John P. Corcoran, Jr.

Partner

Mr. Corcoran practices in the areas of business litigation, construction law, labor and employment law, copyright law, and immigration. His clients refer to Mr. Corcoran as a “tenacious bulldog” who puts their needs first, is very well-prepared, and has an impressive courtroom presence.

 

Mr. Corcoran obtained a verdict in excess of $215,000 in damages for a local dairy, with the jury sending the judge a note after closing arguments asking, “Can we award the plaintiff more damages than the plaintiff is asking?” He also won $127,000 in liquidated damages and $88,000 in compensatory damages for condominium owners against a major Pittsburgh real estate developer.

Of Counsel

Mr. Borkovic practices in the areas of Marcellus Shale, business litigation, and construction.
