Logan & Logan is a "boutique" firm --- we concentrate exclusively on Employment Law --- this is all we do.

Our more senior partner, James Logan, argued and prevailed in an age discrimination case at the U.S. Supreme Court (Harbison-Walker Refractories v. Brieck) (see "Attorneys" section) --- it is very rare for any attorney to have argued and prevailed at such a high level, in such an important case.

James Logan has been a leader in the organized bar, including service as Chair of the Labor and Employment Law Section of the Allegheny County Bar Association.

We are a husband and wife duo, with a combined 50\+ years in the private practice of law, nearly all of such years concentrating in individual employment rights litigation.

One of our cases, Novosel v. Nationwide Insurance Company, was widely regarded as a landmark case, which pushed the envelope of employment law. (see "Attorneys" section).

We are one of the few firms in our region with the sophistication, background and experience to handle cases on both sides of the fence: approximately 70% of our practice involves representation of employees in disputes with their employers, and about 25% involves representation of small businesses in disputes with their employees.

The other 5% of our practice is spent as mediators or arbitrators, selected by our peers as professionals with the necessary experience and street smarts to resolve and/or decide complicated issues of fact and law in this very complex area of practice, one which has serious consequences for employee and employer alike. We founded Employment Law Mediation Services, which since 1996 has provided mediation services for attorneys and litigants in complicated federal court employment cases, assisting the parties in resolving their differences amicably and in bringing an end to costly, time-consuming litigation.

Our attorneys were founding members of the Western Pennsylvania chapter of the Plaintiff Employment Lawyers Association, and one of our attorneys was the Vice-President of PELA for the first 10 years of its existence (such organization is now known as the "National Employment Lawyers Association", or NELA).

We also enjoy a wide network of associations with professionals and experts in fields necessary for us to provide the wide range of services provided by much larger law firms.

Places in which we have practiced and in which we customarily practice:

Federal court --- U.S. District Court, Third Circuit Court of Appeals, U.S. Supreme Court
Pennsylvania state courts (all levels: County Courts of Common Pleas, Commonwealth Court, Superior Court, Supreme Court)
Administrative agencies: EEOC, PHRC, Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations; Unemployment Compensation Board of Review
Arbitration hearings
Mediations
Internal company appeal and grievance procedures

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?
