You can do a search on Avvo.com to find one but the type of work that you are requesting can be done by any experienced music entertainment attorney anywhere. All you need is telephone/Skype and email.
Ivan J. Parron, Esq.
Yes. There are several well known music industry attorneys based in Philadelphia.
This post does not create an attorney-client relationship between my firm and the asker. In all events, the asker is well advised to secure advice from an attorney with experience in the area covered by the question asked. This answer is posted for general purposes only.
There is a Find a Lawyer function at the bottom of this page, left hand column.
It is not permitted to solicit clients by the attorneys on Avvo under our Community Guidelines also set forth below.
The above is general legal and business analysis. It is not "legal advice" but analysis, and different lawyers may analyse this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. I am only licensed in California. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here.
Patent Infringement Attorney
There are many qualified and highly experienced music and entertainment lawyers in the Philadelphia area. Search as suggested and call around. But Ivan is also right. Many lawyers are accustomed to doing business nationally with modern communication. For example, I regularly handle cases in CA from NJ, and entertainment lawyers in my firm in LA work with clients on the east coast. Good luck.

Contracts / Agreements Lawyer
Many state bar association websites allow the public to search for members of that bar by legal specialty or area of practice.
Corporate / Incorporation Lawyer
Hi Ykesha, yes there are many reputable entertainment attorneys in Philadelphia (I actually went to law school in Philadelphia, so know that for a fact!). You should search Avvo or the PA State Bar's website for attorneys that specialize in this area. Best of luck with your new venture!
