(Media, PA) — On April 25, 2007, The Philadelphia Bar lost a valued practitioner, Daniel T. McWilliams. In his more than 30 years of legal practice, Mr. McWilliams tried countless matters to verdict in virtually every area of civil law. In addition to his distinguished practice, Mr. McWilliams advanced the interests of justice by serving as an arbitrator and a Judge Pro Tem in the Philadelphia County Court of Common Pleas. His passing was mourned by the legal community in which he practiced.
Mr. McWilliams’s passing was also personal to Gibley and McWilliams. In addition to being the father of founding partner Kelly McWilliams, he had been Of Counsel to the Firm since its formation. During those years, he helped the Firm’s attorneys with trial preparation and strategy evaluation. An invaluable resource available to the Firm, Mr. McWilliams’ extensive experience prepared Gibley and McWilliams’ attorneys for every expectation and contingency at trial. Kelly McWilliams and Joe Gibley are pleased to be able to impart the late Mr. McWilliams’ wisdom and experience to the next generation of Gibley and McWilliams trial lawyers.
