Mr. Campolongo is devoted to representing individual plaintiffs and small businesses in employment rights litigation, including discrimination claims based on:
Navigating the field of employment law can often be difficult and confusing. The Law Office of Jeffrey Campolongo is prepared to offer clients assistance in meeting and exceeding the cumbersome administrative and procedural requirements for pursuing an employment discrimination claim with the the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission, the Philadelphia Commission on Human Relations, and the New Jersey Division on Civil Rights.
By law, an aggrieved employee has an extremely narrow window of opportunity for which to make the necessary administrative filings at the appropriate state or federal agency. The earlier an aggrieved employee contacts a knowledgeable employment attorney, the better chance he or she will have in presenting a claim in the appropriate forum.

Individual employees who have suffered a work-related injury may have a claim for workers’ compensation benefits under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. The workers’ compensation system was designed with the humanitarian purpose of protecting the interests of injured workers. Through legislative changes and court interpretation, the once favorable law has shifted significantly in favor of employers and the insurance carriers.
It is crucial that injured workers seek legal assistance from a knowledgeable, experienced practitioner to preserve important rights, which may otherwise be trampled upon by the likes of big insurance companies. Mr. Campolongo is prepared to spend the time necessary with clients to ensure that all aspects of their employment situation are protected and vigorously defended.

The entertainment law practice of the Law Office of Jeffrey Campolongo is devoted to representing aspiring and established entertainers in the media and entertainment industry. While, the first and foremost function of an entertainment lawyer is to protect the client in a traditional legal setting, true entertainment lawyers also may act as promoters, managers, agents, marketers and counselors for a specific client, depending upon the client's particular circumstances and needs. Intellectual property law, including copyright, trademark and celebrity endorsements, licensing and merchandising in the entertainment industry involves, among other things, assisting clients in the selection, searching and registration of trademarks and service marks, both within the United States and abroad. Entertainment law, like employment law, often involves an existing relationship or agreement for hire where an individual with a skill is performing a service, for a fee, for someone who needs that individual’s services. A lawyer with a thorough understanding of the inter-personal issues inherent in a working relationship is crucial to negotiating a lucrative entertainment contract.
