Current Cases

For more than fifty years, The Beasley Firm has fought for the rights of injured persons and their families, including in some nationally-known cases that changed the way companies practiced business, changed the way public authorities operated, and changed the law for the better. We won the first million-dollar verdict in Pennsylvania back in 1967, and we have always prepared cases not just to resolve them for the first settlement offer, but prepared our clients’ cases as if they were our own causes, to ensure they are ready for trial and appeal.

Everyone in Philadelphia says they “go the distance” — we really do. Perseverance pays off: some of our greatest successes happened after years of litigation, sometimes after re-trials.

The tradition continues today, and we continue to look for cases that can make a real impact both for our clients and for society at large, and continue to prepare every case for trial, to ensure our clients’ causes are represented as best as they possibly can be.  Some of our current cases being investigated or in suit include:
