Paul G. Mayer Jr.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Born in McKeesport, PA, Paul started his legal career with a small law firm in his hometown serving the community, including helping laid-off steelworkers file for bankruptcy when the local steel mills were closing. For the last 33 years, Paul has focused on personal injury, workers compensation and social security disability cases. He has tried or settled hundreds of cases involving injuries as a result of auto accidents, slip and falls and defective products or buildings. He represents injured workers who have been denied benefits or medical care in Workers Compensation claims. During his career Paul has done work for the insurance companies that he faces on a daily basis. He understands their tactics and uses that knowledge to his clients' advantage. Paul is frequently invited to lecture at Continuing Legal Education Seminars for attorneys.

Paul has achieved an AV rating, the highest possible, from the Martindale Hubbell Attorney Rating Service. A peer review attorney stated that Paul is "Always very thorough and well prepared.  [He is] very considerate of his clients."

A former Captain of the University of Dayton hockey team, Paul relaxes by playing in area men's hockey leagues.
