Workers' Compensation

No matter what step you are in the workers compensation process, we can help you.
Attorney Wayne Hippo draws on over 17 years of experience as a defense attorney for some of Pennsylvania's largest insurance companies to now focus primarily on helping injured workers understand their rights and helping them receive the benefits they deserve.

Social Security Disability

The Social Security Disability Programs and the accompanying forms, procedures, and responsibilities are complex and can be confusing. Our social security attorneys understand that every case is unique. It is our priority to work closely with our clients through every step of the process.

Civil Litigation

Our firm is committed to resolving our clients' disputes, if at all possible, without court intervention. However, our attorneys have a vast amount of trial experience in both State and Federal Courts, and have handled civil litigation matters in the areas of automobile liability, premises liability, products liability and toxic torts, contractual and property disputes, and environmental litigation.

Mediation / Arbitration Services

We recommend that opposing parties seriously consider resolving their disputes in a manner which avoids having to engage in costly and time-consuming litigation. Our attorneys serve as independent arbiters or mediators of disputes, in a forum agreed upon between the parties, including binding and non-binding mediation, arbitration, mini-trials, and settlement conferences.

Insurance Law

Whether our client is an insurance company needing a coverage opinion, or a policyholder in need of assistance in interpreting a policy or asserting a claim, we provide legal advice and assistance.

Real Estate

Our experienced lawyers assist and represent clients in all phases of residential and commercial real estate transactions, including negotiations, execution of agreements for sale, and closings. We are also happy to help those who are in need of for sale by owner agreements or private sales of homes or property.

Employment Law

Our firm provides advice and representation to both employers and employees in all employment-related areas, including the Americans with Disabilities Act, Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), PA Workers' Compensation Act, Social Security disability law, workplace discrimination and sexual harassment, severance issues, employment contracts, restrictive covenants, non compete agreements and employee handbooks.

Business Planning, Management, and Succession

It can be quite overwhelming starting a business due to the many complex decisions that an owner must make, beginning with the type of entity. We counsel business owners on establishing their business, managing their operations, and insuring the transfer of their business to future generations of family or key employees.

Business owners and managers may have a tough time navigating through today's ever-changing legal landscape. As businesses expand and grow, owners' responsibilities and obligations change and grow as well. We offer support and training for our business clients as they face new challenges and opportunities to help them succeed.

Annual Meetings

Although some companies just go through the motions, an annual corporate meeting is a great way to sit down together away from the office and perform a check-up of their company's structure, operation, and well-being.

Our firm hosts annual meetings, and assists businesses in updating and maintaining corporate records.
