About Locks Law Firm

The Locks Law Firm is a nationally renowned team of personal injury lawyers committed to defending the rights of injured victims and ensuring that they are justly compensated for their losses. Though the Locks Law Firm focuses upon mass tort litigation, but its team of experienced attorneys has expertise in a variety of personal injury fields.

Founded by Gene Locks, the firm first distinguished itself as a leader in the development of strategies for asbestos litigation, successfully representing thousands of workplace exposure victims. Today our lawyers in Philadelphia, New York, and New Jersey are nationally and internationally prominent in numerous fields and are frequently successful in dangerous pharmaceutical, complex personal injury, and consumer class-action litigation.

At Locks Law Firm, our experienced lawyers are committed to protecting the rights of individuals and families who have suffered as a result of the negligent or reckless conduct of another. The goal of our personal injury lawyers is to promote the development of a safer society by seeking jury verdicts that take the profit out of negligent conduct and the manufacture of defective products.
