Where the Only Case that Matters is Yours

A Personal Note...


“I have dedicated my career to representing people injured or killed from preventable accidents and dangerous products. My clients come from all walks of life, and I handle their lawsuits like I would for family. And that’s because the most important case to me is Yours. The unfortunate truth is that not all lawyers are of equal caliber, and not all law firms have the same resources to pursue your claims to the fullest. Choosing the right attorney is the difference between receiving fair compensation for you or a loved one’s injuries and receiving too little or nothing at all. Along with providing personal attention to each one of my clients, I am proud of the work I’ve accomplished over my career. And I'm honored for the lives I’ve changed when securing my clients countless millions of dollars in awards and settlements. If you or a loved one have been injured, let’s have a conversation – they changed your life for the worse, let me work to make it better.”

                                             Thomas G. Oakes II


"The Oakes Firm is a premier boutique law firm servicing clients who have
been catastrophically injured or killed due to the fault of another."

Why Families Choose The Oakes Firm...

No matter how careful you are, no one predict how others will act. And in an instant, your life can be profoundly and permanently changed by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. All of our clients have suffered a tragedy like this. But because no one can turn back the hands of time, how do You seek justice? In addition to fair financial compensation, our clients tell us the same thing over and over again – “We want to tell our story. We want them to understand how they’ve impacted my family, and that my life matters. And we want to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else.The Oakes Firm will be Your voice.

We understand that you may find yourself at one of the most vulnerable points in your life while coping with an injury or loss of a loved one. The consequences of a serious or catastrophic accident can be devastating – the physical pain and suffering, overwhelming medical bills, lost wages, the stress, and loss of life’s pleasures. And we also understand the frustration that you may be experiencing when dealing with an insurance company or the at-fault party who refuses to take responsibility for their actions.


The legal world is complex and often intimidating to those not routinely involved in litigation. Many potential lawsuits are never filed because victims simply do not know who to turn to in their time of need, and the process of searching for the right person to represent you can be disheartening.

We are a Philadelphia based firm with a national footprint, dedicated to representing victims and survivors involved in all types of tragedies. We bring an unrivaled level of expertise and attention to each one of our clients – because the only case that matters is Yours.

Reviewing Legal Agreement

Do I Have a Case?

The circumstances of each accident are unique. The best way to determine whether you have a viable legal claim is to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. The Oakes Firm provides free case evaluations. We can speak over the phone, zoom, in person, or by whatever means you would like. 


How Much Time Do I Have?

The Statute of Limitations sets a strictly-enforced time limit to file a lawsuit. In most states, you have two years to file a personal injury lawsuit from the date of an accident. If you or a loved one have been injured, it is best to contact The Oakes Firm immediately. The clock is ticking.
