Mr. Palutis is an Awesome Attorney
I was full of fear, doubt, and uncertainty. Mr Palutis came immediately to my rescue. He "held" my hand throughout the litgation. Quite frankly, I did not know what in the world to do. He guided me step step on what he needed from me. However, boy oh boy, did he do an absolutely amazing job in settling my case. His knowlegde, professionalism, and amazing character helped me put my life back together. My advice to everyone; if you need a Worker's Compensation attorney, Mr. Alexander Palutis is absolutely your best choice.

A.J. is my hero !!
I went through two lawyers before I met A.J. The other two lawyers did nothing for me and told me that I did not have a case. I met with A.J. and he immediately went to work for me. He developed my case in a quick manner. We went before the Judge and he was great. He was so professional and knew exactly what to do where the other lawyers did not. A.J. took my case to a settlement conference. He got me an excellent settlement. He was also able to help me with my Social Security case. I am very thankful for he has done for me. If you need a workers' comp lawyer in Pa., then A.J. is your man!!

I highly recommend A.J. Palutis as a workers' compensation attorney. He is true to his word. A.J. and his assistant provided excellent service. They explained everything to me and put me at ease.

I could not have been more pleased with his representation. A.J. really has the experience. You seriously should not look for anyone else but A.J. for your Pa. Workers' Compensation lawyer.

Very Experienced , Knowledgeable and Caring
I was so grateful to have an attorney that provided me the knowledge to guide me through the process of Workers’ Compensation. A.J. was always there for me and always answered my texts ( yes he gives you his cell number) and phone calls no matter what the time of day. Most importantly, A.J. really cares about me. He was primarily concerned about my health. He got me the most favorable result that I could possibly imagine. I would recommend anyone to A.J. that needs a Pa. Workers’ Comp lawyer.

Highly Recommended Pa. Workers' Compensation Lawyer
A.J. was my workers' compensation attorney. I never experienced a work injury before. I had bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and operations on both my wrists. My employer denied my claim. A.J. took my case and he was terrific. He is kind ,courteous and understands the struggle of the injured worker caught up in the system. He was able to set forth my case and I received an excellent settlement in a very short amount of time. He always put my health first and that was so important to me. His staff is wonderful and always made me feel comfortable and confident.I strongly recommend to anyone that you use A.J. Palutis as your Workers' Compensation lawyer.

Excellent Attorney
My work injury literally turned my life upside down. I had two failed surgeries on my injured shoulder. I needed help when the insurance company tried to stop my benefits. I was recommended to A.J. by a friend and he handled everything for me. He even referred me to an excellent surgeon to repair the damage from the first two surgeries.His knowledge of how the Pa.Workers’ Compensation system works is amazing. He is a true professional. He is kind , understanding and always reachable for questions. A.J. was able to negotiate a great settlement for me so that I could get on with my life. You really need to look no further for the best lawyer to handle your case. You will be glad you hired him.

Absolute Greatest Pa Workers' Compensation Attorney
A.J. Palutis was my attorney for my workers compensation case. He did a wonderful job representing me. I had a very serious back injury and A.J. helped me with getting the correct medical treatment and he dealt with all the legal matters. He was able to predict the outcome of my case right from the very beginning. My case ended up settling for a very large amount. I'm now able to get my life back together and move forward after this very difficult time in my life. I owe it all to A.J. I don't know what I would have done without him as my lawyer.
