Michael J. Lorence, Allegheny County Attorney

Employment, Civil Rights and Criminal Defense Lawyer

My Pittsburgh law practice focuses on protecting individual rights. At the Law Office of Michael J. Lorence, I undertake legal action for people facing discrimination or retaliation. I also work to keep people from losing their driver's licenses after being charged with a DUI. I am dedicated to helping people who have been treated unfairly or who need the advocacy that only an experienced attorney can provide.

Former Government EEO Investigator

I was an investigator for the City of Pittsburgh Human Relations Commission performing pre-trial evaluation of employment discrimination cases. I am also a graduate of the Trial Lawyers College, a credential that few attorneys possess. I have also been a labor organizer, helping employee work groups protect themselves by forming unions. These experiences have given me an appreciation for the need to stand up and fight for people's rights.

Making It Easy to Talk to a Lawyer

My law firm offers no-obligation consultations in person or by telephone. We accept most credit cards and have reasonable fees. Do not assume you cannot afford a lawyer before talking with me. My law office is welcoming and casual, reflecting my desire to make it easy to talk with a lawyer. I remember how uncomfortable my mother felt when she had to visit a lawyer many years ago. I will not let that happen to you when you visit me.

I practice in state and federal courts in Pennsylvania and appear at a variety of administrative agency hearings, including EEOC hearings, PennDOT hearings, and fact-finding conferences held by the Pennsylvania Human Rights Commission. I am also a strong advocate for animal rights.

I have written on constitutional criminal law, publishing an article, Special Criminal Tribunals in the Pittsburgh Legal Journal in April 1992 while in Law School. Because there were so few cases on Article I, Section 15, I had to research and read the minutes of the Pennsylvania Constitutional Convention of 1790. That article was cited in the appeal briefs by the attorneys for Mumia Abu-Jamal.
