CEDRONE & MANCANO, LLC

ATTORNEYS AT LAW

A litigation boutique dedicated to representing clients in criminal, civil, and administrative controversies.

Cedrone & Mancano, LLC was formed by two prominent Philadelphia trial lawyers to represent clients in criminal and civil litigation both regionally and nationally.  Both Mark E. Cedrone and Joseph D. Mancano bring skills honed over decades of experience to resolve their clients’ most challenging legal problems. 

We are exceptional advocates respected by clients, peers, and adversaries and ranked among the best lawyers in local and national publications.  Although we are experienced trial lawyers, we are equally adept at negotiating non-trial dispositions when doing so serves our clients’ best interests.

Clients come to us to resolve their most daunting legal challenges.  We have represented a wide range of individual and institutional clients including corporate executives and business owners, multi-national corporations, pharmaceutical companies, banks, manufacturing firms, universities, physicians, lawyers, accountants, securities brokers, public and union officials, and government contractors.  Often our clients have matters where civil litigation intersects with criminal investigations and regulatory compliance issues.  Our skills and experience enable us to successfully manage the challenges faced by clients who are simultaneously facing legal challenges on multiple fronts.

 Our firm is committed to a standard of excellence in the service of our clients.  We consistently apply our exceptional judgment, skill, and experience to achieve the best results for our clients.

OUR TEAM

Our team possesses the education and experience necessary to understand each client’s legal, professional, and business concerns.  Our professionals include:  a former Assistant United States Attorney; a former law clerk for the United States Tax Court, who holds a degree in and has taught college level accounting; and a former law review editor.  Over a combined 70 years of practice, we have successfully represented clients in a wide array of investigations and audits, at trials and post-trial proceedings, and through multiple regulatory processes. 

 

PRACTICE AREAS

Cedrone & Mancano’s broad-based practice encompasses four core areas:  sophisticated criminal defense; tax litigation and controversy; complex commercial litigation; and regulatory enforcement.  We recognize that in many instances clients face issues where practice areas intersect, and we pride ourselves on being able to navigate multi-disciplinary problems/issues.

 

NOTABLE CASES

We recognize that results count. Here you can view a sample of matters in which we have successfully represented clients. Many of our most successful representations, however, occur “behind the scenes” or outside the “public record.”  Because we value our clients’ privacy and are professionally obliged to protect confidential client information, we cannot report on some of our most significant successes. 

 

THE FOUNDERS

We believe clients should know more about their lawyers than simply their professional experience.  The founders of Cedrone & Mancano are not only exceptional lawyers with complementary skills and experience but are good friends – friends with similar backgrounds who share professional and personal values.  Here, you can learn more about our personal backgrounds, life philosophies, and the history of our personal and professional relationship.
