About Michael

Learn Michael’s areas of practice.

As founder and owner of the Pisanchyn Law Firm, Attorney Michael Pisanchyn started his working life at a chrome-plating company, and not as an attorney.

Through that experience, namely a former co-worker he befriended who lost their life due to poor working conditions, he came to know what he wanted in life, and that was to give a voice to those that have been injured. Attorney Michael Pisanchyn has gone up against some of the biggest corporations, and shown those corporations the law is not just reserved for rich. It is something that can mean the difference between life and death for working people.

Attorney Pisanchyn left that job to attend and graduate from Pennsylvania State University. He then received his Juris Doctorate from Dickinson School of Law. He has worked for the District Attorney’s Office, Public Defender’s Office, as well as the Attorney General’s Office.

Since opening The Pisanchyn Law Firm he primarily works on cases involving individuals who have been charged with a crime or have suffered injuries due to: an automobile accident, a tractor trailer accident, a motorcycle accident, medical malpractice, a birth injuries, brain injuries, wrongful death, animal bites, slips, trips, and falls, worker’s compensation, social security disability benefits, and all personal injuries caused by another’s negligence.

Attorney Pisanchyn appears in Court in many counties including, but not limited to, Lackawanna, Luzerne, Susquehanna, Monroe, Wayne, Wyoming, Bradford, Lycoming, Union, Pike, Columbia, Snyder, Montour, Sullivan, Carbon, Northumberland, Schuylkill, Clinton counties, and all over Pennsylvania.

Simply stated, if Michael Pisanchyn or his office represents you, there is no doubt that the other side will know that you are intelligent enough to hire an attorney that is skilled, compassionate and aggressive. An attorney that will obtain a fair settlement for you or will take the case to trial and put the matter to twelve jurors and have them enter a substantial verdict in your favor.

Best lawyer!
I rate the Pisanchyn law firm five stars if I had a way to rate them 100 stars I would they were so kind so helpful and so caring in a very scary time of my life. I don’t know what I would’ve done without Mr. Pisanchyn and his staff. No matter what I needed they were there morning, noon, or night Mr.Pisanchyn was even kind enough to give me his own personal cell phone number in case I ever needed him day or night. This is the second time I’ve used his law firm and I will use him 100 more Times. I fully recommend his law firm to anyone and everyone in need of a good defense lawyer. I’ve already recommended him at least a dozen times and everyone I told to use his law firm has been more than satisfied. Some of them even called me and said thank you for recommending him. Thank you so much mike for everything you did for me and my family.

The best
My journey started with this law firm in 2007 with my disability case. My lawyer got to know me so well that he came in without papers in front of him and got me my disability that another law firm didn't . Then I was injured in a car accident. Something told me in my gut I should go to them. They were professional and compassionate. I was calling daily at times and they assured me that I was ok to call as many times as I needed. They eased my nerves as they got me my settlement. My story I thought would have ended there but here we go again fell and broke my knee! Through covid and all still got me a settlement. Hopefully my story ends there but if not then I know I am going to them! 13 years with the same attorney is an amazing feat. I recommend them to anyone.

Excellent Attorney's
Pisanchyn Law Firm has been my attorney team for over 8 years, they have helped manage both personal injury issues as well as Social Security issues. I have found their integrity to be unwavering and the amount of protection and forethought they offer a client is second to known. Their team have always been ready to assist me with any endeavor whether it be a quick response or just showing me that my case was important. When it came time for settlement, they were able to exceed my expectations with how much money they got me. I can honestly say I could not recommend a better firm for all our legal matters.

The Pisanchyn Law Firm was great through a very diffucult time in our family. Although we miss our family member and noone could help wth that--- the pisanchyn law firm got us the answers to what happened to him and also justice when we went to court. The attorneys and staff were knowledgable responsve and always did what they said. If you need an attorney, the Pisancyn Law firm will represent you skillfuly and aggressivly. We truely believe there is NOT a better Law Firm and attorney. Noone will fight for you like they do and when you go to court they are great. I'm just saying...

Mike Pisanchyn fits every definition of the word excellent
After my accident I wasn't sure what to do, or who to hire. I had called a few different attorneys but Attorney Pisanchyn had gotten back to me right away and helped me feel most at ease of all of them. Through out my case he kept me informed and was available to speak with me any time I had a question. In the past I had dealt with another attorney and just getting him on the phone was a nightmare so it was a nice change. Between the staff and Attorney Pisanchyn himself I really felt like I always had someone there for me, which is a good feeling after being through such a hard time. I highly recommend Michael Pisanchyn to anyone looking for a personal injury attorney. He truly cares for his clients and does everything to show that.

"Attorney Pisanchyn is without a doubt the most zealous advocate I have ever witnessed. He will go to any length to make sure his clients receive justice after a catastrophe. Not only is he unrivaled in his skill at handling even the most complicated matters, he is tireless in his pursuit of results.
