Real People, Real Reviews
We contacted Paul Lagnese after learning that my wife discovered a mistake during surgery at a local hospital. He led a team that researched the situation thoroughly, evaluated the options and proposed an optimal strategy. We valued his and his associate’s attention to detail and response to situations and our concerns. Convinced the outcome was fair, we would recommend Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC as a counselor to anyone facing a situation like this.
Everyone at the Law Firm of Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC were very helpful and treated me with courtesy and respect. David Paul and Joshua Berger were champions regarding bringing my case to a successful close. They were always available to answer my questions, were very knowledgeable and patient which gave me a tremendous amount of comfort and confidence in having chosen the team of Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC to represent me and my family with regards to my medical malpractice case. My journey following having unnecessary surgery was a difficult one for me. The physical pain and suffering along with the hardships that were associated with my inability to continue employment, following the unnecessary surgery, caused irreversible damage in my life. But when I spoke with David and Josh at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC they put me at ease and made me feel valued because I was not a number to them, I mattered, and my family mattered.

I’m an Ohio malpractice lawyer who needs to occasionally hire Pennsylvania counsel for my Ohio clients who’ve encountered medical mistakes in PA. After careful research, and based on word of mouth referrals from some of my colleagues, I chose Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC to help my clients make doctors and hospitals accountable for their mistakes. I chose them for two reasons. First, medical malpractice is their primary focus. Second, this firm knows how to go the distance. Their verdicts speak for themselves. Lots of firms “advertise” that they handle malpractice, but very few have the knowledge, resources, and moxie to take a case all the way to trial. They get it, they live it in the trenches, and it shows. And their staff is wonderful to work with and extremely nice.
I would not hesitate to highly recommend the attorneys at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC, especially Josh Berger and David Paul. My experience was mostly with Josh and he was very compassionate, encouraging, understanding, and thoughtful in dealing with my life’s loss and emptiness (as was David). Any time I had a question, I could always reach out to him and I never once felt I was a bother to him or David or Jo Marie with my questions (and I am the type of person who is not afraid to ask questions). His staff is well chosen and patient and always polite. Josh and David work very hard to do their very best for you and your family. Josh never gives up and he builds a foundation of trust from square one. They all have mine and my families gratitude and a special place in our hearts.
I would like to thank the firm of Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC for the positive experience we had with my mother’s malpractice lawsuit. Unfortunately my mother passed away before the suit was settled. David Paul and Joshua Berger were more than I could have ever asked for. They were passionate and caring, updated us regularly on the progress of the lawsuit. They made an extremely difficult time as painless for my family as possible. Berger & Lagnese, LLC are excellent and I highly recommend them. Thank you for all you have done for our family.
I would like to express my heartfelt thanks and appreciation for everything you did for us and also for the money we received in January. It is so overwhelming what you both did for me and my family. I will never forget it. I hope you are in the midst of many more cases helping out families who are in need of your knowledge and assistance. You are both fantastic attorneys and compliment each other so well. Thank You!
Attorney Joshua Berger filed a medical malpractice lawsuit for me and successfully negotiated a significant settlement for me. Josh worked tirelessly on my case, interviewing the hospital staff and consulting with many experts. He came to my home to discuss my case and prepared me for my deposition. The entire staff at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC is accessible, warm, and caring, and I always felt my case was a top priority to them, not just one of many. I strongly recommend Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC for your attorneys if you have a need to investigate a medical malpractice matter concerning your loved one. I know they will provide you with the answers you need and the representation you want. He restored my faith in lawyers
Paul Lagnese came to my house to talk with me. That wouldn’t seem odd, except for the fact that I lived in Silver Spring, Maryland and he drove from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was very kind to me, considering the circumstances. I felt then, and still do, that he would do his absolute best for me, because he understood.
I was on a business trip and staying at a large Pittsburgh hotel when a closet door fell on me and seriously injured my neck and shoulder. After I returned to New York I asked a lawyer for a recommendation of a lawyer in Pittsburgh who could help me pursue a lawsuit against the Pittsburgh hotel. My lawyer put me in contact with the lawyers at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC. Paul Lagnese and the other lawyers at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC aggressively went after the hotel and discovered that on at least three other occasions similar closet doors had fell and hurt others. They also obtained an expert in doors who determined that the doors were not properly installed and maintained. Because of the work of Paul and the other attorneys at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC the hotel entered into a settlement that will allow me to have regular monthly income. However, just as importantly, the lawyers at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC treated me with dignity and respect. I never felt like I was just a case file. I always felt like I was being treated a person. I highly recommend them to anyone who is injured by someone else.
When my brother died after a carotid artery surgery (carotid endarterectomy) in Greensburg, PA, we hired Attorney Josh Berger. He took depositions of every nurse and doctor who treated my brother at the hospital. He found out that my brother died from medical malpractice. He discovered that the hospital ordered a blood transfusion for my brother but they never gave him the blood he needed. Not only did Attorney Berger get a great settlement for our family but the hospital changed its policies so that this would not happen again. If you have a medical malpractice case in Pennsylvania, I recommend Attorney Josh Berger. You can trust him. He will find out what really happened.
It is with great pride that we thank you for a job well done. We highly recommend Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC. Your outstanding attorney David Paul made it his business to know our family; he felt our pain with empathy and compassion and made it his own. His genuine concern and legal knowledge gave our family strength during a most difficult time.

