Although Philadelphia has moved to the “yellow” opening phase of the pandemic, our physical office will remain closed to ensure the safety of our work family. Our virtual office is always open and we are always available by e-mail, phone and videoconference. Some of our attorneys are willing to meet in-person – please e-mail your attorney to request an office meeting.

For general help with your family law matter:

• To existing clients, please e-mail your attorney directly (click here for a list of addresses) for any assistance you need or to arrange a phone call.

• If you are a potential client, please send an e-mail to and one of our staff members will respond during normal business hours.

• To make a payment, please e-mail for assistance.

We hope that everyone is well and stays safe during these challenging times.
