Firm Overview

Best Employment Laywers 2018 We are a Downtown Pittsburgh law firm concentrating in employment law and employee rights. Our Pittsburgh employment lawyers and employee rights advocates represent professionals, unions, and workers in employment, labor, and employee benefits matters. Because we are dedicated to employee rights, we do not represent businesses or employers.

We are recognized in the Pittsburgh legal community for our skill and tenacity. One federal court judge recently observed that our lawyers “more than held their own against some of the most experienced lawyers the local United States Attorney’s Office has to offer” and against lawyers from the D.C. Department of Justice “at the top of their profession,” while “navigating a plethora of twists and turns of highly sophisticated legal issues….”

Attorney John Stember, our managing partner, has represented employees and unions in Western Pennsylvania for more than 35 years. Attorney Jonathan Cohn has concentrated on employee rights since moving to Pittsburgh in 2004. Attorney Maureen Davidson-Welling has more than a decade of experience in employment law.
