Before starting this firm, Richard A. Jaffe served as an associate for eight years at a prominent center-city insurance defense firm. He represented injured workers and workers' compensation insurance companies alike. Even then, he gravitated toward helping injured workers. As a result of representing both sides, he was able to learn how insurance companies handle workers' compensation claims, and he uses this knowledge to better represent injured workers in their current claims. Mr. Jaffe has handled well over a thousand cases on behalf of injured workers in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey. He has been selected for inclusion in the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list for 11 years in a row. Additionally, Richard Jaffe was selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America 2015 and 2016 in the field of Workers' Compensation.
