Fike, Cascio & Boose has been a southwestern Pennsylvania institution since 1948, representing individuals and businesses in a variety of legal matters.

The firm’s founders were the late Paul E. C. Fike, and Joseph N. Cascio. These skilled litigators and transactional lawyers quickly established a reputation for effective and professional legal work.

Robert I. Boose, a member of a distinguished family of lawyers and jurists, joined the firm in 1963 with special expertise in real estate and estate matters. Eugene E. Fike, II, Paul Fike’s nephew, joined the firm shortly after Paul’s death.

Jack Dirienzo, John Cascio and Jim Cascio joined the firm in the 1970s while working as local public defenders and assistant district attorneys. Jeff Berkey joined in the mid 1980s after spending several years practicing in a local trust department.

Lois Witt (Geary) Caton and Scott Bittner joined us in the 1990s. Berkey and Caton first served clerkships in the Somerset County Courts, while Bittner clerked in several practice settings in Pittsburgh while in law school. Bittner followed the footsteps of Eugene Fike and John Cascio and was elected as a Judge of the Somerset County Court of Common Pleas, taking office in January 2016.
