Experience and Commitment

Our offices are located in downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We represent individuals, families, and business in a wide range of issues throughout Western Pennsylvania

What We Do

At Kurzweg Law Offices we know each of our clients by name, rather than file number. Outstanding personal service is as important to us as it is to our clients. We have the ability to offer individual attention to each client, and exercise direct control over every aspect of each case. This enables us to operate efficiently and effectively, in accordance with the particular needs of our clients. We are dedicated to offering you sound, straightforward advice about your legal options, and to standing up for your legal rights.

Our broad range of litigation experience makes us an outstanding choice when litigation becomes a necessity. While experience is important, our firm also appreciates the personal relationship between an attorney and his or her client that is at the heart of the legal profession. At our law firm we communicate effectively with our clients and demonstrate the strictest personal and professional ethics. Client service is as important to us as it is to our clients, and we are known for our personal service and attention to detail.

We offer free initial consultations, flexible office hours, and emergency appointments if necessary; broad experience in diverse areas of law; contingency fees in injury cases; and competitive fees for other types of work.


We are conveniently located in the heart of downtown Pittsburgh. Our building is located at the corner of Fifth Avenue and William Penn Place.
