Before founding Laffey, Bucci & Kent, Pennsylvania and New Jersey workplace and construction accident lawyer, Jeff Laffey, represented hundreds of injured construction workers from all trades – including carpenters, plumbers, electricians, cement masons, iron-workers, laborers, and operating engineers.

Jeff is passionate about protecting the legal rights of injured workers and their families. He is a frequent guest lecturer at various construction trade events on workplace and job safety issues, and he enjoys long-standing, close relationships with a great variety of union representatives throughout the Philadelphia region. This is due in no small part to Jeff’s loyalty to his roots. He is the proud son of a union carpenter, who finds himself fortunate to be in a position to help workers and their families who come into harm’s way through no fault of their own. Jeff considers himself a “blue collar guy with a blue collar approach to the practice of law,” and stands firm in the belief that the true mark of a great attorney is always putting the client first.
