Harold Semanoff is a rare individual who possesses the personal characteristics not usually associated with an attorney's reputation. His integrity, compassion and understanding are at the heart of what he is all about. I was involved in a car accident and Harold counseled me before and after my spinal surgery, not only on a professional level, but on a personal level as well. Sometimes I felt like I should send him my psychological payments! He helped me with my physical pain, in addition to my emotional pain. Harold has a very calming presence that was extremely helpful during my traumatic experience. Rather than telling me what to do, he allowed me the freedom to express my own concerns and fears and actually listened to me--It felt like we were a team rather than just being dictated to.
I've had the pleasure of dealing with Harold on multiple issues and he has always been a consumate professional. He is someone who I would absolutely recommend and I am proud to call him my friend as well as my attorney.

Mr.Semanoff is a Honorable,trustworthy Lawyer. He follows through on details, returns telephone calls and know call is insignificant. As a lawyer he obtained justice for my case. I respect him as a person.

Harold has been a true pleasure to work with! For all the bad things said about lawyers he is exactly the opposite. He gets back to you promptly and truly shows that he not only cares about your case but also about you personally. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for someone dependable! Thanks again Harold for all of your help. Steve and Brianne

Harold is an excellent lawyer! I am proud to say that he truly is trustworthy, caring, and responsive (which is rare in a lawyer).
While working with him on my case, he not only kept me informed, but cared enough about me as a person to check in to provide insight on my healthcare and treatment options (free), which actually didn't help nor hurt my case but was meant for my personal use only. My case is long over and he continues to provide assistance where he can and responds to all of my emails. I've recommended his services to family and friends and will not hesistate to call him "my lawyer" and my friend.

Mr. Semanoff was recommended to me by a friend that never had the need for an attorney, but knew of Harold's exceptional reputation as an experienced and caring attorney. Mr. Semanoff was direct and honest with me right from the very first meeting that we had. I was kept informed of every progress and every delay in my case and always with a clear, detailed explanation in terms that I could understand. Aside from the time and attention that he dedicated to my case, he dedicated his time and attention to me on a personal level throughout the obstacles I faced emotionally and physically. Without doubt I can truely say that I consider Harold to be more than just my attorney. I have become to trust him as a friend as well. I feel privileged to have had him as my attorney.

Having known Harold for over 30 years as both a colleague and a friend, I can provide my unrestricted endorsement of both his competence and diligence. I never have any hesitation of referring matters directly to him or othes in his firm.

I strongly recommend Harold. . Harold is everything one expects in a "Philadephia Lawyer." He is very intelligent, thorough in his preparation for trial, a gentleman before Judge and Jury, and very learned in the law. Harold is a very powerful advocate for his clients.
