Legal Blitz Co-Founder Earns Top Attorney Honors

It is with great pleasure and unabashed bragging that we congratulate Legal Blitz Co-Founder Steve Silver on being named to Billy Penn’s “Who’s Next in the Law” list. The media outlet recognized 18 Philadelphia lawyers under the age of 40 who are “making a difference in Philly’s legal community.”

Billy Penn called the honorees “movers and shakers in the law, and the people who were nominated as the next generation of legal professionals in this city.”

As to our own fearless leader, Billy Penn wrote, “A former reporter for the Las Vegas Sun, Steve is now a litigation associate at McBreen & Kopko where, in addition to premises liability cases, he also practices sports and gaming law and run a sports law blog called The Legal Blitz. His writing on sports and gaming law has been featured by the Huffington Post, Deadspin, Above the Law, the Philadelphia Business Journal, the Legal Intelligencer and the World Sports Law Report. This past year, he was successful in overturning a decision by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association barring a world-renowned Jamaican track star from competing in the Penn Relays, and he testified in front of the South Carolina Senate Higher Education Subcommittee in support of a bill to create post-graduate trust funds for NCAA student-athletes.”

Mazel Tov to Steve and remember that you can follow him on Twitter at @TheLegalBlitz and check out his work for Above The Law Redline and Deadspin on his Kinja site.
