The Firm was founded in 1979 by Francis J. Lutz, Esquire. James A. Shafranski joined the firm in 1981, then John R. Gorman and John L. Mahoney joined the firm in 1985. We became Lutz, Shafranski, Gorman, Mahoney & Lazzaro, P.A. in 1990. During all these years, we have developed a reputation for vigorously and effectively representing the interests of our clients. Mr. Lutz retired in 1998. After 23 years of service to the firm and its clients, Mr. Shafranski passed away in 2004. After 23 years of service to the firm and its clients, Mr. Mahoney passed away in 2009.
The legacy of excellence of those gentlemen lives on at the firm. We will do what is necessary to protect your rights and maximize your recovery. Every case is prepared for trial, not a settlement. A settlement is recommended only if it is the client’s best interests, under all of the circumstances. Many personal injury law firms hope to settle your case and are unwilling to go to trial or obtain full justice for their clients.
