    Justin R. Silberg, Esq.

    justinsilberg@jllaw.org | 215-617-7767 (New Clients) | 215-647-2004 (Existing Clients)


    Justin R. Silberg, Esq. the Founding Attorney of JL LAW, LLC. has had vast achievements over the span of his legal career in the areas of immigration, family, criminal, personal injury and other civil matters. Over his decade of advocating for those across the U.S. and around the world, Justin has developed an enduring passion for defending those facing removal from the U.S. along with child-related immigration matters, specifically, those involving abandonment, neglect or abuse.

    JL LAW, LLC. was created because Justin saw the need to develop an immigration practice where expectations were clarified at the outset of any case and attorneys remained in constant communication with clients over the lifetime of their representation. This rather simple concept would lead to clients developing a close relationship with their individual attorney, and, moreover, the best possible result for clients.

    Justin obtained his license to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, the State of New Jersey, and the U.S. District Court of New Jersey in 2010. A native of Chicago, IL, Justin grew up locally and considers Philadelphia, PA home. In his free time, he enjoys spending him with his family and perfecting his Spanish.
