is also an accomplished singer, songwriter and music producer.
We welcome you to stop in or call to talk with Irena about your legal needs in our new Bustleton Avenue office in the Northeast.
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.
MyPhillyLawyer’s original law firm, Silvers & Langsam, was started in 1976 by the late Arnold Silver and Saul Langsam, who remains with the firm today. Later, I joined the firm, eventually inspiring another name change for the firm to Silvers, Langsam & Weitzman. Since November 2011, MyPhillyLawyer has been the online and public face of the firm and its attorneys and staff.
We here at MyPhillyLawyer stand ready to assist you with your legal case if you or a loved one is ever seriously injured in a vehicle incident or accident anywhere in the United States. We represent the families of victims who die in such tragedies as well, to ensure that their families receive every penny of damages that they are eligible to receive.
Call MyPhillyLawyer at 215-227-2727 or toll-free at 1-866-920-0352 anytime and our experienced, compassionate, aggressive team of attorneys and support staff will be there for you and your family every step of the way as we manage your case through the legal system.
