Debra and her staff have gone out of their way to make me and my children feel comfortable thru this whole scary ordeal. Very knowledgeable, understanding and caring!

Emailed her my information to contact me as instructed on her website. 5 days later I get a call from her assistant. We were on the phone for about 20 mins as I was giving all my information. Set an a appointment for the following week. I receive a voicemail late afternoon the day before appointment saying " your appointment is canceled and we are not taking new clients". No sorry or we apologize. I called back and talked to another assistant or lawyer and same attitude on the phone. Didn't matter I changed my whole work schedule and appointments around the next day, I sent an email to Debra saying I found that really unprofessional with the rude attitude and at least she could have consulted with me for the hour as I would have gladly paid her rate. The professional aspect would to have at least gave me a referral if she truly is not taking new clients. They could have also told me why as I asked a couple times. I guess my case did not involve as much money as they look for. Terrible attitude, no response to my complaint email so that shows you what she cares about her reputation. I suggest finding someone that actually cares unless your case is hundreds of thousands.

Consulted with her regarding a family law issue. She could not specifically help me because the issue was in another state, but listened and provided helpful opinions. My rating is only based on a short meeting but I would consider her for future counsel should the need arise

I have had the privilege of working with Debra on various legal matters throughout the years. She is my go-to attorney for family matters in western Pennsylvania. In addition to bringing her experience, knowledge, and professionalism to her representation, Debra also treats her clients with care and compassion. I never hesitate to refer clients to Debra and have always been very pleased with the job she has done for them.
