A comment directed to Partner Bill Longo regarding partner Jen Coatsworth’s efforts on behalf of a real estate client she defended: “Hi Bill. We wanted to share with you how pleased we were working with Jennifer and the full Margolis Edelstein firm.  We can’t thank Jennifer enough for her extreme professionalism, thoughtful support and most importantly truly personally caring about us and not just treating us like another “client”. Jennifer did an amazing job defending our case with her efficient and effective communications that resulted in saving us a significant amount of money on the settlement and fees.  We couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer to be by our side through such a stressful and traumatic process.  Jennifer is one in a million! Please feel free to use any of our above comments as a testimonial – as we want to be sure to share the word on how amazing your firm and Jennifer is!”

Pittsburgh-based Partner, Kyle McGee, was asked to take over the defense in a complex employment discrimination matter in West Virginia that involved allegations of sexual harassment, gender discrimination, retaliation, reprisal and wrongful discharge. After the Court granted summary judgment in our clients’ favor in-house counsel stated, “Our entire team knows how difficult it is to obtain summary judgment in an employment case and particularly in a sexual harassment case. This is really an incredible result. Thank you so much for coming into this case late in the game, for your quick catch up, and for your devoted work and effort on this case. It resulted in a fantastic MSJ and reply and obviously the Court agreed. Thank you so much for your hard and thoughtful work on this case – I can’t really convey over email just how much we all appreciate it!”

A Litigation Specialist provided the following note to the VP Claims of a regional commercial insurer:

“Hi Steve, It pays to hire the right people – it did not take long for the Margolis team to untie this knot. I’m not sure how Bill Longo did it, but he did. Bill knows the Philly landscape and characters well and has tremendous credibility, that is for sure. I can’t wait to tell the insured and the agent. Just wanted to let you know.”

Hopefully our paths will cross again in the future, however, not on the same basis! Again, thank you for your ongoing, unwavering support …”

“Having tried a few cases with you, it is always a pleasure to be the trial judge in cases which you appear. You epitomize the best of our trial lawyer traditions; fighting hard in the courtroom with professionalism yet being friendly and collegial with all outside the courtroom. Hopefully you are passing along these traits to your associates.”