When my 24-year-old brother Mike died at UPMC Shadyside our family had concerns about what had truly transpired at the hospital with regards to his care. A lawyer who is a friend of the family suggested that we have Paul Lagnese of Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC examine the circumstances around Mike’s death. Paul subsequently investigated the matter and had numerous expert doctors and other medical professionals study the medical records. Paul then came to our house and met with us and reported that my brother died because the doctors and hospital failed to respond properly when Mike developed a very serious but correctable change in his condition. Mr. Lagnese explained to us that it was negligence that caused Mike’s death.Our family then filed a medical malpractice lawsuit. Over the next three years the lawyers at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC aggressively pursued our case. The case eventually went to trial and on May 23, 2008, the jury returned a verdict of $2,500,000 against UPMC Shadyside. The jury also took the unique act of writing a statement blaming Mike’s death on the lack of training and supervision of nurses at UPMC Shadyside.Throughout the process what impressed me most about working with Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC was their accessibility and willingness to clearly explain things. It was always reassuring and comforting to be able to get in touch with one of the lawyers at the firm knowing that I would be contacted promptly to review the legal issues at hand, our options, and the strategy moving forward. In addition, I appreciated being able to share my thoughts and concerns pertaining to our case and to be able to engage in meaningful discussions with our legal team. Such discussions helped in understanding all of the complexities of our case as well as what to anticipate as our case evolved. I would strongly recommend Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC to anyone who has reason to believe that a loved one suffered injuries or death due to medical malpractice. Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC will investigate to find out what really happened and, if malpractice did occur, they will aggressively work to ensure that those responsible are made accountable for their actions.
I highly recommend the attorneys at Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC. The whole staff is wonderful. Attorney Joshua Berger went above and beyond for our family. He spent hours each and every day gathering the information he needed for our case. Josh cared deeply about my family and our medical malpractice case. He was able to negotiate a significant settlement for us. I only have positive things to say about the Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC law firm. They are all great people. I can’t thank them enough for everything they did for my family.
Very professional, knowledgeable and went above and beyond for me and my children. I never doubted that this team would do the best job for me they could.
After a long rough patch following my accident the team of David Paul and Paul Lagnese helped me get the recognition I deserved. They were very understanding and very patient and helpful when I had questions or concerns. They kept me informed of any changes and status which meant a lot to me. I thank them truly for making my life feel a little more whole again.

I would highly recommend this firm, they devote themselves entirely to a case, and see it through to the end with positive results, they helped us (The Pierce Family) when no other attorneys would.

As a lawyer who represents injured people when I need to retain local counsel, I want someone who is knowledgeable on the law of the state, has the respect of the local defense lawyers and of course the judges. I also want someone my clients will feel comfortable working with. When I have a case in Pittsburgh or Western Pennsylvania I know that Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC has all those attributes. Recently I had a very serious birth injury case in Altoona, PA and I co-counseled with Berger Lagnese & Paul, LLC. Their knowledge of Pennsylvania law in general and their knowledge of the intricacies of Pennsylvania personal injury/medical malpractice laws specifically added real value to our clients’ complex, catastrophic birth injury case. Paul Lagnese and his firm played a vital role in helping us successfully resolve our clients’ case.
