Family Law

Our Family Law group, led by Pittsburgh based partner Bernadette Staroschuck, handles all family law matters, including pre-nuptial agreements, separation, divorce, property distribution, child custody, visitation rights, and, when possible, collaborative law engagements to resolve issues amicably. The collaborative law process, an alternative dispute resolution vehicle, encourages divorcing couples to work together with our specially trained mediators to resolve disputes respectfully, without going to court. When needed, we employ trained child specialists, counselors, divorce coaches, and other financial professionals to work together to achieve the priorities and goals of both spouses. Our attorneys are committed to helping families in transition cope with the realities of divorce while preserving respect between the parties and the best interests of any children.
