A Jordan Rushie

About me

Jordan Rushie moved to Philadelphia in 2007. His office and his home are in the Fishtown area. His practice is focused on civil litigation, with an emphasis on First Amendment, libel / slander, and Philadelphia zoning. 


 


Jordan has represented civic associations such as East Kensington Neighbors Association and Northern Liberties Neighbors Association. He gives lectures such as "Zoning 101" for civic associations and real estate developers. 


 


In 2014, Jordan testified before the Pennsylvania State Judiciary Committee, urging the state to adopt anti-SLAPP (strategic lawsuits against public participation) legislation, which would protect both ordinary citizens and civic associations from frivolous lawsuits. 


 


In 2015, Jordan testified before the Philadelphia City Planning Commission, uging them to accept sensible changes to Fishtown's Zoning Map. 


 


Jordan is the author of Philly Law Blog, which focuses on intellectual property, First Amendment, Philadelphia zoning, and other areas. His blog has been rated by the American Bar Association as a top 100 in the country. 


 


In his spare time, Jordan enjoys the outdoors, camping, reading about military tactics, and firearms.

  • Timothy Andrew Lesinski

    Jordan was my opposing counsel approximately three years ago, a multi-party case with complicated legal and factual issues. Jordan's skills and professionalism in handling the matter were impressive, not just for a fellow young lawyer, but compared to the other highly respected veteran litigators involved in the case. Since then, Jordan has continued to prove that he is an excellent attorney. He has exceptional knowledge of the law, proven litigation skills, and unyielding tenacity. The best compliment you can give an attorney is to refer him business. I have, and will continue to refer my clients, family and friends to Jordan.
