I have built my firm and reputation on the belief that every case deserves my fullest attention. I understand that for many of my clients, they may need legal advice once in their life.  When that happens, my clients need the best from me and that’s what I promise to deliver. 

I have lived in the Philadelphia area my whole life.  Any client considering my firm will likely learn about my reputation for competence and compassion by surveying the community.  I have a strong work ethic which I combine with a very practical approach to the law. 

When I am not thinking about your case, I am spending time with my wife and three daughters. And, when they are ignoring me I can usually be found annoying my friends on the golf course.  But I’m always on and always available to handle a case.

For employment law support Chuck Curley is amazing
I left a company and that company then sued me. Being sued was shocking and very scary for me and my family. Chuck was recommended by another attorney friend for his expertise in Employment Law. Chuck's insight into employment law is amazing. He has a great ability to understand the opposing counsel's behaviors and respond appropriately. He was trust worthy and worked hard to understand the situation and bring it to resolution. He was not interested in building up billable hours without reason. Chuck always kept us informed and got the issue resolved. I would recommend him over and over again.

Small business owner vs large fortune 100 company
Chuck helped us navigate a very difficult case against a very large corporation. We managed to successfully resolve the matter due to Chuck's council. He was always responsive and always gave great advice! Dennis

A tremendous resource
As a commissioned employee I engaged Chuck to help me recover commissions earned from a real estate broker. It was a long and arduous process but Chuck kept focus on doing what was in my best interest, not his. Our efforts were successful. A few years later I was again in need of a labor attorney and went right to Chuck. He won a judgement for me against a former employer who was represented by one of the larger law firms in the city. His honest assessment of my concerns and expectations were very helpful in both cases. In the end of each, his guidance proved to be spot-on.

I am a lawyer, but I dont handle employment/labor issues. I have been referring all matters to Chuck for a decade. Clients are always satisfied with his aggressive, compassionate and experienced representation.

Thankful client
Chuck worked on a legal matter for me and was successful in negotiating a favorable settlement and even more favorable terms in which I was able to move forward with my life in a most desired path. Chuck was a true professional from the first meeting with him and all the way through to the conclusion of his services rendered. I have been represented in the past by attorneys that frequently seemed too busy or distant to provide the reassurances of clear understanding in all aspects of the case that clients like me get anxious about. This was never the case with Chuck, as he provided patient insight in a timely manner on a regular basis whenever requested. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a client oriented professional for honest legal council. I am thankful to the friend that recommended him.

Down to Earth
When I first called Chuck about my case (a contract dispute with a former employer), he got back to right away. We discussed my case and he immediately knew what steps to take to move forward. When we met to go over all the details, he made me feel that what I was doing was the right thing and had a plan to get results. At the day of my hearing, Chuck was there and was very relaxed and confident. It showed in the courtroom; Chuck's personality and demeanor while presenting my case, made me more at ease. Thanks to Chuck, we were successful and I am back to work.

Outstanding representation and result
From our initial meeting until the end of the case, Chuck Curley provided exceptional legal representation for a complex employment compensation case. He was always responsive, on target with his analysis and assessment of the case, and realistic in setting my expectations for all phases of the litigation process. His level of professionalism and preparation, including his attention to detail and laser focus on relevant facts of the case, were the key factors in a successful outcome. Also, his legal staff was equally responsive in researching the applicable employment case law that was far more salient to the facts of the case. Chuck is an excellent employment law attorney with a great staff. I highly recommend Chuck Curley and his firm with no hesitation.

Fantastic Law Firm
I have been working with Chuck for ten years now. I simply wouldn't go any where else. I trust him. He has always solved the legal problems for my businesses and not once did I feel that he didn't have my best interest in mind. I have never hesitated to contact him as i know that I'll be treated fairly each and every time. I highly recommend his practice.

Outstanding Lawyer & Firm
Curley & Rothman is an outstanding and knowledgeable legal firm. We have used Chuck and his team for over nine years for our business employment, contractual and intellectual property law. Our business requires a multitude of legal needs that requires a variety of expertise, experience and knowledge. Curley & Rothman has always been able to handle a broad range of legal transactions for us. Chuck recently handled a case and successfully got it settled resulting in us being able to return to a focus on our business instead of the litigation process. All members of our executive team work with Chuck on a regular basis, and all highly recommend Chuck and Curley & Rothman.

I highly reccomend Chuck Curley
Chuck and his Team have worked very hard on an Employment Severence case with my old employer. I appreciate their dilegence, persistance and their proactive communication with me as this case has progressed. This is not a huge case but I have always felt like they have treated the case and myself as if it was much larger.

Warranty Issue resolved with the able assistance of Charles Curley
Chuck was recommended by one of my attorneys as someone I could rely on to take charge and gather the information he needed to proceed with my case. The issue involved a warranty of an outside deck material that was defective and instead of participating in a Class Action Suit that would provide very little financial relief Chuck felt confident that we had enough evidence that we could bring this to court. That said, though, Chuck did all he could to try and avoid a court hearing (expensive and MY money) to pursue an action for settlement prior to the court date; a settlement that would be satisfactory to me, which it was. The Manufacturer's Class Action suit would have resulted in a sum that would not even cover legal costs much less materials and labor to replace the deck. With Chuck's guidance and perseverance we were able to negotiate with the interested parties and come up with a settlement that was 10x' the Class Action amount and covered most of the replacement costs for a new deck. I would recommend Chuck for anyone who is looking for fair, honest and aggressive legal council who will work diligently for you...and keep a sharp eye on legal costs at the same time!

General contract reviews
I highly recommend Chuck and the rest of the Halberstadt Curley firm. Have worked with Chuck over the past five years or so and he handles general contract review and drafting for my firm. Chuck has been very easy to work with back and forth on the contracts in making small changes that we needed for our industry. I felt extremely confident that, if we ever needed to utilize our contracts, we'd have no problems and everything was buttoned up as it should be.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse this lawyer. Chuck Curley is a responsive, efficient lawyer who "gets it." He understands not only the law, but how it impacts his clients and their business needs. He fights when he needs to fight, but he will not lose sight of the objective when representing a client. He is therefore an effective advocate, but also a practical problem-solver. He is a lawyer to whom I refer clients because they will not be disappointed, knowing that they got quality representation and solid advice, and that Chuck understood the client's needs and their business objectives."
