The Cardamone Law Story

Comp? Cardamone!

Cardamone Law was founded in November 2013 by Certified Pennsylvania Work Comp Lawyer, Michael W. Cardamone. (“Cards”)  Prior to opening Cardamone Law, Michael handled workers’ compensation cases for 15 years for several firms including a large, prominent Claimant’s firm for nine years. Due to Michael’s passion, dedication, and success, in addition to his unique, friendly style, his client base started to swell. Injured workers were finding out that a workers’ compensation attorney could obtain tremendous results and be friendly and down to earth at the same time. Indeed, having respect for his clients and treating them with the dignity they deserve is Michael’s trademark. While the firms he had worked for were great firms, he wanted to open up a small, boutique firm that dedicated 100% of its practice to injured workers- not dabbling in any other areas of law. This would make the firm ultra- efficient and accessible to its clients- injured workers in Eastern and Central Pennsylvania. This was a risk as virtually every other firm that touts itself as a “Workers’ Compensation Firm” also handles social security disability and/or personal injury law. But Cardamone’s model has worked. Injured workers get one -on- one attention from a Certified Specialist, knowing that 100% of the firm’s expertise lies in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation.

Cardamone Law is headquartered in Blue Bell, a beautiful, suburb of Philadelphia and only 30 minutes or so from downtown Philadelphia. Soon after opening in late 2013, Cardamone added satellite offices in Philadelphia, Exton, Lehigh Valley, and Lancaster. As of 2019, the firm doesn’t have an Exton office, but opened a location in Pittsbugh- giving us the ability to handle cases all over Pennsylvania.

Since opening Cardamone Law, Attorney Cardamone has continued to be recognized for excellence in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Law. He has been named to the Best Attorneys of America by Rue Ratings, Top 10 in Pennsylvania by the American Institute of Personal Injury Attorneys, Top 10 Personal Injury Attorney in Pennsylvania by the NAOPIA, Top Attorneys of North America by Who’s Who, Top 100 Employment Lawyers in Pennsylvania (National Advocates),  has been re-certified as Lead Counsel Rated, and has continued to be recognized as a Pennsylvania Workers’ Comp Super Lawyer, in addition to maintaining his 10/10 Superb Rating on Avvo. In 2020, Cardamone was welcomed to the Million Dollar Advocates for a landmark Workers’ Comp Settlement of over 2 million dollars.

Michael was the voice for the 94 WIP Radio spot for the firm, which aired in 2014 and 2015. He wanted to show injured workers how accessible the firm is by doing the ad himself, rather than a total stranger. Cardamone Law, and Attorney Cardamone’s personal brand- MyPhilly WorkersComp Attorney– reached tens of thousands of listeners and increased the firm’s presence.

In 2018, the firm applied for a trademark for the term “Comp? Cardamone!“.  This simple motto reflects our unique firm- all we do is PA Work Comp and we’re the firm for serious injury cases.

In 2020 and 2021, Attorney Cardamone has been a featured guest on the “Ask the Experts” Radio Show on Talk 860, speaking about Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Law.

Cardamone Law is further powered by a highly experienced Work Comp Attorney, John Daly, and Paul Silver, who serves as Of Counsel to the Firm, a great Office Manager, as well as a Spanish translator, and a Marketing Manager. In the summer of 2021, Cardamone Law welcomes intern, Christian Smallwood.

Cardamone Law is available to injured workers 7 days a week. (215) 206-9068 or Email
