Chartwell Law Continues Its Growth in Pennsylvania

Chartwell Law continues its growth with the addition of three new attorneys to the firm’s Philadelphia, PA office. The new attorneys are partners Hema P. Mehta and Susan J. French, and associate Hien T. Pham.  All bring significant experience to Chartwell’s growing insurance coverage and property practices.  The trio join Chartwell from the Philadelphia-based Fineman Krekstein & Harris, P.C.

The addition of these attorneys brings the total number of new attorneys who joined Chartwell in 2019 to 33 and brings the total number of attorneys to 153.  This year, the firm was recognized by the National Law Journal as one of the fastest growing firms in the U.S and was added to the list of the fastest growing firms in Florida.  Much of the firm’s recent growth has been in the insurance coverage and property practices.  

“We are excited that Hema, Susan and Hien joined the firm,” said Michael J. Diamond, one of the Chartwell’s founding partners. “Their practices complement our existing insurance defense, coverage and property practices.  They are also part of our strategic plan to further expand our key practices areas, including first and third party property litigation, all along the East Coast and beyond”.

Mehta, French and Pham are insurance defense litigators with deep experience in handling matters involving insurance coverage, bad faith, general liability, as well as property and casualty claims.  “I as well as my team, have developed a reputation for serving our clients’ needs and delivering results. We chose Chartwell, first and foremost, because of its people, diversity and culture.  We were impressed with the firm’s tradition of empowering attorneys to thrive, and the firm’s commitment to providing top-flight service to its clients.  Chartwell’s vision, strength and platform enable us to expand to meet our clients’ requests for a more national reach” said Mehta.
