PHILADELPHIA, PA – May 18, 2015

Philadelphia personal injury attorneys at Messa & Associates, P.C. proudly announce that seven of the firm’s thirteen attorneys have been selected to the 2015 Pennsylvania Super Lawyers list and two of those seven have also been selected as Top 100 in Philadelphia and Top 100 in Pennsylvania. Two additional Messa & Associates attorneys were named to the Pennsylvania Rising Stars list for 2015. Less than 5 percent of the attorneys in the state are selected by Super Lawyers.

“We at Messa & Associates strive to ensure that our focus remains on the needs of our clients,” said Joe Messa today. “I am pleased to work with an esteemed group of attorneys that has consistently been recognized by their peers for the outstanding work they do every day to serve the clients of our firm.”

Among the clients highlighted is Julia Pison, a 61-year-old woman who suffered a traumatic brain injury six years ago after being broadsided in her car by a driver running a red light. Julia is featured in the firm’s Pennsylvania Super Lawyers ad.
