About Joseph

Learn Joseph’s areas of practice.

Practice areas
  1. Car accident
    Car crashes are most often caused simply when someone's been careless. Determining legal responsibility for an accident or injury (often called “liability”) can be complicated, but often rests on whether someone was careless or “negligent.”

  2. Personal injury
    Stanley Law Offices are dedicated to helping the victims of personal injury and their families. Our team of trial lawyers has 90 years combined experience, which we use to develop strategies that win in the courtroom helping you get what you deserve.

  3. Slip and fall accident
    At Stanley Law Offices, you’ll find a well-experienced premises liability lawyer who handles a full range of legal matters, focusing on holding people responsible for personal injuries that occur on others’ property.

  4. Workers compensation
    At The Stanley Law Offices, our workers’ compensation lawyers in Montrose, PA, and Syracuse, Binghamton, or Rochester, NY, are dedicated to helping our clients get the compensation they are entitled to after a workplace injury.

  5. Animal and dog bites
    Like any personal injury case, there are many variables that go into determining whether or not you have a case you can WIN. In the case of animal or dog bite, much will be dependent on the animal’s history.

  6. Birth injury
    Lawyers who regularly represent children & parents know that special attention must be paid to helping you recover enough compensation to help pay for the care they need. When injuries happen to young children, they can have long-term effects.

  7. Brain injury
    Our attorneys are experienced in the steps and strategies that are necessary to obtain a favorable settlement or verdict for a client who’s suffered a brain injury or spinal cord injury. We work with expert neuropsychologists to build a case.

  8. Defective and dangerous products
    Dangerous or defective products can cause very serious injuries and wrongful death. If you’ve been injured by such a product, you need an attorney who will hold manufacturers and distributors accountable and get you the compensation you deserve.

  9. Medical malpractice
    Medical negligence cases often involve complex issues of fact and law. Therefore, if you believe that you or a loved one has been injured due to medical malpractice, the best approach is to work with an experienced medical malpractice attorney.

  10. Motorcycle accident
    A motorcycle accident lawyer can assist motorcyclists and their families if an accident occurs. Motorcycle riders have the same legal rights as other motor vehicle drivers to use the road.

  11. Nursing home abuse and neglect
    It’s a part of all of our lives. It’s a difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home when you realize a family member can no longer live on their own. Making that decision is tough enough. Don't go it alone. Phone.

  12. Social Security & Disability
    Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are federal programs that provide monthly benefits to those who suffer from a disabling medical condition that prevents them from working on a full time basis.

  13. Spinal cord injury
    Initial consultations at The Stanley Law Offices are free. Our lawyers willingly make home or hospital visits if needed. At The Stanley Law Offices we handle traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and wrongful death claims on a contingency basis.

  14. Trucking accident
    We’ll give you the straight goods about what it takes to win and whether you have a case. If we agree to take your case, it’s because we believe you can and DESERVE to win. But it takes grit and tenacity, on both our parts to win.

  15. Wrongful death
    When a loved one has been killed in an accident due to the negligence of an individual or business, life for the survivors will never be the same. No amount of money can bring your loved one back. Legal action can hold those accountable.

Great job
The team I worked with at Stanley Law always supported me during what was a hard time after my car accident. It wasn’t an easy time and although it took a long time to get the right settlement, I’m happy with the results and I’m greatful. They did an amazing job
