About Us

Houston Harbaugh is here to help you achieve your goals and objectives. Rooted in Pittsburgh and founded as a business law firm, we’ve been trusted legal counsel to businesses and individuals for more than 40 years. We aim to help our clients prosper, minimize risk, comply with regulations, address unexpected crises, and at times face life-changing decisions along the way within our core practice areas: Business, Estates and Trusts, Health Care and Business Litigation.

By merger with Picadio Sneath Miller & Norton, P.C.® (also PSMN® and PSMNLaw®) dated January 1, 2018, Houston Harbaugh continued to build its complex business litigation practice including its capabilities in Insurance Coverage, Intellectual Property, Trade Secrets and DTSALaw® and the combined firm’s litigation practice, now more than ever, represents Business Litigation. Pittsburgh Strong.®

Approach to client service

Our lawyers take a practical, pragmatic approach in representing clients in order to balance the legal effort with the nature of the task at hand. We provide individualized service, attention to detail and prompt response. The firm’s mission is to deliver the highest quality legal services under all circumstances.

Efficiency and Cost Effectiveness

As a mid-sized firm, Houston Harbaugh is nimble and flexible, but most importantly, you will not find deep layers of lawyers working on your project. Our lawyers work closely with clients at the outset of every matter to determine an appropriate, effective action plan.


Our academic credentials and experience are what you might expect to find at a large law firm, but our lawyers have chosen to practice here because they believe in our philosophy that superior legal guidance should not come at the expense of client service. Additionally many of our lawyers are also business owners, real estate developers, certified public accountants, and entrepreneurs giving them a client-side perspective.

Skillful, practical, sensible legal representation designed to serve the best interest of our clients is what you can expect from Houston Harbaugh.
