PFA Orders and Police Officers

Pittsburgh police must keep statistics for officers involved in criminal domestic violence incidents and Protection From Abuse (Orders).

The mere accusation of abuse against a law-enforcement official can be devastating.

PFA Orders frequently restrict defendants from possessing firearms. Because police officers are required to possess a firearm as part of their job, a PFA may result in suspension or even termination.

Spivak Law Firm has successfully defended police officers at the federal, state, and local levels against accusations of abuse. For a free consultation, call Spivak Law Firm at (412) 344-4900 or toll free at (800) 545-9390.

Summary Offenses and Expungements

Summary offenses are low-level criminal offenses. They include public intoxication, disorderly conduct, public urination, harassment, and cruelty to animals.

If you’re charged with a summary offense, we recommend contesting the charges by pleading ‘not guilty’ and hiring Spivak Law Firm to represent you in court.

We have helped many people charged with summary offenses, then successfully expunged, or erased, the charges from their criminal records.

At Spivak Law Firm, we do not judge our clients. We provide strong, aggressive representation to help them move on with their lives.

Child Custody and Football

Should you let your child play football or hockey?

As medical research continues to link sports-related concussions to long-term brain damage, families increasingly disagree about whether it is worth the risks.

A current child-custody dispute in Upper St. Clair has gotten national attention, as the father of a 17-year-old boy has asked a family-court judge to block him from playing football.

The boy, whose brother plays football for Case Western University in Cleveland, has suffered at least three concussions. His mother supports his decision to play.

Spivak Law Firm handles all matters involving child custody. We provide strong, compassionate, cost-effective representation in all family-law matters.
