About Joseph

I am a 2nd generation personal injury lawyer who practiced in a personal injury boutique with my father and sisters before joining Donald F. Manchel & Associates in 1997. In 2010, I joined Kane & Silverman, PC to allow me to better serve my clients with offices in Philadelphia, Lancaster and Marlton. I was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and raised in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. I am a cum laude graduate of the University of Dayton and received my J.D. from Villanova University School of Law in 1989. Since marrying my wife, Vicky, in 1993, I have resided in Eastern Montgomery County, Pennsylvania where I am an active member of the community and raising my two children. I am a Past President and member of the Kiwanis Club of Glenside. While President, the club was honored by Kiwanis International with the Emerald Award for outstanding community service. At Kane & Silverman, PC, I practice exclusively civil litigation on behalf of injured victims. I concentrate in the areas of traumatic brain injuries, dog bites, premises liability, FELA, motor vehicle liability, products liability and wrongful death. I have tried cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as a member of the Bar of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and State of New Jersey along with several United States District Courts. I have also argued before the Superior Court of Pennsylvania. In addition, I am an active member of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and America Trial Lawyers Associations as well as the Philadelphia Bar Association, and have been a lecturer for continuing legal education seminars, where I have spoken on investigating a premises liability claim and evidentiary issues in motor vehicle cases. I am proud to say that I am an accident lawyer that has successfully handled hundreds of personal injury cases including securing individual settlements in excess of $1 million.
