Robert Peirce & Associates, P.C.’s Attorney Elizabeth A. Chiappetta was featured in TribLIVE's Daily and Weekly email newsletter for her integral work as our firm’s first woman lawyer. She joined our legal team in 2014 to advocate for clients in nursing home abuse and personal injury cases. Today, she is a partner at our firm and works with a team that includes 6 other women lawyers.
TribLIVE specifically shone the spotlight on Attorney Chiappetta in “Top 5 Ways Robert Peirce and Associates Partner Elizabeth Chiappetta Helps Female Clients” to discuss the unique perspective women lawyers offer at our firm, especially when providing legal counsel to women clients.
“In a time of ‘me too’ and other similar gender-specific issues focused on women, our clients sometimes look for a fellow female to represent them because of our innate connection and understanding of each other,” Attorney Chiappetta told TribLIVE. “They feel that we can appropriately address their concerns, so they gravitate toward our instinctive ability to nurture.”
In fact, Attorney Chiappetta considers providing client comfort and support as the most important aspect of her legal work, particularly when they are enduring terrible hardship (such as when they are coping with the loss of a loved one or have been subjected to horrific trauma). This, along with her innate investigative skills, is what first drew her to practice law.
As a proud wife and mother, Attorney Chiappetta easily offers an empathetic ear to clients pursuing cases on behalf of their injured family members, as well as to women seeking legal help for claims concerning sexual assault, birth control issues, vaginal mesh, and various gynecological medical malpractices. She believes that her status as a woman aids these clients in discussing the traumatic experiences they went through, which allows her to strengthen their cases and effectively advocate for them.
“I strive to make clients comfortable and be as responsive as possible when they are dealing with a difficult legal situation, such as when the death of a loved one or life-changing accident is involved. You want an attorney who will fight passionately for your justice,” Attorney Chiappetta said. “You want someone who can put herself in your shoes.”
Her approach has proved to be very effective, earning her recognition in the selective Super Lawyers® Rising Stars list from 2013 to 2020. Attorney Chiappetta holds membership to multiple bar associations: Allegheny County Bar Association, Pennsylvania Bar Association, and American Bar Association. She is a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice, where she serves on the Board of Governors and Executive Committee, and the American Association for Justice. Furthermore, she serves as the Western Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association’s President of the Executive Board.
