You Get A Great Team for Your PA Personal Injury or Criminal Claim

In addition to our lawyers, our team includes a dedicated case manager, three paralegals, a finance manager, and a dedicated customer relations manager, Lisa Gindy, who is often the first pleasant voice you hear when you call us and the first friendly face you see when you visit us. Our case manager, Mark Harrington, has more than 25 years of experience in the insurance industry. This unique experience helps us to level the playing field against big insurance companies. (For more about what we call the “modern-day Goliath,” see pages 3-14 in our free book: The Ultimate Guide to Car Accident Cases in Pennsylvania.) Our paralegals Kim Ball and Elaine Valentine, not only have years of experience with accident, criminal, and DUI cases, but they also are excellent listeners and communicators. That’s because, like us, they understand that this may be your first encounter with our justice system. (For more information about our approach to case preparation, see our video library.) Together, our team is on your side and will work hard to make you feel that way throughout your case. We cannot be everything to everyone. We limit the number of cases we accept because case preparation and real communication with you requires time. Fewer cases means more time for clients. Fewer clients means more time to meet, listen, and explain. Our job isn’t to tell you what you want to hear. We tell you how it really is. As a result, we’re not a good fit for everyone. If we’re not a good fit for you, we’ll tell you – and we’ll help you find another lawyer.

Let’s Get Started Today

If you think you and your accident, medical error, criminal case, or DUI case are a good fit for us, call now. We’d like to help. If you are not sure, see what our clients say, read about our case results, read our books, get our newsletter, and take a look at the free information we provide here. Then call for a free consultation. We’ll tell you how we can help.
