Story Behind our Pittsburgh Law Firm

Our Pittsburgh Law Firm was founded in 1997 by attorneys Dwayne D. Woodruff and Shawn T. Flaherty. Both partner's names were highly recognizable in the city of Pittsburgh since the 1970’s due to professional sports and politics.

Founding Partner, Dwayne Woodruff was a Super Bowl champion with the Pittsburgh Steelers in 1979 and played twelve seasons for the Steelers until his retirement in 1990. He gained notoriety nationwide for not only winning a super bowl and 37 interceptions in the NFL, but for also preparing for life after his football career by attending and excelling at the Duquesne University School of Law. Dwayne is now a presiding Judge in the Court of Common Pleas of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

Founding Partner Shawn Flaherty is a former Pennsylvania State Representative (30th Congressional District) and also the eldest son of the beloved former Mayor of the City of Pittsburgh, the late Honorable Peter (Pete) Flaherty. Our firm had the pleasure of working with Mayor "Pete" until his passing in 2005.

What Our Clients Say

"Amazing! The last thing I ever wanted to do was contact an attorney - have a bad image of them. That all changed after the not at fault accident with 5 kids in the car. We needed someone to fight for our rights. The other insurance company was arrogant and obstinate. I talked with attorney Fardo and realized we needed his help. Noah took over our case and began fighting for the rights of our kids. He accomplished what I never would have been able to - very happy with his communication, work ethic, and attitude. Keep us involved and most importantly, provided expert advice. I would definitely use him again and have referred many people to him for a variety of issues. A+++"

"Nicole did a superb job in appealing my real estate assessment case. She has excellent listening skills, is very well organized, knows how to evaluate the key facts in a situation, and how to successfully negotiate solutions in difficult situations, The bottom line is that Nicole knows how to get results."

"Nicole Hauptman Amick went above and beyond for my husband and I to get a very reasonable settlement on our school taxes on our new house. Her and the company went above and beyond for us. She was very easy to get a hold of, answered in a timely manner, and was not over priced like other places I got quotes from. She did all the leg work for us and represented us in person without us needing to go. I HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who needs an attorney."

"I have used Attorney Fardo as an attorney for over 10 years for personal and professional matters. In my professional career I have had dealings with dozens of attorneys. I chose to use Noah Fardo because of his accessibility and common sense attitude. Noah advises me on many issues and is always willing to listen, understand and recommend a course of action. It's a comfort to know that I can pick up the phone and talk to noah in person whenever the need arises unlike many law firms."

"I sought the assistance of Attorney Bill Rogel to help me with a long-standing easement dispute with a utility company. When I received the utility's notice that they were once again returning to my property I contacted Attorney Rogel. In the past the utility's personnel and contractors acted in a fashion I can only describe as bullying and intimidating. This was a matter of "David and Goliath" but I was determined to fully enforce my rights. I suggested that the utility communicate with Attorney Rogel. Thereafter the utility contacted me and asked my permission to enter my property to explain what they wanted to do and hear my concerns. Supervisors from the utility and the contractor met with me. Their bullying tactics disappeared. They acted like gentlemen this time. We agreed upon a reasonable resolution without having to go to court. I don't know what "magic" Attorney Rogel employed, but it worked for now, saving me considerable expense. Thank you, Bill."

"From start to finish Nicole was prompt returning emails and the whole process was seamless. She worked hard to get my property assessment down dramatically and when I asked her to try to get it a little lower she succeeded.

"We were referred to Noah of which became a blessing for us. It's sometimes an uneasy feeling working with someone you don't know. Noah made us feel very comfortable and yet held that professionalism needed to give us the confidence we needed in him. He kept us informed of every aspect of the case and at times we would have never expected we would receive Emails from him. He is extremely considerate of not only the party he is representing but others as well. All of the Ratings above do not fulfill the feelings we have for Noah. If you need an Attorney, this is the Man you WANT."

"My family used Flaherty Fardo after my husband was injured in an accident. This was our first experience with a law suit and we were very apprehensive. The entire process could not have gone smoother. We were kept up to date with every step of our case - and our outcome was much better than expected. I hope we never need a lawyer again, but if we do we would use them every day of the week!"

"I'd never been involved in a lawsuit concerning a death before. But, when my uncle died unexpectedly in his apartment after the local utility company shut off his heat, I decided to ask several lawyers if they felt that the company was negligent. Attorney Noah Fardo was the only one who looked deeply into the details of the case and then decided a wrong had indeed occurred. Hands down, I'm glad that he was so thorough in his investigations. Attorney Fardo walked me through the entire case, basically, hand-in-hand. He'd call to update me through every stage of litigation, and when he had any news at all to report. I was never in the dark... or lost and confused about anything. I appreciated, so much, the personal touch he had with my case. I have to say, if there was an attorney who was ever-so determined, and unrelenting, it's Noah Fardo. Now my case has been successfully won and the estate received a large settlement. I can leave the trauma in the past."

"I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Fardo and his handling of my legal issues. He is in constant contact letting me know of any new developments. His professionalism and tireless preparation have made a difficult time much smoother to deal with. When you truly feel as if your attorney has your best interest at heart, it becomes very easy to step back and allow them to do their job. From very early on in my meetings with Mr. Fardo, he had my complete trust. He is trustworthy, has a great command of the law and is tenacious...in short, everything I had hoped for when I chose my lawyer."

I am an out of State client, over 1500 miles away, and through the 2 years of work on my case I never met anyone from the firm in person, yet they treated me like I lived down the street from the office.

I am very pleased with the professional teamwork, and their patience and timely responses to my requests and to the task at hand. They did all they could do to help with the difficult facts of my case, and I am pleased with the outcome. I would recommend this law firm to anyone with the assurance they would offer the same quality service to them as they did to me. Thank you Flaherty Fardo.

"After a building permit for a small exterior repair triggered a crazy hike in the tax assessment of my properties, I hired a different legal firm to make the initial appeal to the Board of Property Assessment. After receiving a denial on the appeal, I turned to Attorney Nicole Hauptman Amick of Flaherty Fardo, LLC for our last recourse, a Common Pleas hearing in front of the Allegheny County Board of Viewers (BOV). Since this was our final shot at appeal my husband and myself were leery about turning this over to another law firm rather than attempting representation ourselves. However, after meeting with Nicole, we were so deeply impressed with her demeanor and knowledge of the process, we agreed to let her handle the appeal. What a good decision! Within WEEKs she met with the representatives of the taxing bodies and worked out a very fair settlement. We were delighted! I cannot recommend Nicole and Flaherty Fardo, LLC enough."

"I can not thank Noah, Stephanie, Bill and the rest of the firm enough!!! Every time we had to go to the office, or meet with them they were very understanding and willing to work around our schedules and appointments. When we went to their office they made us feel very welcome as well. I don't believe anyone can work as hard as these people can. They truly have a heart for the people they are working for and will work diligently and closely with their clients. They explained everything to us, being two 20 year olds injured extremely bad, and they helped us tremendously by getting us back on our feet with every tool and resource they had available after our wreck.
