Our work and dedication to your case speaks for itself.

SutterWilliams has been a long-term partner for me during my career in workers’ compensation.  Their knowledge and experience has been a tremendous asset to my personal and professional growth.  I cannot thank them enough for their ongoing patience and willingness to answer questions from my staff and me.  They have greatly assisted in the development of multiple Claims personnel that has enabled many individuals to progress their careers in the Workers’ Compensation industry.  I have a great deal of gratitude for Paul Sutter and Toni Williams’ unwavering support.  SutterWilliams is a very valuable law firm with which to partner in the Workers’ Compensation and Occupational Disease industry.”

Claims Supervisor, Commercial Workers’ Compensation, UPMC Workpartners | the people activation company

I have been in the workers compensation business for approximately 35 years, and I have worked with the attorneys at SutterWilliams for approximately 21 years.

SutterWilliams has handled a wide variety of workers’ compensation claims in Pennsylvania on our behalf.

They understand the expectations of the courts for fair judgements for all the parties involved.

SutterWilliams is extremely caring and compassionate when dealing with their clients.

Karl H Vogle

Claims Supervisor, Old Republic Insurance Company

“For over 50 years, Old Republic Insurance Company has utilized the services of the various defense attorneys who have worked for the law firm which recently morphed into SutterWilliams.   They have professionally represented Old Republic with excellence and knowledge.  SutterWilliams has handled workers’ compensation claims in the jurisdictions of Pennsylvania and West Virginia. They have a very firm grasp of Workers’ Compensation and have a great working relationship with claimant’s counsel and the ALJs.   SutterWilliams has handled Federal Black Lung claims for Old Republic since its inception in 1973.  They have defended our claims from receipt of the Notice of Claim through appeals to the Third Circuit.  The attorneys have and continue to apply their excellent knowledge of the Regulations and case law, but more importantly, the understanding of the science involved in pneumoconiosis.  We have been and continue to be most pleased with their aggressive representation.  They want to win and that is reflected in their claim evidentiary development (i.e. physicians chosen for IME’s, depositions, etc.).  Any Federal claims lost have been a result and reflection of the tenor of the various courts and not anything to do with their quality of representation.  They are quick to answer questions and graciously consult us continually.  Old Republic Insurance plans on keeping SutterWlliams as our defense counsel for many more years.”
