Attorney Tara L. Hutchinson, owner of Pittsburgh Family Law Services, P.C., grew up in Philadelphia but has lived in Pittsburgh since 2004. She received a Bachelor of Arts in 2008 from Duquesne University, and a Juris Doctor from Duquesne University School of Law in 2011.

While at Duquesne she participated in the family law clinic, where she spent a full academic year with the Juvenile Court Project. This unique opportunity provided her insight into the very misunderstood and highly specialized field of juvenile law.

After graduation, she focused primarily on Social Security Disability, representing disabled claimants (particularly those with military backgrounds) at various levels in the disability process. Her interest and skill as a musician led her to assisting talented international artists in their Visa applications.

Her desire to assist families eventually brought her back into the family law practice, where most of her efforts are focused now.  She is committed to informing all clients of their rights and in helping them to navigate this very challenging and confusing process.

Outside of the legal profession, Tara is a flautist and contralto. She dedicates several hours a week to learning new languages. She is currently a member of the Ukrainian Community of Western Pennsylvania. She is also supporter of various animal shelters in Pittsburgh.

You may never have imagined having to face the pain and challenges that come when relationships end.  Attorney Hutchinson believes in a personal approach to provide lasting solutions for clients and their families.  She finds that clear explanations make for informed decisions, and you can count on her and her team to ensure that you thoroughly understand your legal situation. She will offer you frank perspectives and detailed advice, identify and explain your various choices, and try to find options that maximize favorable results while minimizing conflict. She has extensive courtroom experience and is familiar with all aspects of divorce and family law. When you need family law help, give her a call for a free consultation.
