Jason Krasno wins "Lawyer of the Year" Award for 2016

A brief look at why Jason Krasno was recently named Lawyer of the Year for 2016 in workers' compensation law.

Jason Krasno, owner and managing partner of Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo, was recently named "Lawyer of the Year" for 2016 by Best Lawyers. The award recognizes both Jason and his firm's hard work and dedication over the years in fighting for the rights of injured workers throughout Pennsylvania. As the head of one of the most distinguished workers' compensation law firms in the state, Jason continues a proud tradition that stretches back three generations. This latest award recognizes how Jason and his team have done more than simply achieve results, but that they have helped protect their clients and strengthen their community over the years.

Lawyer of the Year

The award from Best Lawyers recognizes Jason Krasno as "Lawyer of the Year" in Philadelphia in the category of claimant's workers' compensation law. The award is determined by peers in the legal profession and recognizes those lawyers who go above and beyond what is traditionally expected from a law firm.

The award comes on the heels of others that both Jason and his firm have received in recent years. Since 2006, for example, Jason has been recognized as a Super Lawyer within Pennsylvania and, since 2009, as a Best Lawyer in America. He was also ranked among the Top 100 Injured Workers Attorneys in the nation in 2014. These awards are as much a recognition of the dedication and hard work every member of Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo display on a daily basis as they are a reflection of Jason's own professionalism and dedication.

Representing injured workers for 75 years

For Jason, protecting the rights of injured workers is a family tradition. The firm he now heads was originally founded in 1936 by his grandfather, the highly respected workers' compensation judge Honorable Isadore Krasno. Over the course of 75 years, Jason, his father, and his grandfather have collectively built up the firm to become one of the most distinguished workers' compensation law firms in the country.

And while Jason himself has helped expand the firm's size from three offices with six lawyers to 11 offices with 16 lawyers, he has nonetheless maintained the firm's focus on treating every client as though they were a member of the family. Like his father and grandfather before him, for Jason workers' compensation is not simply a profession, it is a passion rooted in a belief that injured workers' rights should always be respected and upheld. Having been raised and educated in the Coal Region and Steel Towns of Pennsylvania, Jason knows first-hand just how devastating an injury or disability can be to not just workers themselves, but to their whole families.
