Although many businesses have been affected by the Order of the Governor in response to the Covid-19 virus the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation system remains open and available to help those injured at work.

We also possess the technology to support remote work efforts and we want to reassure you that we remain fully operational and responsive to all of your legal needs.

In light of the Covid-19 Pandemic our firm has decided to WAIVE ALL WEEKLY ATTORNEY FEES for every new Workers’ Compensation client for the rest of 2020.  We want to do our part to give back to the community.  We will continue to reduce our fees on ALL lump sum settlement as well.

Stay healthy.  If you need answers or help, please call us, reach out to us though this web site or email us directly at: [email protected], [email protected], [email protected], [email protected]
