Today we are one of the largest law firms in the region, with more than 40 attorneys, 20 paralegals, a dedicated support staff, and a growing, dynamic practice throughout Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and beyond. We are down-to-earth professionals who successfully combine the diverse disciplines and skills of a large firm with the accessibility and personalized manner of a small firm.

We provide earnest and attentive advocacy and counsel grounded in a comprehensive knowledge of the industries in which our clients operate. Our attorneys include title insurance agents, certified public accountants, and members of the bars of other jurisdictions. Our broad-based team approach enables us to leverage individual attorney strengths, assuring that clients benefit from our collective experience.

Our clients include a wide array of businesses, governmental entities, nonprofit institutions, insurance companies and financial institutions, as well as individuals and families. Whether you are the CEO of a large company or a young family developing an estate plan, we understand your needs and strive to fulfill them in a friendly, responsive and cost-effective manner.

Our attorneys have decades of experience and long-standing success in dealing with coverage and liability issues, third-party liability coverage, and uninsured/underinsured motorists matters. We have in-depth understanding of the unique challenges faced by the insurance industry. Our clients cover a wide array of insurance lines.

We are experienced in defending claims before administrative law judges, courts of common pleas, appellate courts, and federal court. We also provide representation in alternative dispute resolution forums such as arbitration and mediations.

Our attorneys focus on specific areas of litigation, giving them a distinct advantage in obtaining the best possible results for our clients. Areas of focus include medical malpractice, workers' compensation, automobile, and property and casualty as well as contract, business and intellectual property disputes.

Our workers' compensation attorneys work with a wide array of insurance companies, self-insured entities, and adjusting companies. We have experience in successfully handling all facets of the workers’ compensation claims process. Our group provides defense of workers’ compensation claims and petitions, representation in coverage disputes, and pre-injury and post-injury counseling for the insurance industry and its insureds. We also offer education and training for insurance adjusters and claims handlers, as well as assistance in the preparation of forms and policy manuals regarding workers' compensation claims.

We also represent insurance companies from a business perspective. Our work for insurers includes mergers and acquisitions and the development of risk pooling contracts.
