About Kathryn

Learn Kathryn’s areas of practice.

I have been practicing in Pennsylvania since 1990, handing primarily family law issues and adoption, wills and probate. 

Please note that I am honest.  My main goal is always to resolve the matter amicably, as that is what is the most efficient and less stressful for my clients.  I will give you my honest opinion of what you are facing and whether I think you can do better or will do worse if the matter goes forward to full litigation.  I will not just tell you what you want to hear.

I do my best to keep costs down as much as possible, yet a lot depends on what is done by opposing counsel/party and what is required by the court.

A lawyer you can trust!
I dreaded hiring a lawyer. I did everything I could to avoid it, but it got to a point where I had to. I am SO glad I found Kathryn. She CARES about her clients. She is not a lawyer who will drag cases out for the purpose of making more money. She knows the laws and she will do all that she can for her clients. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone!!

Ms. Meloni is the best
I chose Ms. Meloni after having the pleasure of seeing her in-action during a hearing. I was blown away at how Hard she was working for her client . She represented me during a very difficult child custody battle. She had all the solutions, she was very knowledgeable, and she AND her lovely secretary were quick to assist my many needs.. Although I was very emotional and terrified, she eased my fears and made me feel like everything was going to be just fine and it surely was. What a godsend...

Kathryn Meloni Best Lawyer Ever
I could not have been more satisfied with how Kathryn handled my entire divorce. She was very professional, thorough, and knowledgeable of the law. She gave me a clear understanding of what I was up against during the entire time it took for my divorce to be complete. She was a great help in me being able to obtain 50% custody of my daughter and was at times very understanding of the emotional impact of my divorce. She is a great lawyer and fine person!!!

Great choice through the difficult process
Kathryn was great. She helped me get through a very difficult time as I went through my divorce. She was always on top of things and was able to keep things moving even when opposing council appeared to be dragging their feet. She also has a kind and caring demeanor which made things go smoothly and kept me calm throughout he process. If you want a lawyer that will make sure that all the "t" are crossed and the "i" are dotted Kathryn is a great choice.

Best ever
Kathryn was an excellent lawyer. She felt out how I wanted my divorce to go. What was important to me and attacked it with skill without losing any class. She made a life altering experience almost ok. I don't think the experience could ever be pleasurable but if it was Kathryn would have supplied it. When I was done I felt like I was well represented.

Professional, Knowledgeable, Fair Results
Kathryn represented me 18 yrs ago as I went through a very difficult divorce with 2 children. She handled the proceedings very professionally; I was young and anxious to complete the process as quickly and fairly as possible and she was able to accomplish just that so our lives could move forward in a positive direction. I am very grateful that I had Kathryn to navigate through this difficult process.

Best Delco Family Law Attorney
Receiving the referral to Kathryn was the best advice I ever got. She helped me with my divorce and child custody 15 years ago. She was very attentive and made sure I was aware of everything that could and probably would happen. She is an excellent judge of what the Masters and Judges will do in specific situations. My ex-husband retained several other law firms, each convincing him that his unreasonable requests of the court had merit. Many dollars could have been saved if all attorneys were as honest and helpful as Kathryn.

Never Let Me Down
Kathryn and her staff never let me down. Their response time to my questions was immediate if not within a 24 hr period. She kept me focused and on track. Never once did she let me stray towards unrealistic "ideas". She was fair for both parties involved but she will dig her heels in and stand firm for you when she knows she is doing the right thing for her client. I will never forget her or Sue and all they did for me.

Maybe She's Changed
I got hurt, personally and financially, through hiring this attorney. Not only wouldn't I recommend this attorney, I'd recommend a person move out of the county before divorcing. This family court system and its attorneys are no place for a family
