“Winston Churchill once said “courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” I believe courage is also what makes a great attorney, which is why I take pride in sitting down and listening to your problems, so I can stand up and speak on your behalf. Whether you are injured at work or unable to work due to a severe physical or mental health condition, the legal process can often be difficult, stressful, and burdensome. As your attorney, I strive to smooth out difficulties, relieve stress, correct mistakes, and take on your burdens so that you can focus on your health and family.”“Winston Churchill once said “courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.” I believe courage is also what makes a great attorney, which is why I take pride in sitting down and listening to your problems, so I can stand up and speak on your behalf.

What Our Clients Say

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.


I’ve only had a couple of times I was in need of legal opinions & was very happy with good solid advise I received. Also, I am proud to have met each and every member of the firm and appreciate the time & financial input they put into the community.

– JD –

My experience with Mike Pisanchyn and the Pisanchyn Law Firm was outstanding. Initially, we had a telephone consultation, as I was only contemplating retaining him as our attorney on an insurance claim issue. Mike was kind and courteous and spent as much time on our call as I needed. He more than answered/clarified all of my questions and concerns. He did not speak to me with legalese but spoke to me in a manner that I was able to comprehend, clearly and concisely. After speaking with Mike I felt empowered because now I had the know-how to approach my situation in a much more informed, consumer-conscience manner. I have since retained Mike’s services and cannot tell you what an invaluable ally he has been. Thank you, Mike, for EVERYTHING ! I would ABSOLUTELY recommend your firm to my family and friends!!!!!

– John –

I could NOT be any happier with Mr. Pisanchyn or his wonderfully caring staff! They really had my best interests at heart, treated a very difficult time with compassion and I was made to feel as if I was their highest priority at all times. I also never thought I would get the amount of money that i was awarded, which has made a huge difference to me.

– Laurie –

I highly recommend this law firm! The lawyers are very committed to doing what is best for their clients. I couldn’t be more pleased with this law firm.

– Kim –

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.

– Adam –

The Pisanchyn Law Firm was great through a very difficult time in our family. Although we miss our family member and no one could help with 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 knowledgeable responsive and always did what they said. We truly believe there is NOT a better Law Firm and attorney. No one will fight for you like they do and when you go to court they are great.

The time, energy, and professional expertise [Bradley Moyer] devoted to my case made a huge difference.

This is a thank you letter in reference to the help I received from your law firm to acquire and secure my disability claim. The associate from your firm was professional, proficient, kind, human, helpful and articulate. I cannot say enough kind words about her and your firm. After several tries by other law firms, your associate produced the necessary legal skills to complete the challenge. This letter is written with my sincerest gratitude and humble awareness, thank you.

Your thoughtfulness means so much to me. Thank you.

Words cannot express how thankful we are to each and every one of your for all of your help getting our case settled!

We know we couldn’t have picked a better law firm and we made some amazing friends along the way. Thank you all for what you do and how you support your clients.

Michael Pisanchyn and his staff are incredible. Thank you for everything you have done for us.

My experience with every member of the Pisanchyn Law Firm was excellent, especially Christy. Thank you for your hard work and advice and keeping me calm during a difficult and confusing time in my life. There is no way I could have done this without all of your help and professionalism.

Thank you very much for volunteering your time to help me out with my case.

I would like to say thank you so very much for helping me. I know [Douglas Yazinski] when out of his way to take on my case and I am so grateful for the help I received.

– Jim and Debby –

I can’t tell you how happy I am of the results from your office. I got wonderful, professional and extremely fast service for the situations I had. I will be using your office again if need be and telling everyone I know how hard it is to get results without your help.

– Luann–

I would just like to thank everyone that helped settle my Workers’ Comp case, you were all so helpful. It meant a lot to me and helped me get my life back on track.

I cannot thank Doug enough for all of his help with my case.

– Kenneth –

Nine years ago I was in a nasty car accident and didn’t know where to turn, with a lot of luck I ended up calling Mike to represent me. It was the best thing I ever did. He never treated me like a client, I made a friend. The friendship extended to the entire office. He did exactly what he said he would. Then 3 years ago my husband got hurt at work and we never thought twice on who to call. The firm handled the workers comp case and the SSI. I don’t know what others are talking about it taking so much time or so much hastle~~~both ended up settling much sooner than we ever expected. The entire firm works together, from the attorneys to the entire staff. I really think that is part of what makes this law firm the best ever.

– Debbie –

It is heartwarming to know that there are still good and honest people around. Thank you very much!

Thank you so much for all you’ve done to help us through this difficult time. It’s been very much appreciated.

I want to thank you for all you’ve done for me. You are greatly appreciated. If I ever need a lawyer or know someone else who does I will pass along your name. Thanks again!

– Kathryn–

Thank you, you are awesome – (putting up with me is not easy!) – Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your kindness.

– Lisa –

People like you make it easy to be thankful. Thanks again!

– Mark –

They helped me tremendously when I was going through Worker’s Compensation and a Settlement. There was no way I could have gone through it myself. Everyone was patient and professional with me and believe, I’m sure that was not easy. Everything was completely settled almost 13 months ago and I’m back on my feet and working once again. I absolutely recommend Pisanchyn Law Firm to anyone that needs help with a work injury or anything work related.

– Bob –

he Pisanchyn Law Firm is in touch with local affairs and contacted us to say, “I heard about your situation. I AM YOUR attorney.” With aggressive, honorable, and knowledgeable representation, they have also met our pain with consolation… I will never forget the day my attorney called. Trust is the new game in the legal community, the Pisanchyn Law Firm wrote the book on accountability and Justice….CALL THEM.

– Rosita –
