About Me

Joseph Montgomery earned his J.D. Degree from Widener University School of Law.  Widener Law honored Mr. Montgomery with the outstanding service award as well as the pro bono distinction for his work in the community.  Mr. Montgomery soon joined the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted criminals for many successful years, spending most every day battling in court rooms.  Mr. Montgomery believed that in starting his own practice, he could be more effective in helping people deal with specific legal issues, particularly education related.


Mr. Montgomery founded Montgomery Law, LLC. Montgomery Law has allowed Mr. Montgomery to fully realize his passion for helping children and families at all levels of litigation and protection.


Joe treats every client with respect and integrity.
