For nearly a century, the seasoned attorneys at Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Gefsky have protected the interests of businesses and private individuals. Our all-encompassing approach to the law ensures that our clients’ legal needs are fully met.
SMGG was built from Strassburger McKenna Gutnick & Potter, and Gefsky and Lehman — two established and well-respected firms in Pittsburgh. From our inception, we have understood that relationships built on mutual trust and respect are the backbone of our success.
The SMGG difference
Our talents and skills are as diverse as our clientele. Our firm is built on the strong foundation of trial and transaction tested, veteran attorneys who actively practice law, mentor younger associates and volunteer in their communities. We take an entrepreneurial approach to practicing law; our willingness to try innovative strategies has helped us stay ahead of the curve. At SMGG, our clients reap the benefits of our creativity and deep knowledge of the law.
Our goal is to satisfy our clients with efficient and effective results. We offer the highest quality services for clients of all sizes. We are willing to share the risk with clients through creative financial arrangements when other firms are not.
A full service law firm
SMGG has earned a reputation for being fearless in the pursuit of justice for our clients. Our team handles high-profile cases with discretion, and has a reputation for taking cases that others might consider too challenging.
Unlike most other regional law firms of comparable size, we handle criminal defense work and complex personal injury matters. In this way, we strive to help our clients deal with any legal challenge they might meet.
