A Personal Approach To Family Law

As elsewhere in the country, the divorce rate in Pennsylvania has climbed steadily over the past several decades. Today, nearly 50 percent of all marriages end in divorce. Yet every divorce is complicated in its own way. There are unique considerations with regard to one's children and assets. From a legal standpoint, then, every divorce matter requires its own approach to resolution.

For nearly 40 years, the attorneys at Silverblatt & Associates have helped guide residents of Wilkes-Barre and surrounding communities through their divorces and related family concerns. In this time, we have developed a reputation for providing compassionate and effective counsel and successfully upholding our clients' interests throughout divorce proceedings.

A Legacy In The Region

Many of our cases come to us through referrals from other law firms. This is a reflection of our recognized ability to achieve favorable outcomes in family law matters. We have also earned accolades from renowned legal institutions. Our principal attorney, Arthur F. Silverblatt, has been named in Pennsylvania's Super Lawyers index for more than 10 years. He has also been awarded an AV rating* from Martindale-Hubbell, indicating that his peers recognize him for practicing with the highest degree of professional excellence.

We are committed to assisting our clients through every stage of the process. We consult with them prior to filing to make sure they know their options. We take care to understand their priorities concerning custody and finances and help educate them about potential tax liabilities and other pitfalls. We negotiate with opposing counsel to settle matters quickly and without rancor and offer assertive courtroom representation when agreements cannot be made outside of trial.
