View Transcript

My name is Dennis Liotta. I’m a partner at Edgar Snyder & Associate, and since 1990 I've been manager of the workers’ compensation and social security disability departments. Why I became an attorney in the first place is that it's an incredibly rewarding profession to be able to help people in such a way that brings a lasting impact on their lives. Back in the 1980s I worked for a prominent Pittsburgh defense law firm and by working on the defense side you got a chance to see things that just really wasn't right, how they took advantage of injured workers. I mean these are people who were injured on the job. They did not go to work that day thinking, “Why, I want to get injured,” and unfortunately the insurance companies and the employers took advantage of them. And so, when Edgar gave me the opportunity to come work on the claimant side, it was an opportunity that I jumped at and I never looked back from that day forward.
