When Times are Tough, Pittsburgh Family Lawyers You Can Depend On
Facing divorce or another family law issue is tough. Does this sound like you? You're frustrated, angry or confused. You face the uncertain prospect of what the future holds for your relationship with your children. You wonder how this will affect you financially. You're concerned about the talk that will take place about you around the water cooler at work or among your circle of friends and family.
Add to these feelings the anger you may feel toward your spouse or the other parent; the bitterness that replaced the once unconditional love that existed between you. The feeling of betrayal that now stays with you from the time you wake up in the morning until the time you go to bed at night. This confusion, anger and frustration can lead to poor decision-making during a time when every decision can have a huge impact on your future and the future of your relationship with your children. You are not alone if you have experienced these feelings or if you want to protect yourself from these experiences.
Think this really stinks? We know. We've been there, done that and we can help you! Attorney Lisa Marie Vari understands the legal as well as the emotional and financial implications of a PA family law court case. She's weathered the Allegheny County Family Division Court as a child who witnessed her parents' divorce, as a party in her own divorce proceeding and as a judicial law clerk for a former Administrative Judge of the Division. She has more than 20 years of experience in the Pennsylvania family law area, her firm has represented over 1500 family law clients, she is trained as a mediator and collaborative family lawyer, she's personally tried over 500 contested PA family court issues (and settled many more than that) and she knows the legal strategies that can help you.
Worried that you'll be financially devastated in a complex Family Division case involving substantial income or assets or a case with a self-employed spouse? Our office has represented many high income, self employed and/or professionals in complex support and equitable distribution cases.
Nervous that your case may not settle and that you may need an agressive Family Court trial lawyer? Attorney Jill Sinatra has over 10 years experience as a criminal law prosecutor in addition to her Family Law background and can handle any courtroom challenge the other side may bring.
Have a LGBT divorce, custody or other issue and worred that an attorney won't understand your legal issues? Attorney John Schaffranek has years of experience helping the LGBT community in and out of the courtroom.
Think hiring an attorney is too expensive? Hiring the wrong attorney or law firm costs way more! Our office employs junior associates, paralegals and law school clerks to help our senior attorneys manage clients' cases at affordable rates.
