Rising Star
As an attorney and businessman in an exceedingly technical field, I have had the good fortune to work with a great many seasoned and excellent attorneys. While representing me in a complex matter, Ana Lisa demonstrated the skill, intelligence, and temperament to become one of Pittsburgh's premier family-law practitioners. I give her my whole-hearted recommendation.

Best Attorney money can buy!
Ana Lisa was referred to me from a family friend and I could not have been more blessed. My divorce is finally in the final leg of the journey and she was able to work with and make progress with probably the worst attorney in Pittsburgh. Ana Lisa stays in constant communication with you and explains every step of each process and I truly believe she does care about her clients. The mixture of her wisdom and her passion for justice make her a force to be reckoned with.

Excellent attorney
My experience with Ana Lisa representing me, in my child custody cases , was great . Before hireing her I had no rights , no written agreements, and I was lost in the family Davision system , I had no answers to my questions and I needed someone to have my back . Ana Lisa, listen to my concerns ,and questions ,and went to work immediately . I can’t thank you enough for everything that was accomplished!!! Best wishes Matt

Impeccable, honest and trustworthy attorney
I had been separated for nearly 3 years working with a different attorney and getting NOWHERE in the progress of my divorce. I switched to Ana Lisa after a referral and I could not be more pleased with my results. She fought tooth and nail for everything she believed I deserved and would not let me settle for anything less. Divorce is hard enough as it is. Having an attorney that you can trust is so very important during this time. Communication is a huge part of choosing the right counsel for your needs and I can tell you that Ana is an excellent communicator. She always responded to calls and emails typically within an hour or less and kept me up to date on all the progress she was making for me. Her honesty and professionalism was exactly what I needed on my side to my divorce quickly and drama free.

Divorce
I was almost 65 years old. I had been married 16 years. I put all my time, love and emotional support into my marriage. I was scared and anxious through the entire process. Ana Lisa did not just give me legal support, she also gave me the words I needed to hear most often, “ Everything is going to be OK”. I will always appreciate her empathy. Because she was right. Everything turned out fine. She is an asset to the firm.

Absolutely TERRIBLE service and costs a FOURTUNE
I hired Ana Lisa Petrella to do a SIMPLE custody agreement for me. She was non-responsive, never available, always had a reason why she didn't return my calls or e-mails and turned a simple task into a five month long saga. She charged me over SEVEN THOUSAND dollars for a pre-populated 5 page custody agreement that my ex agreed to sign (no court hearing was involved for this fee). She was the most incompetent, inept, unprofessional attorney I've ever had to deal with. Never again.
