Mr. Badey concentrates his practice almost exclusively on personal injury litigation, including products liability, workers' compensation, and general personal injury matters, including serious auto accidents.

Since he began practicing in 1982, Mr. Badey has achieved, through jury verdicts and settlements, more than 100 six-figure recoveries, and numerous seven- figure recoveries, including over a dozen jury trials resulting in a recovery of a million dollars or more.  See our successes page.

We’re not a ‘factory firm’ – by that I mean, we’re not a legal ‘mill’ cranking clients through the system like they’re widgets. When our firm decides to represent you, you’ll meet directly with your attorney from day one – some clients don’t even know who their attorney is until they get into court! Every case is important to us – and we know how important your case is to you – at Badey, Sloan & DiGenova, you’ll feel that. I promise.

In addition to his active trial practice, Mr. Badey has appeared as lead counsel and argued in numerous appellate forums, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Philadelphia, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit in Washington, D.C. He is also admitted to the Bar of the Supreme Court and has submitted two cases to the highest court of the United States. He has served as lead counsel and argued several cases before the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and many more cases before the Superior and Commonwealth Courts of Pennsylvania.

In December 2007, Mr. Badey won a critically important decision in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court against the tobacco industry.

  • “Supreme Court cases are exciting, and you have the opportunity, through establishing new precedents, to change the law for the better moving forward. We’ve done this successfully in litigation:
    • Against the tobacco industry;
    • Establishing the rules about how juries are handled in civil cases; and, most recently, we did a pro bono case for a nurse that swept away 25 years of precedent that held nurses to a different – and we maintained, unfair – standard when it came to unemployment benefits.”

He has been selected to serve as a Judge Pro-Tem in the Court of Common Pleas of Philadelphia, a position that requires more than 15 years of active litigation experience, and has also served as a lecturer and author in continuing legal education programs. He has appeared as a special presenter and lecturer in law on "Managing the Complex Civil Case" for judges at the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. Based on confidential evaluations submitted by attorneys and judges, Mr. Badey has received the rating of "AV" (the highest available) from the publishers of the Martindale-Hubbell Legal Directory, indicating a legal ability of "very high to preeminent.”

Mr. Badey played an active role in the 2000 Presidential election litigation. Read more on our news page.

Born and raised in South Philadelphia, Mr. Badey was the valedictorian of his class at South Philadelphia High School in 1975 and remains active in regional politics.
