  • I would recommend Michael Vanasse to anyone who has been injured on the job and needs a good attorney.  My experience with Mike is as follows:

    Following a serious injury on the job, my doctor told me I would always be at risk of re-injury if I resumed my full, pre-accident work duties.  Like many workers, I was unclear about the technicalities of the workers comp law, and about my rights as an injured employee.  Also unclear was what compensation to expect for loss of future earning capacity.

    So, I contacted Mike Vanasse on the recommendation of a former Vanasse Law client whom my wife knew through her place of employment.  Mike proved to be the perfect choice of an attorney for my case.  His professional experience, honesty, courtesy, and genuine concern made my experience of a difficult and contentious time, a positive one.  Either Mike, or his assistant Loraine, were always prompt in answering any and all questions I had.  His expert advice and negotiating experience resulted in a very satisfactory settlement.

  • I cannot say enough about the legal help I was given from Vanasse Law for my work related injury.  I went through surgery for a herniated disc in my neck and after many months of dealing with a problem with getting paid, and getting medical bills paid I decided it was time to get legal help.  Mike and Loraine were very professional. They made me feel that I can call them at any time and when questions came up they would find the answers for me.  I am so glad I had their help.  I don’t know what I would have done without their help.  I was able to concentrate and get the professional help with physical therapy and see the specialists I needed to without worrying.  I am able to take a deep breath that my case is settled and I can move on.

  • On February 6, 2014 I didn’t know what I was going to do about being denied surgery due to a work injury.  Then I saw a glimpse of hope when “Vanasse Law We Help With Workmen’s Comp” came on my home computer when I looked up workers’ comp lawyers.  I called and got an appointment for the following week.

    Then after 14 months of hard work, with phone calls, paperwork, and a whole lot more, what Mr. Vanasse and Mrs. Liuzzo did for me, they overcame all that was put in front of them.  They put my life and my health back together.

    They both were not just a Law Firm, they were like family and that is how my wife and I got treated.

    I cannot even begin to tell them how much they and the hard work they did means to us. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did for us.

    Thank you from the bottom of my heart and soul.

  • I was hurt on the job.  I was working on a plastic injection machine on a ladder about 9 feet in the air when I slipped on oil and fell onto my head. Bleeding my neck, wrist, sternum, knee it was my second vertebrae, they said I was lucky to be alive.  I contacted Vanasse Law firm.  I was working with Mike, the quality of his work was very good.  I ended up settling with the insurance company. Everything went very smooth.  I was kept very well informed. So if you need a good workers’ comp lawyer call Mike at Vanasse Law.

  • I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with working with Mike Vanasse and his paralegal Loraine. It is so nice to know that when you are going through something as bad as a WC situation that at any given time you can pick up the phone and they are there for you. I also would like to let everyone know that they work the hardest for you and make you aware of things that the normal everyday person would not understand about WC. It has been a pleasure to have Vanasse Law working for me! They make sure that my legal rights are protected. Mike & Loraine are doing a GREAT job for me!

  • In Regards to the Vanasse Law Firm:

    When I received my return to work letter from the workers’ comp. insurance I was devastated. I’m unable to do anything anymore due to a work relate injury. One of my friends here in Lancaster told about an attorney Michael Vanasse. He proceeded to tell me about Mike. I asked for his phone number and arranged a meeting to discuss my problem.

    When I met Mike he was able to calm me down and talk about my rights under the law. I never knew that so much was involved with the worker comp cases. Mike reassured me that if we proceeded to fight this that my chances of wining were high.

    My overall opinion of Mike and his law firm is that whether your need legal representation or just a peace of mind, talk with them first, he’ll never leave you hanging. Between Mike and Loraine (his paralegal) when you need answers they will get them quickly and with no excuses.

    I recommend Vanasse Law when you need professional litigation with a personal touch.

  • “I consider myself an intelligent person but realized that, like many people, I knew little about the intricacies of Workers’ Compensation law. On the advice of a trusted friend I contacted Vanasse Law when I anticipated the need for an experienced attorney. Within just a few days of my initial contact I had an appointment! The initial consultation was very informative and the questions I had written down in advance were all addressed. On my way home I thought about how comfortable and relaxed I felt with Mike Vanasse and with his paralegal Lorraine Liuzzo. I realized that the magnitude of Mike’s years of specialized experience in the area of Workers’ Compensation was going to be a critical component in winning my case. And because any litigation has stressful moments, I felt welcome to call Mike or Lorraine with my questions and concerns at any time. Lorraine’s vast knowledge of the litigation process and warm personality helped me weather some difficult days along the way.

