Richard G. Talarico


I grew up in the Pittsburgh area and I’m a proud Central Catholic graduate. I’ve been an attorney working for injured and disabled people since 2004 and I’ve handled many jury trials throughout Pennsylvania.  I obtained a six figure verdict in a case involving permanent scarring.

Currently my practice is focused in the area of Workers’ Compensation and industrial accidents. I’ve obtained numerous six figure settlements for my clients and awards in virtually every county in Western Pennsylvania. I’ve been certified as a specialist in the area of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association and I’ve been recognized as a “rising star” by Superlawyers.

I have been an attorney since 2004 and I joined the team at Woomer & Talarico in 2006. Currently I focus my practice on Social Security Disability and workers’ compensation cases. I have successfully represented Social Security claimants at the initial (application) stage, as well as cases at the hearing level. I have successfully appealed social security claims to both the Appeals Council and the Federal Court level to get my clients SS benefits they need.

My practice focuses on representing injured people in personal injury and workers’ compensation cases. I’ve been certified as a specialist in the area of workers’ compensation law by the Pennsylvania Bar Association. I am a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law where I was one of only two students in my class selected to become a Law Review editor based on my submission to the law school’s legal writing competition.

I grew up in the North Hills area and I’m a proud Penn State graduate. Since joining Woomer & Talarico , I have been focusing my practice in the areas of personal injury accidents, slip and fall accidents, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, and nursing home negligence/abuse cases.  I have fought and won many battles for my clients throughout the courtrooms of Western Pennsylvania, helping  them to get just compensation for injuries.
