Experienced Pittsburgh divorce lawyers at Pennsylvania's full-service family law firm.

Our top-notch Pittsburgh divorce attorneys are eager to zealously represent you in your family law matter.
What You Can Expect From the Pittsburgh Divorce Lawyers of Notaro Gordon & Associates, P.C.

Information. Your divorce lawyer should place the rug back under your feet, giving you the information you need to understand your options so that when you make your move, you are not shooting in the dark. A good family law lawyer can give you the benefit of many people's experiences, pointing out strengths and pitfalls, and making suggestions that might help you get what you need without having to fight. He will listen carefully to your concerns, and offer meaningful perspectives.

Diligence. Your divorce attorney will stay on top of your case, meet deadlines, and always will be prepared when he appears in court. He will prepare you for your role in the case, and will make the most of every opportunity.

Communication. Your telephone calls will be returned with reasonable promptness, and your family law attorney will keep you informed of important developments of in your case. He will offer you clear answers to your questions, in plain English.

Courtesy and respect. A good divorce lawyer will treat you as a valued client, and will conduct himself professionally toward both opposing counsel and your spouse. A family law lawyer should never sacrifice standards of decency in the name of zealous representation, and those who do can actually make things worse for their own clients.

Candor. A divorce attorney who doesn't "give it to you straight" isn't doing you much good. If you don't know the true picture of your situation as your family law attorney sees it, you can't take it into account when you make decisions. A good divorce lawyer may not always have good news for you, but you will always know what he thinks about your situation.

Confidentiality. You can feel comfortable speaking to your family law lawyer freely, provided that you do not expect him to help you hide assets or support perjury.