    When the hearing dates approached, the preparation time with Mike was invaluable. The entire process was explained in detail. Mike made certain I understood what to expect and that the decisions being made would impact the rest of my life. Any questions I had regarding what lie ahead were answered. When the hearings took place I was completely prepared and at ease. I felt quite relieved that Mike’s representation eliminated the need for me to be in direct contact with my employer. Litigation proceeded better than I could have imagined and a very satisfactory settlement was achieved in a reasonable amount of time.

    Along the way I took note of how other attorneys, judges and court staff interacted with Mike Vanasse. He is clearly well-respected in the community at large and conducts himself in a professional manner with everyone he encounters. At the same time he exudes a sense of easiness and camaraderie that draws people to him. Other attorneys seek his advice and folks seem to welcome the opportunity to share a bit of news or exchange a humorous quip. As a client I came to know him not only as an outstanding attorney but as a trusted and compassionate individual who clearly had my best interests in mind. With absolute faith in the abilities of Mike and Lorraine I would recommend Vanasse Law to anyone seeking legal expertise that encompasses dignified and personable interaction during a time of uncertainty.”

  • For nearly 22 years, I was employed as a Police Officer with the Lancaster Bureau of Police. Several years ago, I suffered a back injury while in the performance of my duties. Over the course of several years, I had various procedures performed on my back. It began with injections, then a laminectomy, and eventually a fusion. Eventually, I returned to full duty for several years, but then, once again in the course of duty while affecting an arrest during a domestic dispute, I fell from a porch onto the ground, landing on my back, causing the previously fused disk to rupture. I had to be fused once again in the same area.

    By now, it looked as if I would not be able to return to full duty for the remainder of my career. Knowing that I might be looking at a disability retirement, I began looking around for a lawyer to best represent my interests due to this work related injury.

    I spoke with other local attorneys that I knew, Fire Fighters that had been forced into disability retirement, Police Officers that had been forced into disability retirement, and the name that kept being suggested to me was Attorney Mike Vanasse. In a City the size of Lancaster, which has many attorneys, it seemed odd to me that this same lawyer, Mike Vanasse, was mentioned time and again. He must be good, I subconsciously thought.

    I made an appointment to speak with Mike and I walked away feeling much better about my circumstances following my discussion with Mike. He answered all of my questions and explained the entire disability retirement process. I left that initial appointment feeling that if I did need to go out on disability retirement that there was someone thoroughly educated in the process that was on my side. He left me quite confident in him following our initial appointment and discussion.

    After about another two years, my employer began to push to have me leave on disability retirement. Again I met with Mike and went over all matters related to the disability retirement. Mike was kind, sympathetic, but the word that most comes to mind is thorough. He thoroughly went over my case with me. As time went on, he was available to me if I had questions. Rarely was a phone call not returned later on the same business day. I was confident that he wasn’t  just in the business to make a buck. He was in it to help people and I was glad that he was on “MY SIDE.”

    As the discussions began with my employer’s attorney, Mike filled me in totally and completely as to what was happening at each stage of the process. I was not left out in the cold, so to speak. There were no secrets or surprises. As settlement figures were discussed back and forth, I was always included in the decision as to what amount to come up and what amount to ask the Employer’s insurance to come down to. When the figure that Mike thought was fair for all parties involved was reached, Mike told me so. He mentioned that there could possibly have been some additional discussion for a few more dollars, but that the additional discussion might cause the whole deal to fall through.  I honestly thought that I had an expert in this business in my comer.

    To conclude, I thought that Mike was able to reach a settlement that was fair to me with regards to all of the matters involved. For the many reasons that I have mentioned, I have in the past and would again in the future recommend Attorney Mike Vanasse to anyone that is in need of a workers’ compensation attorney. I have not talked with anyone who hasn’t been happy with their outcome when they employed Mike to represent them in a Workers’ Compensation case.

  • My experience with Attorney Michael A. Vanasse representing me on my workers’ compensation claim has been exceptional. Mr. Vanasse and staff have surpassed my expectations in the way they have handled my case. Vanasse Law is a firm that truly understands their client’s needs and litigate their cases making sure that workers’ compensation insurance companies don’t violate his client’s rights.

I would refer Mr. Vanasse to anyone that has been injured on the job.
