We represent people in all areas of family law and criminal defense. As one of the few Pittsburgh law firms that handle both family and criminal law, we are uniquely qualified to represent plaintiffs and defendants in Protection From Abuse (PFA) and other matters involving domestic abuse.

At Spivak Law Firm, we treat our clients with compassion, dignity, and respect. We understand that you may be under serious stress. The last thing you need is an attorney who talks down to you or does not return your calls. Unlike many law firms, we pride ourselves on being accessible and responsive to our clients.

We provide cost-effective representation that aims to preserve your finances. In many cases, we offer flat fees so you know upfront exactly how much our services will cost.
