Dilworth Paxson is proud to announce that Jerry R. DeSiderato, a Partner at the Firm, has been named to The Legal Intelligencer’s 2017 Lawyers on the Fast Track. The awards for Professional Excellence will be held on Thursday, June 22 at the Crystal Tea Room.
Jerry maintains a diverse practice, with an emphasis on complex commercial, financial services and bankruptcy litigation. He has handled both the defense and prosecution of claims in state and federal courts and arbitral tribunals throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Jerry became a partner in 2013, having only joined the ranks of Dilworth Paxson in the year prior. He quickly developed his own practice within the Firm's relatively large litigation department over the past five years and has worked to obtain significant victories on numerous complicated and highly visible matters for multiple institutional clients. As he continues to build his practice and his professional development, Jerry manages to provide pro bono services through his involvement as a Child Advocate for the Support Center for Child Advocates. He served as a board member of the Safe America Foundation where he capably led the Philadelphia Task Force. Among others, he sits on the Corporate Executive Board of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
