Child Custody Case for Father
Deborah is a huge blessing and fighter for children! She helped me with a custody case against my children's mother who left our home abruptly, taking our three children with her. Their mother would then file for child support and between her and her boyfriend, would abuse the children. I had hired a lawyer previously to help with this matter and $11k+ later, I was still finding myself fighting and uphill battle for my children in court. I found this website looking for new representation, read these reviews and scheduled an appointment with Deborah. She was willing to take my case with only 3 days before the hearing and delivered explosive results! I had temporary Primary physical custody as their mother had pending child abuse charges against her. Their mother then filed for Emergency modification of custody as she wanted full primary and physical custody to keep our children away from their family and avoid paying child support. Deborah was able to push for a 50/50 ruling and their mother to continue to pay child support. Deborah was just as passionate about my children's well-being as I am. She fought her hardest for their safety and I felt so blessed and grateful to have her representing me and my family. She took her time to prepare me for what to expect and how to prepare. She took over and fought like I have never been defended before. Father's don't usually have a fighting chance in the state of Pennsylvania, but Deborah showed me yesterday that there are still people who work in our broken system that uphold the law without prejudice. She is very knowledgeable and experienced; sharp as a double-edged sword, and a force not to be reckoned with. I highly recommend her services!!! You will not regret it!

Winning on Facts!
Debbie is an awesome attorney. She handled a real estate case and we won! She addressed the baseline facts; applied black letter law and utilized down to earth courtroom approach to present a well- thought out case. She was tenacious but also quietly articulate. I recommend Debbie if you need a successful lawyer who puts her clients first!

Turned my frown...upside down!!!
I found Debbie on my own while researching lawyers in Media (online). She saved me from having to pay a boat load of money in child support. She's very down to earth, listens to her clients and eases your worries with nothing but WINS WINS WINS in court. I never told her I had sleepless nights about court although she told me over & over "not to worry." I spent a decent amount of time getting all my paperwork together which caused me anxiety. My case was called & she "did her thing." Everyone looked at me with questioning eyes asking "where did you find her?" I won my case(s) & my worries & anxiety were out the window:):):)

If you need a compasionate and outstanding lawyer, Deborah M. TRUSCELLO IS THE ONE
I asked Deborah M TRUSCELLO, to represent me at the last minute, in my painful divorce case because I did not agree on Alimony and other important issues with the other attorney I had. I found Deborah M. TRUSCELLO, to be an very compassionate and outstanding professional lawyer. I was blessed and fortunate to have her. Deborah M. TRUSCELLO, VIGOROUSLY FOUGHT for all my divorce entitlements after 33 years of being a loving wife in marriage. She understood my anger, pain, and depression. She represented me as if I was her daughter and I appreciated that because it was very emotional for me and financially draining.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Debbie is a former District Justice before whom I had the pleasure of appearing. She has transitioned into the private practice of law very well. Debbie is a tough litigator and well able to protect her clients, some of whom clearly did not deserve such good lawyering. Debbie has, nonetheless, maintained a courteous, fair and just demeanor with opposing counsel. I may have really disliked her client, but I would be glad to have Debbie oppose me any day. I can say this in all seriousness, because most attorneys find it hard to vigorously represent their clients and maintain such good relations with opposing counsel."

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"It is my priviledge & honor to write this recommendation on behalf of my friend & fellow attorney, Deborah M. Truscello, Esq. Ms. Truscello is an excellent attorney, who is extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of family law, custody, divorce, support, equitable distribution and PFA matters. She is also an excellent court-room litigator & will do whatever she can within the bounds of the law to vigerously represent her clients. If I were to ever personally need to hire family law counsel (which I do not ever expect to have to do!), Ms. Truscello would be at the top of my list for family law attorneys here in Delaware County. Furthermore, she spent a number of years serving Delaware County as a Magisterial District Judge, therefore, she is well versed in a large variety of law, from civil to criminal, landlord-tenant, etc. Therefore, & without reservation, I offer my higest recommendation of Attorney Deborah M. Truscello, Esq. By: Robert E. O'Connor, Esq."
