Professionals in Pennsylvania Family Law

Founding partners Robert Raphael, Mary Sue Ramsden and Carol A. Behers have practiced together for 20 years, building one of the premier family law practices in Pittsburgh and all of Western Pennsylvania. Our firm has grown to include up-and-coming associate attorneys and highly qualified paralegals that enable us to provide comprehensive counsel in not only divorce and custody cases but with all aspects of divorce and family law.

Peers have routinely recognized a number of our accomplished lawyers in publications such as SuperLawyers , Rising Stars and Best Lawyers in America , in addition to the AV® rating through Martindale-Hubbell's peer review ratings system* for their accumulated knowledge, quality of representation and commitment to the profession. Our team has influenced legislation and court rules, and have helped teach lawyers across Pennsylvania and have authored books on family law used statewide. Members of the firm have served as leaders of the Allegheny County Bar Association, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, and in many professional organizations.
