Committed To Serving Our Clients’ Needs For More Than A Century

At Goldstein, Heslop, Steele, Clapper, Oswalt & Smith, our firm has been serving Altoona and the rest of Central and Western Pennsylvania for more than 100 years. In that time, our firm’s name has changed, but our commitment to our clients and serving their needs has not. We understand the difficult times that people face and we understand how important it is that we do our best to ensure people have what they need to make it through the difficult times that follow being seriously injured.

How That Experience Helps

When complex situations need to be resolved, there is no substitute for experience. Effectively pursuing the full compensation a person needs after an accident requires:
  • The ability to identify the full scope of their needs
  • The ability to consult with experts to determine what is necessary to meet those needs
  • An understanding of what evidence a jury will respond well to
  • How to present that evidence in a compelling way that truly tells a client’s story
Our firm has unparalleled experience, and we use what we have learned over the years to build the strongest possible case for you.
