Other practice areas include family law, sex, age and pregnancy discrimination in the workforce as well as sexual harassment cases. Years of experience have taught Mr. Adamczyk how to evaluate such cases where the defendant employers are sophisticated and adept at hiding their true illegal motivation for terminating an employee.
As an avid bicyclist, Mr. Adamczyk knows first- hand the rules of the road for both cyclists and vehicles and knows how vehicles disobeying these laws cause accidents. Because of this, Mr. Adamczyk is a Pittsburgh lawyer with a unique perspective and passion for representing those severely injured in such a fashion. Mr. Adamczyk has successfully tried and settled numerous catastrophic and severe injury cases, including those most difficult cases involving a death of a family member.
Mr. Adamczyk’s practice is made up largely of referrals from other lawyers and the firm’s past clients, who have recommended friends and family members based on their experiences and results through the firm. He is known for taking on the difficult case where other attorneys refuse to go. See “Success where other attorneys fail” section.
