Joseph Anthony "Uncle Joe" Ligambi (born August 9, 1939) is an American mobster and current boss of the Philadelphia crime family. Ligambi is known among law enforcement circles to have a more "old school" approach, in sharp contrast to the former boss, Joseph Merlino's, flamboyant, high-profile style. Ligambi is credited by the Philadelphia Police Department's Criminal Intelligence Unit to be "quietly bringing stability back to the troubled Philadelphia-South Jersey branch of La Cosa Nostra." Ligambi had a no-show job with Top Job carting run by fellow Philadelphia crime family member, Mauro Goffredo.
