to the Law Office of Isaac F. Slepner

I’m Isaac F. Slepner, a solo attorney based in Fishtown, one of Philadelphia’s most vibrant and fastest-growing neighborhoods. With new businesses always opening and property constantly changing hands, Philadelphia is an exciting place to live and work. But learning the ropes can be challenging, especially in its many tight-knit neighborhoods, each with its own unique history, culture, and way of doing business.

Let me show you the ropes. I’ve been practicing law in Philadelphia since my admission to the bar in 2007. As an attorney and as an active member of a wide range of community organizations, I know this city inside and out.

Based in the Fishtown Business Area, the hub of Philadelphia’s rapidly expanding business community, I assist developers, landlords, tenants, employers, businesses, and individuals with their legal needs, with reasonable rates and neighborly service.
