A law firm that helps clients injured in an accident strike back

Attorney Edward P. McNelis began his practice in 1982 with one goal in mind-to help people in Hazleton and northeastern Pennsylvania who were injured through no fault of their own get fair compensation for their injuries.

Attorney McNelis has represented Pennsylvanians injured in hundreds of accidents caused by negligence. Car accidents. Workplace accidents. Slip and falls on someone else's property. People bitten by dogs or hurt by using defective products.

He has seen people struggle with mounting bills for their medical care. Some were unable to work after their accident. All they wanted was to be compensated for what happened to them so they could move on with their lives.

He has also seen insurance companies take advantage of people. This is how it works. They'll offer a small settlement to try to make the claim go away. They'll try to deny your account of the accident. They may even try to blame you for what happened. You shouldn't have to put up with that. If you are represented by McNelis Law, you won't have to.

Edward McNelis has been fighting for clients for more than 30 years, and he has the case results to show for it. He'll fight the insurance companies until they pay you what you deserve. If they're not willing to do that, he'll take them to court.

McNelis Law expanded further into the area of family law when Attorney Theodore R. Laputka joined the firm in 2006. Both Attorney Edward McNelis and Attorney Theodore Laputka have helped countless clients with divorce, child custody, child support and alimony cases. They are both known for using their experience, compassion and understanding when dealing with these often difficult issues to help clients achieve the best possible outcome.
