Unfortunately I'm in a terrible situation. Because of circumstances beyond my control I am in need of divorce advice.

I do not care about cost, and I am looking for someone with many years of experience in PA.

Thank you.

Are you M or F? I hear radio commercials for lawyers who specialize in one or the other? I'm not in the market, though, so I don't remember their names.

He represented Joe Hardy's first wife. He told everyone when he was done the company would be called 42 Lumber.

Thank you Burghgirl17. This is a very difficult thing to face and I had no idea where to start. Thank you once again.

I've seen that advertised around, but only now checked it out I'm an attorney and I'm not listed, nor is my firm (which is a pretty good sized firm). I also tried the names of several of the older attorneys in my firm, and their names also resulted in zero search results.

Upon further review, only firms and attorneys that PAY to be listed are listed. That is not a good way to find a reputable attorney. I did a search for civil litigation attorneys, and only 1 firm came up! There must be 100 or more firms in Pittsburgh that do civil litigation! There are also a number of firms listed under other categories that I have never even heard of.

I understand that the site is supported by fees, and didn't claim otherwise. I provided the link solely as an additional resource after having heard/watched advertisements for the site. If you're going to argue that firms/solo's that pay for space on the site are sub-par, I'll leave that battle for you to take up. FWIW I am in no way affiliated with the site.

That being said, upon further review, only firms and attorneys that PAY to be listed as big pretty pictures are posted on the back cover of the phone book. I don't think this subtracts from their ability to practice law.
