About Me

It is our mission at The Law Office of Gregory P. LaMonaca, P.C., to proactively assist our clients in the development, execution, and realization of their “goals.” From the initial meeting with our client through the overall resolution of the case, we will work vigorously and tenaciously to assist our clients in developing their goals and to ensure their rights are protected. And even more importantly that their voices and concerns are heard. This system, created by Mr. LaMonaca, is called “Brutally Honest.” It is a three-phase comprehensive process designed to: first, assess the past; second, determine what the client’s current objectives are; and third develop a proactive plan to guide clients forward toward their goals and beyond.

Mr. LaMonaca, along with former custody client and friend James Grim, wrote the Brutally Honest Life Management Journal. The Journal outlines the process of “Brutally Honest” and allows the reader to engage in a self-guided journey to reconnect to what matters most in their life. Once the connection is made, the client is equipped and empowered to move forward with the rest of their life. He is also the author of the “Brutally Honest Pennsylvania Divorce & Custody Survival Guide” and the soon to be released “Brutally Honest Guide to Sur ‘thriving’ Generation Now” due out in early 2014.

It is always our approach to attempt to amicably resolve every matter in an expeditious and cost-effective manner. However, should the parties disagree; we stand committed to aggressively implement our “Team-Oriented,” litigation approach, within the sound ethical and professional boundaries of the law.

Mr. LaMonaca has received various awards and distinctions such as:

Being named a “Super Lawyer” in Philadelphia Magazine;
Being named a “Top Lawyer” six times in Main Line Today Magazine (2014,2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2006 and 2004).
Being named an “Awesome Attorney” for Family Law and Divorce in Suburban Life Magazine in 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010.
Receiving a 10 out of 10 Ranking Score on Avvo.com
Being “BV Distinguished” by LexisNexis/Martindale Hubble indicating a “very high rating in both legal ability and ethical standards”
Mr. LaMonaca holds memberships in the American Bar Association and Pennsylvania Bar Association’s Family Law Divisions, as well as other organizations.

While the primary focus of the Law Firm of Gregory P. LaMonaca is Family Law, the firm’s other associates, affiliate attorneys, and firms handle matters in a wide array of areas including but not limited to: Domestic Relations, Personal Injury, Estate Planning, Wills, Trusts, Probate, Contracts, Employment Law, Criminal Defense, Expungement, Motor Vehicle, Landlord/Tenant, Debt Collections, Mechanics’ Liens, Workers Compensation, Medical Malpractice and Slip and Fall.
     
The firm represents individuals in Delaware County, Chester County, Montgomery County, Bucks County, Berks County, Lancaster County, the City of Philadelphia, and beyond. Firm attorneys are licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey. Additionally, firm attorneys are admitted to practice in United States District Court and various Appellate Courts.

The firm was established based upon the philosophy that the client’s needs come first and foremost. It has been our experience that problems, especially in the area of Family Law, do not always fit in the normal business schedule of Monday through Friday, 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. As such, our representation has no set schedule. We make every possible effort to respond to our client’s needs as they occur.

We believe that clients have an absolute right to have all calls returned promptly. When emergencies occur, we pride ourselves on mobilizing a team to respond promptly to address the situation so that we can protect what matters most to our clients. This often finds us working late nights, weekends, and even overnight, so that the job can get done. Whether it is a basic case or one as complex as an international Hague Convention child abduction case, we take each case extremely seriously and act accordingly.

Lastly, and perhaps most important, we would like to thank all of our clients for their support, referrals, and kind words over the years. By far the greatest thanks we ever receive is a referral from a satisfied client. We welcome the opportunity to assist you or your family and friends, now and well into the future. We pledge to be tenacious in the pursuit of protecting your legal rights.
