"A man came to me for help saying no one would believe him. I believed him and so did the jury."
Jimmy Albert has always loved to fight for the underdog.
"My grandmother taught me the meaning of hard work and being a voice for people who cannot speak up for themselves. She worked in the Empire State Building in the 1940's as a cleaning matron. She held a supervisor position because she could speak both English and Polish and helped bridge the gap between management and immigrant workers. She walked and took the subway from Brooklyn into Manhattan every night at midnight and still was able to raise a family with my grandfather who worked in the Brooklyn Navy Yards during WWII. When I represent injured people I think of her work ethic and am inspired by her courage."
While in law school in Harrisburg, Jim became interested in the state legislature and worked for the legal department of the Pennsylvania Rural Electric Association. "I was happy to work for an organization that was designed to protect rural Pennsylvanians from being taken advantage of by big corporations."
After graduating from Penn State University and Widener University School of Law, he came back home to Pittston and began his legal career with Cefalo and Associates. He went to work for other firms but never forgot where he came from.
"I represented doctors, corporations, and hospitals but I've never enjoyed working anywhere as much as I did working here and representing injured people."
It was that love of giving the underdog a voice that compelled him to return to Cefalo and Associates.
Smart, focused, a people person, and a love for the underdog - that's Jimmy Albert.
Jim currently resides in Pittston with his wife, Samantha, who is a professional engineer and their two young boys, Jack and William.
