proven experience and results

(We are only handling family law matters that involve the defense of a PFA.)

Get Prepared.

It’s great when parents can work out a custody or visitation schedule, but if not–

We Prepare You.  

In many counties in Pennsylvania (including Allegheny), one judge will oversee your case from start to finish so long as that judge remain on the family court bench, governing your custody matters for several years into the future.

Make The Right First Impression.

Your first impression in the eyes of the Court is extremely important.  Do not let the other side define you or how you look in the eyes of the court.We are aggressive about making sure you are prepared for court.  We go in read to cross examine the opposing party.

Get The Right Mindset.

You need to prepare your case for trial even if you hope in the back of your mind that your case will settle and you will work out your custody or visitation matter through a settlement agreement short of a judicial determination, which we always recommend. Our Pittsburgh lawyers fully appreciate the burden you face when contemplating a dispute over custody. You need a lawyer who has experience in these matters and who can suggest to you options to help resolve the matter efficiently with as little — or as much — court involvement as needed.

Get A Free Consultation.

Some lawyers will offer you a free consultation. Fortunately, our Pittsburgh, Pa matrimonial attorneys talk to you for free of charge. We will give you an estimate of how long your case will take. Over the years, we have represented parents during claims for custody. We handle claims for total custody, partial custody and/or visitation only filed in Pennsylvania and also interstate claims. We also attend custody conferences and proceedings before hearing officers and judges and/or custody trials. Our attorneys also handle appeals to custody resolutions. Further, in the context of a custody determination, we also handle other matters that may surface, such as Protection from Abuse Hearings (PFA) that take place while child support issues remain ongoing. We also help with PFA appeals. We negotiate with other lawyers to resolve the matter most efficiently. Our attorneys always try to negotiate with the other lawyer or lawyers involved in the case. Call us to speak with experienced family law attorneys on this matter.
