The son of a Youngstown steelworker, Atty. Joseph A. Moro is acutely aware of the challenges that working people face and the dire impacts that injuries and impairments can have on them and their families.

"I think I identify with a lot of our clients because of my own background, coming from a blue-collar family," he says.

In addition to being raised in a blue-collar family, Atty. Moro has his own experience working in the steel mills. He spent his summers during his undergraduate college years at Youngstown State University working at Republic Steel Corp. as well as at the General Motors' Lordstown assembly plant.

He knew then that he wanted to be a lawyer, and after getting his B.S. degree from Youngstown University in 1981, he enrolled at the University of Cincinnati College of Law. He received his J.D. there in 1985 and worked for a year in a law firm and another year in the City of Youngstown's Law Department before joining this firm in 1987.

From the start, his practice has focused on workers' compensation claims, but he has also been a trial lawyer handling both workers' compensation appeals and personal injury cases. Over the years, he has obtained a number of favorable jury verdicts on behalf of his clients.

To Atty. Moro, the greatest professional rewards come from being able to help people put their lives back together following oftentimes devastating setbacks.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
