The Right Approach For The Right Situation

Committed legal representation backed by decades of experience.


We Start By Listening

Personalized Representation

When you need an attorney, the choices can sometimes be overwhelming. Some people will tell you that you need a “bulldog” in the courtroom. Others will say that you need a peaceful negotiator. What you actually need is an experienced lawyer with the versatility to approach your case in the most effective manner. You’ll find that strategically tailored approach when you hire John C. Lackatos, Esquire. Whether you’re getting a divorce, need a will, are facing criminal charges or wondering about adoption, our firm provides keen perspective coupled with decades of experience to help you reach your goals.
