About Jeffrey

Over the course of his career, Pennsylvania and New Jersey workplace and construction accident lawyer, Jeff Laffey, has won multimillion-dollar recoveries on behalf of hundreds of injured union construction workers from all trades – including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, cement masons, ironworkers, laborers, and operating engineers.

Jeff is passionate about protecting the legal rights of injured union workers and their families, due in no small part to his loyalty to his roots. The proud son of a union carpenter, Jeff finds himself fortunate to be in a position to help workers and their families who come into harm’s way through no fault of their own. He considers himself a “blue collar guy with a blue-collar approach to the practice of law,” and stands firm in the belief that the true mark of a great attorney is always putting the client first and always leveling with the client.

For more than two decades, Jeff has served people who have been injured in construction and workplace accidents, auto accidents and in other negligence matters. He has helped the victims of many types of accidents to recover multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements in:

  • Industrial accidents
  • Scaffolding and building collapses
  • Defective saftey equipment and failure to supply fall protections
  • Medical malpractice such as improper diagnosis, surgical infection, medical mistakes
  • Forklift accidents
  • Electrical explosions and chemical exposures
  • Defective products
  • DUI accidents

Jeff serves frequently as a guest lecturer at various construction trade events on workplace safety issues. He earned his bachelor’s degree from St. Joseph’s University, his law degree from Villanova Law School, and his master’s degree in trial advocacy from James E. Beasley School of Law at Temple University. He has been recognized year after year as a Pennsylvania Super Lawyer® and by the National Trial Lawyers Association as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in Pennsylvania. He also has been named among the Nation’s Top One Percent by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel.

Jeff is a member of the Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Association, the Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association, and Trial Lawyers for Public Justice. To hear more about Jeff’s background and Laffey Bucci D’Andrea Reich & Ryan, listen to Jeff’s appearance on American Justice Radio Network.
