About Kolsby Gordon
In 1953, nationally-acclaimed trial lawyer Herbert Kolsby assembled a group of top lawyers dedicated to providing the best possible representation to those harmed by the carelessness or negligence of others.
In the years since, every lawyer who has practiced at Kolsby Gordon has sought to live up to this high standard. It shows in our commitment to every client’s cause, our attention to detail, and our leadership within the courtroom and the community. It’s also evident from our long history of prevailing in countless record- and precedent-setting verdicts and settlements on behalf of our clients.
Working for our clients. Obtaining compensation from the wrongdoer is a first step, but ensuring that the compensation improves the quality of life of the victim and the victim’s family is equally important. Kolsby Gordon’s dedication to its clients doesn’t end with a final verdict or settlement. We work with accredited professionals like medical economists and life care planners to make certain our clients get the medical, vocational and other services needed to rebuild their lives after the most tragic of incidents.
Delivering to our clients. Kolsby Gordon’s results are impressive and include a $18.5 million settlement for a brain damaged individual, a $5.3 million jury verdict for a cancer misdiagnosis, a $7.5 million settlement stemming from a defective surgical device, and countless seven-figure settlements and verdicts for victims of negligence and malpractice.
The right skills and background. Our highly-qualified team of attorneys includes board certified medical doctors, nurses, lawyers with advanced engineering degrees, and lawyers with advanced advocacy training.
Decades of national recognitions. Our experienced team of trial attorneys has earned national recognitions including Best Lawyers In America, Pennsylvania Super Lawyers, top one hundred attorneys in Pennsylvania and Membership in the Inner Circle of Advocates, a select group limited to 100 of the nation’s best plaintiffs’ attorneys.
Making a difference. While Kolsby Gordon seeks justice and maximum compensation for our clients, our work has also had larger societal impact. In the early seventies, Kolsby Gordon led the fight to protect women harmed by the pregnancy drug DES and the Dalkon Shield. Today, Kolsby Gordon’s cases have resulted in better ways for physicians to treat Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia, the removal from the market of a defective bed sold to parents of children with disabilities, and stricter penalties for the sale of alcohol to minors.
Kolsby Gordon handles cases throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Kolsby Gordon takes cases that they believe are meritorious and engages in a careful screening process before a case is accepted.
