Philadelphia Medical Malpractice Lawyers

At The Colleran Firm, our primary goal is to provide aggressive advocacy on behalf of our clients. If our clients do not receive adequate compensation after a personal injury or wrongful death, their quality of life will be negatively affected. We work hard to achieve the best possible results on their behalf.

We make it a priority to treat our clients with respect. Even if we cannot take your case, we will provide a thorough explanation of the reasons for this decision. Because of this attention to detail, we commonly receive referrals from people whose cases we have declined because of the care and respect we showed them.
