Once again, Sidney L. Gold has been named Lawyer of the Year for 2017 by the Philly Happening List. The Happening List is Philadelphia’s go-to digital magazine covering what’s “happening” in Center City Philadelphia. Voters are citizens in the community who select the “people’s choice” in categories that include people, places, businesses, and events.
Sidney L. Gold, founder of Sidney L. Gold Associates P.C., a renowned law firm in the fields of employment law and civil rights litigation, serves clients in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.
