CRIMINAL DEFENSE, FAMILY LAW, & DIVORCE ATTORNEY IN PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA

If you’ve been charged with a crime, are going through a divorce or child custody dispute, or have other legal issues in Allegheny, Butler, Westmoreland, or Armstrong Counties, you need a good attorney who will fight for you. I can help you with your legal needs and protect your rights.

When it comes to the law, I like to think on my feet.

When I worked in the United States Senate, I learned that I loved making arguments. The rush of having to make quick decisions on how to proceed was a natural fit, and when my time there was finished, I knew that presenting facts and a case was the next natural step for me. After attending the University of Pittsburgh for law school, I hit the ground running and started working with some bigger law firms. But something didn't feel quite right. So I decided to put myself closer to my clients and their needs, opening Allegheny Attorneys at Law in 2005.

As a lawyer, my natural habitat is the courtroom; it’s where I’m the most comfortable. That’s why when I take cases for clients, I can’t wait to get in front of a judge or jury and fight for them, no matter what their legal situation looks like.

Saved me a lot of misery
Was facing serious charges by an employee of a local VA facility which is supposed to help veterans but instead got me charged with a crime. I did not even know about the charges until I got a letter from Mr. Taiani. I ended up pleading guilty to a summary charge. I felt relieved once I hired Mr. Taiani and that he could cross examine my accuser if need be. I had to bring my own treatment papers to court about treatments the court ordered because some that I emailed to this firm were not printed out but that was probably an error from the secretary but I am happy with the outcome and Mr Taiani is familiar with the local court and we had a good outcome. It was a relief to have Mr Taiani as my attorney I felt like I was no longer going to be jerked around by any VA employee or anyone else. You pretty much have to have an attorney if you are going to be involved in VA healthcare because a federal union protects harmful employees that is criminal in and of itself.

Excellent attorney to work with
I don't want to be specific about the circumstances why my husband and I need an attorney That said - when we needed an attorney the need was immediate - we found Marc's contact information and got an immediate appointment. Marc was open and honest, and worked with us on payment, and stepped in and intervened in the situation even before we had paid in full. Recently - we missed a court date which was completely my fault. I realized it the day after the scheduled court date and called Marc in a panic. Marc sprung right into action with his team and took care of everything within a very short time. I cannot even begin to express my confidence in Marc as an attorney. Marc is definitely the guy you want in your corner.

Very responsive and respectful attorney
I was searching for an attorney to help me understand how to get my two support cats approved by a condominium council prior to purchasing a condo. Mr. Taiani was quick to respond to my request. He listened closely to me as I described what I needed. I felt I was spoken to with respect--not spoken down to. His advice was specific to my circumstance, which is a quality I greatly appreciated. He gave me excellent advice that resulted in my ability to move forward on the condominium agreement. Although I only spoke with Mr. Taini as a consultant, I would gladly hire him in the future should the need for an attorney arose.

Marc Taiani: The Man For the Job
I was charged with Underage drinking as well as Paraphernalia. I called multiple lawyers looking for the best bang for my buck, and Marc fit perfectly. Of the lawyers I spoke to trying to find someone I felt secure representing to me, Marc had the best quality of information for the lowest price. On top of also having some of the best prices, he sticks to his word. Marc promised I would be able to fix my mistakes without worrying about a permanent record. Sure enough, all of my charges were withdrawn and I was assigned community service hours. On top of just helping me with my personal case, Marc also was a very understanding person. He worked with me for what fit my abilities and income best. He also told me he would be happy to represent me again if I needed. Overall, I owe Marc my freedom and appreciate everything he, as well as AAAL, did to help me. Marc stuck to his word and did everything he promised to do. I would highly recommend Marc to anyone in need of help due to his wealth of experience, as well as his diversity in the knowledge of law.

Highly recommend this firm
Marc Taiani and his staff were incredibly professional and experienced in advising me in my case. I was impressed that the entire staff was respectful and helpful with my questions and keeping me informed with all aspects of the case. We settled quickly and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome, which I know was due to Mr. Taiani' expertise! Can't say thank you enough to AAA Law and strongly teend this firm to anyone!

DUI Case
I hired Marc and his firm for a DUI, I was looking at a 2nd DUI and at least 90 days in jail. Marc was able to help me stay out of jail and allowed me to keep my job. I'm very thankful for him and his office for everything they did for me.

Disclosure Law
My husband and I bought our new house not knowing there were serious plumbing issues. The previous owners didn't disclose everything, costing us thousands of dollars to fix the problem. Mr. Taiani and his firm were there every step of the way. Thanks to them, the previous owners had to pay for the damages incurred. We couldn't have done it without them! We highly recommend Allegheny Attorneys at Law for any real estate/disclosure issues.

Real estate case
We bought a new house and had a serious plumbing issue. We discovered the previous owners didn't disclose everything and it cost thousands of dollars to repair. Mr. Taiani was knowledgeable, helpful, and supportive throughout the entire case, getting us thousands of dollars from the previous owners to fix our problem. We highly recommend him for any real estate case!

Evicted my tenant when I didn't know how.
I tried to evict a horrible tenant but failed miserably. Marc took over this eviction for me and got the tenant out. He is my attorney moving forward.

Very Professional, got results.
I was stuck in a nasty custody battle with my ex over my daughter, my previous attorney never got back to me so I hired Mr. Taiani. He immediately worked out a new custody agreement, kept me in the loop, and was fair on his fees. My other attorney wouldn't even return my calls while Mr. Taiani produced results. I'm very happy with his services and would absolutely recommend him and his firm.

Great Criminal Attorney
I used Marc for a DUI trial. Marc was extremely knowledgable on the topic and kept me calm and sane during the criminal process. I would highly recommend Mr. Taiani for anyone going through a criminal matter.

Good Lawyer
I hired Marc a few months ago for my drug charges. I had never been in any type of trouble before so I had no idea what to expect. Marc was very up front and did not sugar coat anything I could be facing. It was difficult for me at first to handle everything Marc stated to me but I did appreciate it. I am happy that I hired Marc because he let me know the worst of everything that could happen to me concerning my charges. I would recommend Marc to anyone. Marc is easy to talk to and made my process easier than what it could have been.

Rude
Was not hired , thank God. This individual and his office are the most condescending and rude people I have ever experience while searching for legal representation. This guy doesn't let you talk, he cuts you off and makes you feel like you are making up a story. His secretary and her favorite phrase "like I already told you..." is a total clown. She can't even remember what she said and didn't said but she's too eager to use that phrase to look down on others. They need called out on how trashy their customer service is.
