I am currently a fifty-two-year-old attorney with an office in Downtown Pittsburgh located at 500 Grant Street, Suite 2900, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For those in the South Hills, this could be particularly interesting to you since my office is directly above the Steel Plaza terminal. Although my office is situated in Downtown Pittsburgh, I routinely travel to meet new clients and/or attend hearings all over Pennsylvania, handling different cases across the state.

I have always had a passion for the law and learning for learning's sake. I am a 1997 graduate of the Duquesne University School of Law, where I was ranked number second in my class during my second year and earning the coveted Eleanor Polis Capone and Josephine McDonaugh scholarships.

For the past twenty (20) years, I have practiced civil litigation in the state and federal courts in Western Pennsylvania as well as other parts of the state. I have litigated many diverse types of cases, and so, I became familiar with all facets of litigation. My passion is cross-examination, and I can estimate that I probably cross-examined almost a thousand parties and/or witnesses.

Since 2010, I decided to go on my own, starting the Law Offices of Dennis M. Moskal in the U.S. Steel Tower. For the last decade, I decided to narrow my practice to representing Plaintiffs (injured parties) with their employment cases. I became known as the Termination-Doctor and Harassment-Doctor since I handled cases in which people unlawfully were terminated from their jobs. I needed to go where my heart is. Currently, I have further narrowed my practice to focus on sexual harassment cases to the exclusion of other cases.

I also have an MBA and am a Certified Mediator and Early Neutral Evaluator in the United States District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania, and a Certified Fraud Examiner within the ranks of the International Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

I am also a published writer, both professionally and as a hobby. I have published several articles in the Lawyer’s Journal, including a two-part feature article “Tenth Year Anniversary of Bad Faith Statute.”

Made me feel empowered during my most vulnerable time.
Mr. Moskal helped me to know my rights and guided me through my journey to right a wrong. He was attentive and sensitive to my needs but was also able to help me see passed the hurt and anger to better understand the law. He helped to make me feel less alone during the process. I definitely felt that he was in my corner as he made one of the worst times in my life a little more bearable.

Dennis Moskal Review
Thorough, Knowledgeable, Excellent Attorney, to name a few. Attorney Moskal has written the very best persuasive demand letters I have ever read or needed! He is also the most knowledgeable Employment Attorney in the Pittsburgh area. As a business owner and employer, I wouldn't enter Unemployment mediation without him!

Mr. Moskal is Capable and Trustworthy
No one would want to be in a lawsuit if conflicts can be settled privately. But sometimes worst things happen, and when that happens, you need to find a good layer like Mr. Moskal, who is a capable and trustworthy attorney. I happened to be in a very unfortunate situation when I had to be involved in a couple of lawsuits. Mr. Moskal helped me through the darkest two years in my life. From the very beginning of the lawsuit, he was attentive to my case. He used all legally possible means to help me. Most importantly, he encouraged me by saying that the truth will set me free. We together experienced many ups and downs during the course of the lawsuit. He was always upbeat, even when the Judge seemingly made a few unreasonable rulings. In end, we achieved the goals that I was hoping to get. Mr. Moskal is knowledgeable in litigation. He understands most the rules. My case was very complex, involving tort laws and bankruptcy laws, being heard both at a federal court and a bankruptcy court out of state. Mr. Moskal was able to handle all these. His writing is persuasive and truthful, which again contrasts with the flashy yet exaggerating style of writing from many attorneys. Mr. Moskal understands the costly litigation, so he would not over-charge you by dragging the case, instead he would try settling the case with reasonable compromise. This is drastically different from some other "big" lawyers who only care how much they earn from the lawsuit. I highly recommend Mr. Dennis Moskal to you!

Excellent Attorney
Attorney Moskal is by far the most ethical and professional attorney I have ever met. Mr. Moskal also has an outgoing but down-to-earth personality, which allows him to establish a good rapport with his clients. I strongly recommend Attorney Moskal especially for employment and civil rights matters, two areas in which his expertise and experience prevail.
