My office is available to fight all forms of employment discrimination including: race discrimination, sex discrimination, age discrimination, sexual harassment, racial harassment, or any hostile work environment for any individual or group of employees fired, terminated, discharged, not promoted or not hired or subjected to a hostile work environment.

Guiding Philosophy

Employees should be judged by their performance, not by the color of their skin, or by their sex or their age, or some other irrelevant characteristic ( such as national origin, religion, disability etc) . Nothing is so sacred or important as each individual's life and their right to their own life, their own liberty and happiness. Nothing has more value than the individual; the individual is more important than any group, club, association, nationality corporation or country. Fundamentally, what is of utmost importance is respect for the the individual's rights and without that philosophy, nothing else of value or merit is really possible.

Whenever an individual or a group of employees has been subjected to unfair treatment at the hands of a more powerful corporation or government agency, my law office is available to help you fight to defend your rights and your integrity.

Background

Mr. Lorence is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania and California (considered by many as the most difficult bar exam in the United States) representing employees exclusively in state and federal court.

Mr Lorence was a Woodrow Wilson Fellow in analytic philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania prior to taking his law degree at the Duquesne University School of Law. He was one of only 300 Woodrow Wilson Fellowship recipients from 10,000 finalists in the United States and Canada.

He is also a former Equal Employment Opportunity government investigator for a local government agency where he investigated hundreds of employment discrimination cases.

Mr. Lorence also had significant experience as a labor contract negotiator and labor organizer for a white-collar employees union.

Do You Or Does Your Group/ Class of Employees Have A Case?

If you have been discharged or terminated, or if you have lost a promotion, or not hired in the first place and you believe it is not because of your performance or qualifications, but because of your race, sex or age, than you may be a victim of and your career held back because of race discrimination, sex discrimination or age discrimination.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:
Comfort Level - Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?
Credentials - How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?
Cost - How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?
City - Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?
