  • Howard M. Louik

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Art is a very insightful attorney and zealous advocate. He brings a unique perspective to plaintiff's medical malpractice work as a former defense attorney. If he accepts a case, its likely to have both merit and high degree of a successful outcome.

  • Jerry I. Meyers

    I endorse this lawyer's work. I have known him for many years. Initially he was my worthy opposition. He represented hospitals and physicians I sued. He was then very professional in his conduct of his defense, and appropriately compassionate with my clients when circumstances warranted. He then left the defense side of the business to become a partner with a well respected Medical malpractice lawyer in Pittsburgh, John Caputo. After representing victims of malpractice in the Caputo firm for 8 years or so, he became a member of my firm. Since, he has continued the tradition of excellence for which he has become known in our community. His curiosity and fondness of medicine and his zeal and persistence represent valuable assets to our clients.
