An Imposing Advocate

by Editorial Staff

Over the course of 37 years litigating personal injury matters, Joseph P. Stampone, a Montgomery County resident, has established himself among the Philadelphia region’s most trusted and successful trial attorneys. His many accolades include being named to this year’s Super Lawyers Philadelphia Top 100 List and the National Trial Lawyers Top 100. More recently, Joe was recognized by The Legal Intelligencer as Best Law Firm Mentor in the state of Pennsylvania. He is also a lifetime member of the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum, a prestigious fraternity of elite trial attorneys whom have all secured judgments numbering in the millions. Fewer than one percent of lawyers in the United States are members, and Joe Stampone is one of them.

Personal accomplishments can be gratifying, but no achievement is more evident of Joe’s unrivaled dedication to his clients than the success of his law firm. Since 1984, Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law has advocated for injured clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Florida, and nationwide, with the mission to ensure that victims of wrongdoing receive aggressive, enthusiastic, and competent representation. With a focus on catastrophic personal injury matters including construction accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, defective products, motor vehicle accidents, death and dismemberment, traumatic brain injuries, and wrongful death claims, the Cheltenham-based firm has garnered a 98 percent success rate by winning more than 10,000 cases from the time of its founding.

Family is a driving force behind Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law. Joe’s son, Dan Stampone, and nephews, Tyler Stampone and Kevin O’Brien, lead the way as the firm’s next generation of talented and aggressive attorneys. Staff includes a mix of experienced trial attorneys and youthful, technologically savvy litigators, more than 70 percent of which were named by their peers to the 2020 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers or Rising Stars list.

“We believe that personal injuries need personal attorneys,” Joe says. “We pride ourselves on intelligent, aggressive, and disciplined representation of those who have been denied the compensation they deserve, while recognizing the need for personal support along the way.”

Leading the firm with Joe are partners Kevin O’Brien and J.B. Dilsheimer, both highly experienced and respected trial lawyers who have obtained some of the top verdicts in Pennsylvania and New Jersey as acknowledged by the National Law Journal. Recognizing their expertise in personal injury matters, Kevin and J.B. have taught multiple continuing legal education classes for other lawyers at the Pennsylvania Bar Institute. The two share a passion with Joe for bringing tenacious, hands-on, personal representation in a manner that is down to earth, practical, and decent to all participants in the process.

The partners of Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law not only look for good lawyers to join the team, but they also hire good people who are going to continue to be athletes, photographers, food enthusiasts, and community activists outside of their work in the courtroom and office.

Community-mindedness is the very foundation of Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, which began with Joe’s vow to represent Philly neighborhood guys like himself and protect those that are most vulnerable. To show solidarity with the local community in respect to their work within our country’s justice system, the firm has commissioned nationally renowned artist Eric Okdeh of Mural Arts Philadelphia to paint a mural on the side of their Cottman Avenue building reflecting that strong bond.

“Our goal was to identify a mural that would be admired by the community at large,” Joe says. “This is why we chose Lady Justice with the words distinctly noted at the top ‘Liberty and Justice for All.’"

Eric Okdeh has more than 80 public art commissions in Philadelphia and abroad. Eric has also taught mural arts classes to children and teens throughout the city, as well as to inmates at SCI Graterford. Project Manager Lindsey Rosenberg is overseeing the installation of the mural, which is expected to begin in late 2020.

Another cause very near to Joe’s heart is the Superhero Project, a nonprofit organization started by family friend Kelly Gallagher to raise funds and provide emotional support for families with babies in the neonatal intensive care units of hospitals nationwide. Joe’s work on the board is both a continuation of his life’s commitment to protect the unprotected and a deeply personal investment in the mission of the Superhero Project. Joe and his wife, Julia, have two grandchildren, Stevie and Danny, who were born prematurely, received support from the Superhero Project, and have flourished into strong, active young boys. 

Additionally, Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law is now the title sponsor of the award-winning “Tri the Wildwoods Triathlon & 5K” at the Jersey Shore, run by DelMoSports Inc. The newly minted Stampone Law Tri the Wildwoods is a first-class race that has gained a large regional following among the triathlon and competitive running community over the past 17 years. Joe, a homeowner in Wildwood Crest since 1987, is thrilled to become a presenting partner of this Shore staple. Noted participants have included U.S. Olympians Jarrod Shoemaker and Joe Maloy, a Wildwoods native.

The Stampone Law Tri the Wildwoods is not just the triathlon; it’s an entire weekend dedicated to physical fitness and family fun, including a 5K and a race for children. The 5K supports the Lunch with Lynch Foundation, a local nonprofit that facilitates learning experiences for the children that attend school on the Island of Wildwood and surrounding communities through educational opportunities in and out of the classroom environment. The Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law Perseverance Award will be given to one participant of the kids’ fun run. The event is scheduled to kick off on Aug. 22, 2020.

To Joe Stampone and his staff at Stampone O’Brien Dilsheimer Law, community involvement is not just something ingrained in the corporate culture of the firm; it’s also a way of life. Their promise to every victim of injury in need of legal services is this: You will not find another attorney to better represent your interests than Joe and his team.

They’ll treat you like family, because to them, you will be.
