He has achieved notable success defending the rights and liberties of those throughout the greater Philadelphia metro area and all of southeast Pennsylvania who stand accused or are under investigation for federal crimes, drug crimes, sex crimes and other serious criminal offenses.

Mr. Gelb began his legal career as an associate and then partner with his mother's law firm, where he gained invaluable trial experience and served as lead or co-counsel on a number of high-profile cases that helped set precedents. This included one landmark case that helped set a new precedent regarding effective assistance of counsel and conflicts of interest in legal representation.

He then branched out and started his own law firm more than 20 years ago, and since that time, he has proven himself a dedicated and highly effective advocate for the accused in both state and federal courts throughout his region. Moreover, Mr. Gelb has represented numerous clients in grand jury investigations, as well as those who pleaded guilty or received sentences for their crimes.

A 1976 cum laude graduate of Harvard University, Mr. Gelb obtained his Juris Doctor from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law in 1980, where he served as research editor for the Hastings Law Journal. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court.
