Welcome to the website of Emmanuel Law Firm, LLC, a Philadelphia plaintiffs' personal injury firm. Emmanuel Law Firm, LLC is located inside 2 Penn Center-across the street from City Hall, Love Park, and Municipal Services Building in the heart of downtown Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Emmanuel Law Firm, LLC is committed and dedicated to the aggressive, yet courteous representation of injury victims in medical, dental, hospital, nursing, pharmacy, prescription drug, auto, and other negligence cases. All injury cases are accepted on a contingency fee, no recovery, no fee basis. That means that unless our firm recovers money for a plaintiff in a personal injury action there is no obligation for payment of fees and costs of litigation.

Under the direction of Emmanuel O. Iheukwumere, Juris Doctor, Attorney & Adjunct Professor of Law, Emmanuel Law Firm, LLC investigates and litigates personal injury cases against some of the biggest defense law firms in Pennsylvania. Emmanuel graduated with highest academic honors (summa cum laude) from Clarion University of Pennsylvania, and obtained his Juris Doctorate degree (with the Bertram K. Wolf award at graduation) from Temple University Beasley School of Law. For almost two decades Emmanuel has litigated cases on behalf of plaintiffs before juries and judges in different courts, and parts of Pennsylvania. In recognition of Emmanuel's ability as a practicing attorney, the publishers of Philadelphia Magazine have many times named him one of the best plaintiffs' personal injury attorneys in Pennsylvania with the designation of a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer. The Super Lawyer designation is an honor given to lawyers recognized by their peers as outstanding in the practice of law, and as being within the top 5% of practicing attorneys in Pennsylvania. In addition, Emmanuel has been recognized as being within the top one percent of attorneys in the United States with his selection to the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.

The attorneys at Emmanuel Law Firm, LLC are well-published, and are actively involved in many professional organizations and in their communities. For example, the founder of the firm-Emmanuel, is a well-published author with about three dozen published articles in respected legal journals and newspapers on various subjects in law and social issues including, among others, medical malpractice, informed consent, pharmaceutical litigation, HMO liability, hospital corporate negligence, sovereign immunity under Pennsylvania law, political corruption in developing countries, judicial independence, and punitive damages under Pennsylvania law. Emmanuel is active in many professional legal organizations where he has held, and continues to hold various leadership positions, including formerly serving on the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and currently serving on the Board of Governors of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, formerly known as the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, Board of Directors of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, Board of Trustees of the Philadelphia Bar Foundation, and the Editorial Board of the Philadelphia Lawyer Magazine. Emmanuel is a past Chairman of the Minority Bar Committee of the Pennsylvania Bar Association. In 2005 the President of the Pennsylvania Bar Association recognized Emmanuel for his service as the Co-Chair of the inaugural late Chief Justice Robert N.C. Nix Symposium on judicial independence.
