Why I Wanted to Work for Lester Krasno For over 45 years, Lester Krasno has doggedly tackled his clients’ legal problems with clarity, energy, and common sense.  He starts his work by 6:30 a.m. and works all day without a break until about 6:30 p.m.  He seems to spend every minute of every day thinking about and acting on behalf of his clients.  In the 15 years, I have worked with him, I have never seen him take a single day off for vacation, and I can probably count on one hand the number of days he’s taken off for… Read More ››

What did I walk into?  As I stood, I evaluated my options, turn and walk back to my car and drive away, yell out “hello, is anyone here?”  or just step… Read More ››

Lester Krasno Changes The Course Of PA Workers Comp

LESTER KRASNO, ESQUIRE HAS CHANGED THE COURSE OF PENNSYLVAIA WORKERS’ COMPENSATION JURISPRUDENCE IN THE FACE OF A TOUGHER ACT AND THE DISINTEGRATION OF PROTECTIONS FOR INJURED WORKERS UNDER THE NEW ACT Prior to June 24, 1996, it was relatively easy to procure wage loss and medical benefits for injured workers in Pennsylvania.  However, on June 24, 1996, the Pennsylvania Legislature enacted Act 57 which forever changed the landscape of the workers’ compensation arena in Pennsylvania.  Act 57 made it fundamentally more difficult for injured workers to secure wage loss and medical benefits and more importantly, made it harder to keep those benefits,… Read More ››
