The selection process is based on peer nominations, evaluations and independent research.
Laffey, Bucci & Kent attorneys have been rated by Super Lawyers for a majority of the past 10 years. Jeff Laffey has been rated as a Super Lawyer or Rising Star for the last decade. Paul Bucci and Brian Kent have been rated since 2008 and 2005 respectively.

Representative Personal Injury Cases

They specialize in OSHA violation cases, such as roof fall accidents, forklift accidents and scaffold accidents. Combined, they have achieved an impressive $150 million in work injury verdicts and settlements alone.
Crime Victim Injuries
Firm founder Brian Kent is a former sex crimes unit prosecutor who uses his wealth of knowledge of criminal investigations and prosecutions to provide the best possible representation in crime injury cases such as priest abuse, school abuse and abuse by professionals (doctors, therapists, etc.).
In one high profile case, the firm represented a man in a civil child molestation case against a state court judge in Delaware. Mr. Kent and his partners, Jeff Laffey and Paul Bucci, agreed to take the case despite backlash from the local legal community in Delaware. Unfortunately, the case was beyond the criminal statute of limitations; hence, the only recourse was a civil lawsuit. The civil case was successful, and the judge admitted to committing acts of child sex abuse.
