Tragedy can strike in an instant. Without warning, a person’s life can be changed forever. We understand that injury victims and their families often face tremendous physical, emotional and financial challenges. Some injury victims will never be able to work again. Lifelong medical care needs can produce other challenges.
Selecting the proper law firm will be a major factor in the outcome of your case. At Frischman & Rizza, losing is simply not an option. For 25 years, we have built our Pittsburgh Medical Malpractice law firm with quiet determination, one case at a time.
You will not find our firm on billboards or television. Instead, we prefer to devote our time and resources to helping our clients. We understand the focus needs to be on YOU and not US. We pride ourselves in obtaining a prompt and fair financial recovery for our clients in a quiet, competent, compassionate and committed manner. In doing so, we spare no cost and permit our success to speak for itself.
Because we handle cases on a “team approach basis,” we are selective in those cases we accept. We are not a high-volume law firm where less experienced lawyers and paralegals will be involved in your case. Instead, you will work directly with the firm’s partners, Bernie and Craig. They have decades of experience and knowledge you can trust. They will always listen to you and they will work tirelessly for the compensation you deserve.
From the day you contact our office, if we decide to handle your case, an experienced legal team will devote the energy and resources that you deserve. We have no question that our approach will result in better representation, a better experience for you and your family, and a better result.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I was severely injured in an automobile accident caused by a reckless driver. Even though the accident was not my fault, I found myself facing large medical bills while I was not even able to work! It became so frustrating because I had auto insurance, yet - to my surprise - it didn't seem adequate. When I met with Attorney Frischman, he assured me he would work to get the financial help I needed and deserved. And he certainly did! The financial settlement was amazing! It gave me peace of mind and relief from stress. That has also aided in my healing. I highly recommend this law firm. Marvelous![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]Chris B.
The day I was referred to Craig, he told me upfront he was going to be honest. I met with Craig in person and provided documents I had gathered. He had kept contact with me via email, text, and phone calling. I was able to communicate directly through email and calling with his secretary. Craig had always told me I could call/text/email anytime of the day. Craig reviewed my case thoroughly and efficiently. After a conversation we had and I had follow up questions, he would put in email the conversation we had via phone. I believe Craig did an excellent job with my case and I would contact him again.Desarae Horton
I was referred by a friend to have Craig Frischman represent me after being injured in a car accident. In meeting Craig Frischman, we discussed my injuries from the accident. He went to work for me right away and made sure I received a fair settlement. Anytime I called Craig's office, he always returned my phone calls even if it was after hours. Tina, Laura and everybody in his office went above and beyond my expectations. I highly recommend him as a competent attorney who will work hard for you and get you a fair settlement. Do yourself a favor and call Craig Frischman if you should need any legal advice.Greg G
Calling Atty. Craig Frishman was the best thing I could have done for my companion that had a fall accident at a local facility and has been crippled ever since.
There’s been surgeries, therapy sessions, hospital stays and many other physical issues because of her condition.
Craig started on our case the first day I called him for advice and never quit until we received our settlement. We trusted him, his judgement and his advice when it came to the terms of our settlement. He even came to our house to talk with us and showed us his loving compassion.
I’d recommend this law firm to anyone that needs a good, honest and trust worthy lawyer.
With our settlement, we were able to purchase handicapped equipment for my companion and make her life a bit more comfortable.Joy P.
Craig Frishman and Bernie Rizza are not just attorney's I had to deal with because of a devastating experience, they are forever friends. Our life had taken a turn that tested every limit we had as a family emotionally, physically and financially. Craig and Bernie were up front, honest, dependable, sympathetic and sincere. They define the expression “above and beyond.” Because of these two gentlemen and their exceptional staff, we were able to give my husband the care, love and devotion he deserved (at home). My husband’s quality of life was better because these gentlemen fought, with no guarantee of compensation, with everything they had to give. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Craig and Bernie. I cannot finish this review without a special thank you to Tina, your kind words and helpful ways kept me together during some very hard days. You are the first voice I would hear when I needed to call the office and you always left me feeling better at the end of each call.

Craig came into our lives at one of the lowest points we had ever experienced. Due to a misdiagnosis, my husband lost a limb thus ending his professional career. We were not prepared for retirement as he thought he had many more productive years ahead.
Craig listened to all the facts concerning the malpractice case, but he also listened to our fears & concerns.
Craig & Bernie worked diligently to uncover the truths about the case. They both were so professional, but still managed to know us personally & actually became good friends, we still keep in touch.
We did have a good outcome with our case & are able to face retirement with confidence.
I would highly recommend Frischman & Rizza to anyone pursuing a medical malpractice suit. They are true gentleman & extremely trustworthy.Linda F.
Craig Frischman and Bernie Rizza aren’t "household names" from being splashed across TV or billboards. And that is a very good thing.
Craig and Bernie conduct their practice in a professional and quiet manner, with a sole focus on taking care of their clients as if they were family. They are caring, genuine, and authentic attorneys who manage their clients personally and with a great deal of understanding and compassion.
Our family experienced a horrific medical error that resulted in the death of our loved one. We were in need of someone to help guide us through this tragic time in our lives. We were referred to Craig and Bernie through a friend and it was immediately apparent that we had a trusted team in place to assist our family. Craig and Bernie were always available to us to provide support, answer questions, or just listen. They handled our case efficiently and effectively, based on their experience and knowledge, reputation within the local medical community, and through a highly developed network of national experts who provided case support.
With their guidance, expertise, resources, and most importantly, compassion, we were able to resolve this terrible error and bring peace and closure for our family. I am forever grateful to them for their partnership, support, and friendship.Lynne P.
My elderly father and his wife were the victims in a traffic accident that left both of them hospitalized and in need of long-term rehabilitation. But, as serious as their injuries were, the legal issues we faced were almost as challenging. At a time when we were least able to cope with the blizzard of paperwork from doctors, hospitals, and insurance companies, Craig Frischman stepped in to not only protect our interests and win a generous award, but he and his staff also handled the mundane yet overwhelming task of processing hundreds of documents and bills and seeing to it that doctors, hospitals, therapists, and ambulance services were paid. Unless you've been involved in a serious accident, you can't begin to comprehend the volume and complexity of the paperwork and the associated legal and financial risks if you should happen to make a mistake. With Craig serving as the single point of contact for all parties, we were insulated from all that and allowed to focus on simply recovering. It's a gift for which my family and I will always be grateful.Sean O.
I am extremely thankful for this law firm. They are AWESOME! When I went into the hospital for a routine surgery, I experienced nothing routine, but rather a nightmare! The surgeon cut in the wrong place and injured me internally. Consequently, i suffered through several medical procedures and finally more extensive surgery. I consider it a miracle that I found attorneys Craig Frischman and Bernie Rizza. Along with their entire staff, they provided expert legal advice along with tremendous personal care, support, and encouragement. My case faced some obstacles, yet they worked through them patiently and with determination to find a great solution. My situation could have devastated my future financially. Instead, this law team worked fervently on my behalf and won a settlement LARGER that I dared hope! Their legal expertise created a financial stability and security for my future. Yes, I am SO THANKFUL for this law firm. Look no further- they are THE BEST.Sharron K.
