A. Roy DeCaro has tried more than 200 jury trials to verdict during his legal career, first as a prosecutor and now as a civil attorney. He has achieved on behalf of his clients over a dozen verdicts in excess of $1,000,000.00, and two verdicts in excess of $10,000,000.00. So, it is little surprise that Best Lawyers recognized Mr. DeCaro in 2018 as the “Best Personal Injury Lawyer of the Year” for Philadelphia.

As a prosecutor, he persuaded juries to convict murderers, drug dealers, motorcycle gang members, organized crime figures, corrupt police officers and corrupt public officials. As a civil trial lawyer, Roy has represented those who have been seriously injured or killed by others’ negligence, including those injured due to medical error, unsafe products, and negligent drivers.

Roy has consistently been named a “Super Lawyer” in Philadelphia Magazine, and has been ranked as one of the top 10 lawyers in Pennsylvania on two occasions. He was named by “Lawdragon” Magazine as one of the 500 best lawyers in the United States. Roy has regularly been selected by his peers for inclusion in “Best Lawyers in America.”

He is often asked to mediate and arbitrate cases by plaintiff and defense lawyers. He has been called upon to serve on several Blue Ribbon Panels including panels to recommend institutional changes in the Philadelphia Police Department and the Philadelphia Criminal Court System. He is an adjunct Law Professor at Villanova Law School teaching Evidence.

Roy is a member of the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Board of Trial Advocates. He is president of the Philadelphia Lawyers Club – an “organization that aids lawyers in distress and promotes civility.”
