Who We Are

Firm Overview

Feinstein Doyle Payne & Kravec, LLC is a well-known and aggressive law firm that concentrates its practice in protecting the rights of employees, retirees, consumers, and investors in individual cases and in class and collective actions.

Class Actions.

The lawyers of FDPK work hard to protect the rights of employees, retirees, consumers, and investors through class and collective actions.

By combining individual claims into a single class action, people with smaller claims can be represented by experienced attorneys with enough resources to hold large companies and corporations accountable.  FDPK’s lawyers have successfully handled many class actions in the following categories:

  • Consumer Protection
  • Dodd-Frank and Sarbanes-Oxley
  • Employee Benefits
  • Insurance
  • Medical Benefits
  • Pension and Retiree Rights (ERISA)
  • Public Sector Retiree Benefits
  • Wage & Hour

Employment & Labor.

The firm’s attorneys litigate sexual harassment, discrimination, ERISA (pension and benefits), Family and Medical Leave Act (FLMA), wage and overtime, and other employment cases. We represent executives and professionals in negotiating employment contracts and severance packages, and will help to enforce your contract or defend you against non-competition claims.  FDPK lawyers represent unions in labor matters and in class actions involving employee benefits, healthcare and pensions. The firm’s attorneys have been successful in cases against many major employers, including Bayer, USX, GE, CMU, the University of Pittsburgh, UPMC, and West Penn Hospital.  Our attorneys are experienced in handling cases related to:

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
  • Discrimination (Age, Gender, Race, Religion)

  • False Claims Act (Qui Tam Claims)
  • Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Labor Unions

  • Wages and Overtime (FLSA)
  • Whistleblower

Parents and students often face complex situations with regard to educational rights, many of which have critical consequences for the future. Attorney Ed Feinstein has been advising parents and students concerning their rights for more than 30 years and has resolved a variety of educational disputes.  He and the attorneys of  FDPK have successfully handled the following types of educational issues:

  • Due Process Hearings
  • Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE)
  • Discrimination
  • Special Education

Civil Rights.

The U.S. Constitution offers American citizens protection against criminal prosecution without cause; discrimination against age, disability, gender, nationality, race, religion or sexual orientation; unlawful search and seizure and unreasonable treatment by the government.  In order to build a strong civil rights case, your attorney must complete a thorough investigation and hire the right experts.  FDPK’s legal team will evaluate your circumstances to determine if, based upon the Constitution, your civil rights have been violated and will advise you as to any legal remedies you may have.

FDPK lawyers will provide you with individual attention and work closely with you through each stage of your case. Once we have met and discussed your situation:

  • We will assess your case honestly and help you to select the most appropriate course of action;
  • Where possible, we will try to negotiate an early resolution; and
  • Where necessary, our experienced and aggressive attorneys will provide you with your litigation options.
