Pennsylvania is what is known in legal terms as an equitable distribution state. What that means is that property settlements are not simply a fifty-fifty split of the marital assets and debt. Instead, property settlements are supposed to represent an equitable, but fair, split. Unfortunately, the issue of what’s “fair” can be litigated to death by lawyers more concerned with their fees than they are their clients.
We’re not them.

An old cliché says that success in marriage is really about “give and take.” As far as we can tell, it’s also true. What we also believe is that success in divorce (minimizing its harmful effects on the whole family) is really about give and take, too. Because of that, we encourage clients to be practical and reasonable about property issues whenever possible, and to stay focused on achieving results they can live with.
For two decades, we’ve been earning the trust of your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Today, let us earn yours.
