About me

Since 1979, Nancy Abrams has concentrated her legal practice in the areas of labor and employment law.


Before joining Spector Gadon & Rosen in November 1999, she practiced with the Philadelphia law firm of Jablon Epstein, well-regarded for its successful representation of high-profile cases that involve a wide range of workplace-related issues.

Ms. Abrams has authored numerous articles on employment-related topics for industry publications such as Personnel, Rental Management, Personnel Administration Journal of Commerce & Finance, and Honeywell Monthly. She has also applied her workplace-related legal experience as a past adjunct professor at Drexel University, as a participant in Pennsylvania Bar Institute's CLE seminars on employment law, one of which was broadcast state-wide via satellite, and as an instructor for numerous seminars for Lorman Education Services.


A member of the Pennsylvania Bar Association and the American Arbitration Association, Ms. Abrams has also been co-chair of the Philadelphia Bar Association's Theatre Wing and is chair of the Board of Directors of the Feverdream Productions, a professional theater group in Philadelphia.
