To many people, Scranton is the setting for the hit situation comedy The Office. But to the litigation and insurance defense lawyers at Sherr Law Group, Scranton is more than the home of Jim, Pam, Michael Scott and Dwight Shrute.
The city grew, fueled by demand for coal and textiles, especially during World War II. But when the post-war economy boomed, demand for coal declined as other forms of energy became more popular. In 1945, the city created the Scranton Plan to diversify the economy beyond coal.
Today, Scranton offers residents and visitors alike a live arts and cultural community, many attractions and outdoor activities.
