She gets things done
I had gone through 3 Attorneys that promised everything and did very little in a nasty divorce. Andrea took my case and made things happen! She gave me my life back. Definitely the “GO TO ATTORNEY “ in a Chester County divorce.

Andrea Pettine
Andrea helped me through a difficult divorce that, through no fault of hers, dragged on far longer than it should have. She stood by me, explained things as we went along and pushed for a resolution the entire time. Andrea is an excellent attorney and I was lucky to have her on my side. I would recommend her to anyone going through the awful process of divorce. When I lost the trust of my best friend and partner, Andrea stepped in to guide me through my divorce.

Outstanding Divorce Attorney
Andrea represented me through a difficult divorce. She is extremely thorough and knowledgeable. There were no surprises. She was always efficient and well prepared. Her follow up was immediate and she didn't overlook any detail. She made me feel well protected through this challenging process.

Highly Recommend
Andrea was helpful in supporting me in thinking through my situation and accommodated converting an agreement that my former husband and I negotiated between us into a fair document. She was responsive and efficient. I also found her very easy to relate to.

Simply the best
Andrea has been my attorney for 12 years. She is excellent. No matter what the situation, Andrea will tell you her truthful opinion. She is extremely competent. Andrea handles every situation with dignity and professionalism. When the proceedings of divorce and child custody get out of focus, she will zero in on the business at hand. She will fight for you tooth and nail. I have never been disappointed in her work. She is simply the best around.

Highly recommend
Andrea mediated my divorce 6 years ago, having been referred to me by several attorneys in the area. She expertly combined professionalism with a warm, open demeanor, and maintained absolutely neutrality between the parties. I largely credit the positive relationship with my former spouse today to her.

Excellent support through a challenging process
Andrea represented me through the entire process associated with my separation and divorce. Andrea and her staff were very responsive throughout and kept me well informed of all developments in my case. Andrea provided guidance through the Child/Spousal Support process, Property Settlement negotiations and through the Divorce/Alimony hearing with the Master. Throughout this process I really valued Andreas experience & expertise and the high quality of service she provides. Her guidance really helped to protect my interests especially given the complexity of some of the issues that I needed help to address. It was very reassuring to have Andrea’s representation through a very challenging period.
