A Focus on Results
Our Pennsylvania law firm focuses on employment discrimination, personal injury and business law.
Employment discrimination generally refers to any unfair treatment in the workplace that is based upon age, gender, race or color, national origin, religious beliefs, or disability. Other forms of illegal conduct include sexual harassment, pregnancy discrimination, retaliation, Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) violations, or Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations.
Specific deadlines, also known as Statutes of Limitations, apply for filing discrimination claims with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) and the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission (“PHRC”). Contact us today to discuss your claims.Read More
Individuals who suffer physical or mental injuries caused by another's negligence should be financially compensated. Personal injury claims are most commonly paid by insurance companies who have provided insurance.
If you have suffered an injury, treat with medical professionals and contact our law firm prior to settling anything with the insurance company. Don’t delay in contacting our attorneys. Strict deadlines, also known as Statutes of Limitations, are in place by which a claim must be initiated, or you may lose your ability to recover. Contact us today to discuss your claims.Read More

Attorney Gunther helped me with my discrimination case. He is extremely knowledgable and was able to negotiate a nice settlement. Thank you for taking our case.
This firm was accommodating. I work during the week but they were very flexible. I was able to speak to them during the evenings and was able to meet at their office on Saturday. Highly recommend!
Vipul me ayudó con mi caso. Me escuchó y fue muy respetuoso. Estaba muy nerviosa pero me explicó todo. Gracias otra vez.

The law protects US citizens and undocumented workers from discrimination based on race, national origin, gender, religion, age, or disability. Additionally, if an employer believes you may be undocumented, it may not ask you for more or different documents than from other employees or applicants. All workers have rights regardless of immigration status. This protection extends to organizing and participating in unions, minimum wage and overtime pay, health and safety regulations.
In areas such as employment discrimination and personal injury, you pay nothing, unless the lawyer wins. This is called a contingency fee arrangement, where the lawyer will take a percentage of the amount won. This allows individuals with limited income the ability to pursue a claim either against employers or insurance companies.
