Frank J. Dolce
As the son of an industrial pipe fitter and a waitress, I learned the value of hard work and commitment to one’s trade. During college and law school I worked on an engine plant assembly line as a member of UAW Local 774, as a house painter and also as a public liaison representative with the United States Department of Labor to pay for my education. Although I worked full-time, I graduated with honors from the University at Buffalo.
While in Law school, I began to advance the legal rights of workers in the field of workplace safety and health, and was a founding member of the Western New York Council on Occupational Safety and Health (WNYCOSH). I helped draft and enact one of the country’s first “Right to Know” laws, providing workers with the legal right to know about toxic substances they encounter at work.
For the past 25 years, I have represented workers and their families as a trial lawyer in the state and federal courts throughout the Northeast United States. My areas of practice have included civil litigation, Workers Compensation, Social Security Disability claims, ERISA, and OSHA compliance. I feel fortunate that I have been able to devote my entire professional career to helping workers and their families.
