    Cardamone Law is an extremely rare boutique law firm that dedicates 100% of its practice to the strong representation of injured workers under the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Act. The Pennsylvania Work Injury Lawyers Law Firm has five convenient offices throughout Pennsylvania and will make home visits upon request. Cardamone Law is owned by Attorney Michael W. Cardamone, a Certified Specialist in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation, and a 1992 graduate of St. Joe’s Prep in Philadelphia, Boston College in 1996, and The Villanova University School of Law in 1999. Attorney Cardamone also completed a Leadership Principles Course in 2020 through the Harvard University Business School, and is one of only approximately 100 Work Comp Lawyers in Pennsylvania who is Certified as a Specialist for injured workers.

    Cardamone Law was founded in November 2013 by Certified Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation attorney, Michael W. Cardamone (“Cards”.)  Prior to opening Cardamone Law, Michael handled workers’ compensation cases for 15 years for several firms including a large, prominent Claimant’s firm for nine years. Due to Michael’s passion, dedication, and success, in addition to his unique, friendly style, his client base started to swell. Injured workers were finding out that a workers’ compensation attorney could obtain tremendous results and be friendly and down to earth at the same time. Indeed, having respect for his clients and treating them with the dignity they deserve is Michael’s trademark. While the firms he had worked for were great firms, he wanted to open up a small, boutique firm that dedicated 100% of its practice to injured workers- not dabbling in any other areas of law. This would make the firm ultra- efficient and accessible to its clients- injured workers in Eastern and Central Pennsylvania. This was a risk as virtually every other firm that touts itself as a “Workers’ Compensation Firm” also handles social security disability and/or personal injury law. But Cardamone’s model has worked. Injured workers get one-on-one attention from a Certified Specialist, knowing that 100% of the firm’s expertise lies in Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation.

Soon after I was fired, so I contacted Paul Silver at Cardamone Law Firm who did an excellent job in getting me financially compensated in a fairly short amount of time. Paul and his assistant Shirley always responded to any questions I had about the case in a very short amount of time. Thank you for helping me with this difficult case."

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing"

    "Mike Cardamone is amazing. He is "hands down" one of the best lawyers I've ever had the privilege of knowing. He is very kind, understanding, knowledgeable in his field, always very thorough and helpful. He was extremely professional and someone who truly cares about his clients. I felt completely at ease with him. He was a pleasure to work with, explained everything in detail, as well as answered all my questions with knowledge and care. If you want someone you can trust, who communicates every step of the way, will fight for you and make sure you win your case, he is it! I will refer all my family and friends to him. Thank you so much Mike, for everything. I appreciate all your hard work and dedication in helping me."

    Without a doubt YOU are the best!!!

    "Without a doubt YOU are the best!!! Every person who is in the horrible position of being injured at work should have someone as kind, compassionate and knowledgeable as you on their side. You never once made me feel like I was one of a hundred other clients. I always knew you had my back! You answered calls and emails at all hours. You fought every fight for me so I only had to worry about getting well. Behind your nice, calm face there’s a pit bull ready to take on any employer or judge. I can never thank you enough."
