You don’t have to feel helpless. You might be facing separation or divorce. You might be worried about the care and custody of your children.

There’s no need to drive to downtown Pittsburgh to meet with us. Our office is located in Swissvale, Pennsylvania, convenient to I-376 (“the Parkway”) and Pittsburgh-area neighborhoods such as Oakland, Squirrel Hill, Penn Hills and Monroeville.

A Pittsburgh family lawyer who cares.
We believe that informed clients are protected clients. This means making sure that you know exactly where you stand at all times, and what actions you can take to move forward with your case. It means that your former partner does not overstep without consequence. We are always glad to negotiate a settlement agreement as an alternative to litigation, but we never fear a fight. We will help you minimize the impact of separation on your children, tell you where your case is strong and where it might be weak, and help you identify risks while maximizing opportunity.
A good Pittsburgh divorce attorney will offer practical guidance and easy-to-understand advice while searching for solutions that fit your needs and your budget, and while helping you to avoid unnecessary conflict. We will not shy away from conflict, but we will always work to avoid creating needless battles that serve a lawyer’s interests at the client’s expense. Many family law cases settle without having to go to court, and our team is ready to work with you to explore whether we might achieve your goals without having to fight, but without leaving you vulnerable. Wherever the road takes you, we will stand by you every step of the way from your initial consultation through the time your case either settles or goes to trial. We want you to have high expectations of our professional legal services, and we will make sure we meet them.
Your legal team is on the job.
When you make the call to bring our family law firm on board, we go to work as a team. You will find us responsive, knowledgeable and flexible as we handle each aspect of your case. We will always keep you up to date about where you stand and what will happen next, and you can count on us to answer your questions promptly and in plain English. We will guide you through your challenges and tell you what you need to know to take full advantage of opportunities while avoiding unnecessary trouble. A fully-informed client is always our best partner.
Finding the best attorney for Pennsylvania family court.
There are plenty of divorce and family lawyers in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County. How do you tell lawyers apart to find the best and most affordable family law attorney? Educate yourself as much as you can in advance. As you browse seemingly endless names and profiles, look past the slick ad copy and read what the attorneys actually have to say for themselves. Look with a skeptical eye at the puffery in slogans like “Best divorce and family lawyers in Pittsburgh!” “Pittsburgh Super Lawyer!” and “Over 30 years of combined experience!” and see if a lawyer is willing to spend a few minutes with you on the telephone to show you who you are dealing with, and to listen to your concerns. Find out how much divorce lawyers will charge you for their professional time; do they have affordable fees, and will they talk with you about how to minimize legal expenses?
We focus on quality service and affordable solutions for our clients. You can trust that we will always take the time to address your concerns and work with you to develop a resolution that works for you and your family — both immediately, and in the long term. Although no family lawyer can guarantee a particular result, we will always devote our best efforts to deliver effective results in a timely fashion. You will find us proactive in helping to quickly and efficiently solve problems and accomplish achievable goals. We will always remain available to you, answering you by telephone, e-mail, text or whatever form of communication is most convenient to you. Your lawyer should always help you feel comfortable to reach out, when you have a question or concern.
We will always do our best to achieve a favorable outcome for you, while avoiding the kind of drawn out, expensive and contentious disputes that risk leaving everybody in ruin. We will never sugar-coat what we see, and will remain honest with you about your prospects at all times.
