Custody Case/ Family Law
Words cannot describe how grateful I am to Alina and Cindy at Beacon Law Firm for their help and great work regarding my child custody case. They were so helpful, always advising me promptly and taking me along in each step of the way! I highly recommend beacon law for any custody or family law case. My attorney Alina was exceptional, well detailed and very knowledgeable, she knows what she is doing and got me sole custody for my children and her paralegal Cindy, was always very responsive, keeping me informed and updated all the way. Beacon Law firm is more than just a firm , they are dedicated to helping families with custody issues and they TRULY CARE about their clients. Thank you so much Alina! I couldn’t have asked for a better Attorney. God Bless you all

Best Attorney
Alina was not my first attorney for custody. She was my second and came highly recommended by someone at the PA Bar Association after I called to relay what my experience was with my attorney at the time. Alina jumped into a very messy custody battle and was absolutely amazing. She is kind and attentive and truly cared about my case. She is hard working and I have felt in this whole journey with her, that I was in the best of hands. She is easy to get in touch with, gives honest advice, and tells it how it is. She is intelligent and fights so hard for her clients. I recommend her to everyone. She is worth every penny and more.

Child custody and PFA
Alina went above and beyond my expectations as a lawyer for my child custody case. She listened to me and handled my case accordingly. She gave me advice and explained the process as we went through it and answered questions when I had them. I felt comfortable with her as my attorney and she fought for me and my son. I was glad I had her on my side.

1What a pleasure to work with
Attorney Alina Dusharm and Senior Paralegal Cindy Dennes were more than favorable to work with. They both took the time to really understand the sensitivity of my situation and work with my requests in every way possible. They helped my husband adopt my daughter and made it a point to do what was best for our daughter. I would highly recommend Trinity Law and Alina and Cindy to anyone in the need of legal services!

Professional and Personal
When we needed legal help for our Custody case, my husband and I turned to Trinity Law. They had helped us with an adoption previously, so we already knew the character of the firm. Attorney Dusharm upheld our confidence in the firm. She was professional and straight forward, but also personal and caring. We knew that she would not only be presenting us with legal guidance, but also praying for our situation, and guiding us according to what was best for our child - rather than what was best for her wallet. She was professional in word and appearance. She made sure that all documents were filed properly and that we understood what was happening. She and her paralegal kept us informed and answered our numerous emails and questions in a timely manner. Together they explained every step of the way and did what they could to keep things as affordable as possible. Our case ended up going to court, despite Attorney Dursharm's efforts to settle things without a Judge. Her confidence in our case gave us confidence as well. She presented the case with professionalism and grace. Because of her preparation, both with exhibits and our witnesses; we were able to clearly present the case for custody of our child. Because of the preparation regarding our child's other parent, Attorney Dusharm was able to call to light, the lies, manipulation, irresponsibility, and harm that had been happening so that the Judge could see it clearly. Because of Attorney Dusharm's diligence, professionalism, perseverance, and prayer; the best possible outcome was received. Our child is safer thanks to Attorney Dusharm!

I would highly recommend Attorney Dusharm & Trinity Law Firm
I was looking for an attorney I could trust for my custody case. A friend of mine saw that I was looking for a good attorney so she had recommended I contact Trinity Law Firm. She used them in the past for her custody case and was extremely pleased with the honesty & integrity of the entire firm. This is a Christian based law firm with attorneys that have Christian values. I was recommended to Attorney Dusharm and thankfully so. She is a woman who takes pride in her work and helping her clients & their families to get what they deserve. From day one she made it perfectly clear to me that she & her staff would be praying for me and that she would be willing to fight for me. I had faith that GOD led me to her for a reason! Her and her staff take a personal interest with their clients and I believe that they truly care! Attorney Dusharm & her staff are very down to earth and easy to talk to. I fully trust her recommendations and will continue to use her as long as I have to. I would highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for an honest and down to earth attorney.
