Mr. Pishko has been admitted to practice before all North Carolina state courts since 1977.

    Mr. Pishko's personal injury client base is comprised of people who have been harmed by the negligence or recklessness of other parties. The types of cases that he has handled have arisen out of incidents involving truck and other motor vehicle accidents, legal and medical malpractice, premises liability, and nursing home neglect. Mr. Pishko has been able to obtain significant compensation for his plaintiff clients through both jury verdicts and settlements that he has negotiated out of court with defendants and their insurance carriers.

    In his employment law practice, Mr. Pishko represents employees who have been the victims of discrimination that is prohibited by state and federal laws. His experience has also included wrongful termination, workplace retaliation, wage and hour violations, and sexual harassment claims. Mr. Pishko's successful track record and high degree of ethics have earned him a great deal of recognition from his fellow attorneys, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. In addition, he has been selected for inclusion in the Best Lawyers in America.
