Compassion and Professionalism In Family Law

At John C. Lackatos, P.C., we understand that a good lawyer needs to be versatile. The tough, aggressive approach that often works well for criminal defense is typically not as effective or productive in a family law case.

In divorce, custody and other family law matters, peaceful negotiation and cooperation often yield the best results. This approach tends to save time and money, and gives both parties the most control over the outcome. If you have minor children, it is especially important to resolve disputes peacefully if at all possible.

We first strive to seek cooperative solutions, but our primary responsibility is to you and your children. If your co-parent refuses to negotiate in good faith, we will not hesitate to re-examine our tactics and pursue a more assertive course of action.

Why It's Important To Hire A Local Attorney

Family laws — especially those related to child custody — are the same throughout Pennsylvania. However, each county has its own procedures and practices, and subtle differences can be more important than you think.

Our firm regularly practices in Venango County, Clarion County, Crawford County and Mercer County. We are very familiar with the practices and procedures in each of these four, and we can optimize your case for the particular county that has jurisdiction.
