If you're lost and don't know where to go...
When people phone or email in to one of my radio or television shows, they're looking for answers. I'm here to help. If I don't know the answer immediately, I'll give you direction and insight on where to go and what to do next:
You’re seriously injured and you want justice. The Team at Stanley Law offers a FREE evaluation of your case to determine if, based on factors and information you provide us, you have a case that can be won. If The Team at Stanley Law takes on your case, it’s because we believe you can WIN.
Following an accident, some may be tempted to try to take care legal issues without getting professional representation. It’s crucial to understand the pitfalls of trying to go it alone. In most cases, an attorney can work on your case to ensure a full recovery and get you the cash you deserve.
At Stanley Law, we abide by the contingency fee contract, which is approved by the New York and Pennsylvania Bars. This means that we will only collect if the case is successful. We accept a fixed percentage, typically one-third, of the recovery.
It’s difficult to determine how long it will take to resolve a personal injury lawsuit. Each case is unique; therefore, no general timetable can be established for personal injury cases. A personal injury lawsuit may settle in a few months without the need for a trial, while others can take years to complete.

I was involved in a work place injury, Sheila Fallon and her Team of legal professionals always listened to me, stood by me, fought and successfully settled my case. They were always there and available to answer any and all questions that I had. I never felt like couldn’t reach out to Sheila, which I did very often. She was always so patient, professional, and fought for the “little person” in my case against a large local company. I will always refer any friends and family, that may need legal services to Stanley Law Offices. They are the best. I always felt I was receiving “home town service” but from a large law firm.

I’ve witnessed first-hand for nearly two decades through my work with Joe, the dedication, the focus, the tireless efforts and commitment made to give clients a deserved voice inside and outside the courtroom. Joe Stanley’s voice of wisdom and reason in any room instills the utmost confidence that IF a case CAN be WON, he’ll do all he can to see it through to the end for the best possible result. And even in those cases where it’s questionable whether the firm can win for one reason or another, often due to circumstances far beyond the control of the firm itself, if it’s the right thing to do, Joe and his Team will go to whatever degree is reasonable and helpful to give the individual support and attention. It’s a privilege to work beside them and I’d recommend them to anyone who’s been injured or had a family member seriously injured in any way.
If you are hurt and in trouble and need a law team that will treat you like family giving you support and understanding along with decades of experience in your immediate locale and beyond stop Attorney shopping now and just give Joe Stanley a call. I was seriously hurt at work and in the middle of being totally screwed over by my employer until Joe and Anna and Denise at the firm took over and guided me to a substantial win in my case. It took time and a lot of work but that’s how a professional organization operates. This is not a “rush to settle out of court” “ambulance chaser” but a man with dignity to truly cares. I highly recommend Joe Stanley law team.
