Meet Our Attorneys

When searching for a lawyer, look for one who is:

  • Experienced
  • Recognized for excellence
  • Accessible

Our Pennsylvania clients find that our attorneys are all these things. When it comes to experience, our attorneys offer an unmatched level of trial and negotiation experience; collectively, we have been in practice for nearly 100 years. This experience has allowed us to excel in developing successful trial strategies and negotiation tactics as well as familiarity with judges and court personnel.

We are proud to take on big organizations on behalf of our clients, and this includes some of the largest hospital systems and companies in southwestern Pennsylvania. Whether the matter can be resolved through negotiation or we have to represent you in trial, we have the experience necessary to provide aggressive, effective legal guidance no matter the size or complexity of the issue you are facing.

When injury claims are involved, experience from both sides of a case matters. Most of our attorneys worked as lawyers for insurance companies before dedicating their practice exclusively to plaintiffs' claims. This experience has given us invaluable knowledge – knowledge that most lawyers do not have - about what goes into both sides of an injury claim.

When it comes to success, our attorneys set the standard: We have been named to the list of Pennsylvania Super Lawyers year after year, we are peer review rated either AV Preeminent or BV Distinguished* by Martindale-Hubbell, and we have been listed with the Best Lawyers in America. We are members of the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers as well as the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.

Finally, our attorneys believe it is essential to be accessible when our clients need them. Our firm takes pride in returning phone calls and emails promptly, and making time to meet with clients when they have questions about their cases.

A Family On Your Side

With more than a century of collective legal experience, our attorneys go much deeper than the typical working relationships. Laura and Denny are father and daughter. Kathleen has worked with the firm for over 30 years and is considered one of the family. With such a close-knit family working on your behalf, you will feel as if the whole team is working for you.
