A lawyer who helps families through troubled times
Getting married and starting a family are exciting events in a person's life. But if the marriage doesn't work out, breaking up the family can be very painful, even if both parties agree it's for the best. And the divorce can raise some complex legal issues.
McNelis Law understands the difficulties family members face during these times and is dedicated to helping clients resolve these matters in a way that's best for them and their children.
There are certain qualities to look for in a family law attorney. Experience with a wide range of domestic cases, representing people on different sides of disputes. Skills in negotiation and litigation. And lastly, compassion-a recognition that these cases involve good people in difficult situations, and that the goal should be to find the best outcome, especially when there are children involved.
Attorneys Theodore Laputka and Edward McNelis bring all of these qualities to every case they handle. Both attorneys are well known in the Hazleton area for their work in family law. They have handled many complicated cases involving divorce, child custody and other issues. They also have extensive experience in wills and estate planning and can help you create a will that ensures your final wishes are carried out.
