Ms. Quiggle is an associate at Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo whose practice is concentrated in all aspects of Workers’ Compensation exclusively for injured workers.  She graduated from Lock Haven High School and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from Penn State University in 1990.  She received her law degree from Dickinson School of Law in 1993, where she was managing editor of the Environmental Law Journal.  She clerked for former Perry County President Judge Keith B. Quigley before joining Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo.  She was admitted by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court on December 6, 1993.  She was admitted to the United States District court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on November 6, 1998.  She also was admitted to the United States District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania on September 6, 2001.  She has litigated workers’ compensation cases throughout Eastern and Central Pennsylvania, and currently handles her firm’s cases in the Allentown and Easton areas.  She also manages the firm’s satellite office in Allentown.   In 2015 and 2016, she was highly rated in both legal ability and ethical standards by Martindale Hubbell’s Peer Review Rating System.  She has served as faculty on a panel regarding Earning Power Assessment and Related Issues at the 24th Annual Fall Section Meeting of the Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Workers’ Compensation Law Section and faculty for the Spring 2011 Tough Problems In Workers Compensation CLE offered by the Pennsylvania Bar Institute.  She has spoken on a panel regarding Making Mediation Meaningful at a Regional Defense firm’s seminar for employers, insurance adjusters and third party administrators.  She has also spoken at a seminar for clients of an insurance brokerage firm about the medical/legal aspects of worker’s compensation.  Ms. Quiggle was recently appointed to the newly formed Workers Compensation Section Bench Bar Section and to an attorney panel to help improve the new computer system for the Bureau of Workers Compensation, WCAIS.

She is a member of the Schuylkill County Bar Association and the Schuylkill County Women’s Law Caucus. She is on the Board of Directors for Schuylkill Women in Crisis.  She is also a member of Big Brothers/Big Sisters of Schuylkill County and the Pottsville Business and Professional Women’s Club, which is affiliated with both the state and national organizations.  She has served on the Board of Directors for the YWCA of Pottsville, Pottsville BPW, District Nine BPW/PA and BPW/PA.  She has volunteered for Schuylkill Women in Crisis.

She is married with one son.  She enjoys most sports, and is an avid Penn State Football fan.  Her hobbies include spending time with family, attending sporting events, spending time outdoors and reading.

Ms. Quiggle enjoys representing injured workers.  She handles their cases personally from start to finish.  Ms. Quiggle prefers to speak to her clients directly instead of asking staff to call her clients.   She explains the workers compensation laws and system to her clients and explains how these factors apply to the client’s case.  The goals of her client are her goals.  She is familiar with the workers compensation judges, attorneys, health care providers and employers in the Lehigh Valley.  Throughout her 20 plus years of representing injured workers, she has litigated with many of these people and entities.  Based on this experience she can advise clients on what to expect in their litigation.  Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo is fully capable to communicate with clients electronically through email and scanning of all documents as is Ms. Quiggle.  She is also aware that some clients prefer telephone communication and face to face meetings and will call or meet with clients based on their preference.  Her staff is friendly, helpful and excels at filing any type of document or request with the Bureau of Workers Compensation or Judge’s office on behalf of a client.  Ms. Quiggle, and the other attorneys at Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo work together to benefit all the clients of the firm.  Ms. Quiggle enjoys representing people, as opposed to corporations.  She has worked at Krasno, Krasno & Onwudinjo for 23 years because she can exclusively represent individuals in a supportive atmosphere where staff and attorneys work to achieve the best results for each client.  She also has had the privilege of working for three generations of Krasno attorneys.
