For Nearly 40 Years, Silverblatt, DeCosmo & Shotto Has Helped Our Clients Navigate Through Divorce And Related Matters.
Divorce is mostly a tense and overwhelming affair. Individuals tend to want the process to end as quickly as possible. As a result, it is common to make decisions rashly — and unwisely.
The choices you make during divorce proceedings have long-lasting consequences. They set the foundation for your financial independence. They dictate the nature of your relationships with your children. For these reasons, it is important to retain an experienced and objective lawyer who knows how to protect your interests and your rights.
For nearly four decades, the attorneys at Silverblatt, DeCosmo & Shotto have dedicated themselves to the practice of family law. Serving the Wilkes-Barre area and throughout eastern Pennsylvania, we pride ourselves on offering support to individuals when they need it most. Arthur Silverblatt is the only attorney in Northeastern Pennsylvania who is a member of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
We understand that family matters are among the most complex and sensitive legal matters. In many circumstances, the lives of those involved are completely redefined. Count on us to work hard for you, offering the clear legal advice and experienced guidance you need at every step of the legal proceedings.
Our firm emphasizes resolution. In Pennsylvania, if spouses cannot agree to terms, the courts assume a great deal of power over their lives. A judge will decide how one’s assets are divided. A judge will decide which parent retains custody.
We will strive to keep the decisions in your hands. We are skilled in negotiating favorable outcomes with opposing counsel, while ensuring that your financial interests and parenting rights are upheld. Nevertheless, if matters cannot be decided out of court, we are always ready to represent you at trial — as we have done so for other clients many times, with a great deal of success.
I do have to say Silverblatt, DeCosmo & Shotto are by far the best law firm I have ever worked with. I appreciate everything that Arthur and Nina did in my case. I can’t say enough good things about you all. In the future, if I need legal representation back in that area, Silverblatt, DeCosmo & Shotto will be my first call. Thank you again.
Atty. Silverblatt provided me with exceptional representation during my separation and divorce. Always pragmatic, he gave me sound legal advice concerning all aspects of my divorce including, but certainly not limited to, custody, equitable distribution of property, and child support. His extensive expertise proved invaluable as I faced complex issues regarding investment properties, pensions, and childcare provisions. That said, I am most appreciative of his compassion and reassurance as I struggled to work through the most emotional and tumultuous experience of my life. Without reservation, I recommend Attorney Art Silverblatt to any friend who finds herself in a similar situation.
Well, now that my divorce is behind me I can tell you I was more than happy with this firm. Every time I called Silverblatt, DeCosmo & Shotto, Arthur called me back. Not someone else on his behalf. In our initial meeting, he told me what it would cost to represent me based on the circumstances of my case. Well, those circumstances changed multiple times making my case more complex. At the final meeting, I asked Arthur how much I owed him for the additional effort by him and his team that was outside the original agreement. He told me NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. This firm did what they said they would when they committed to do it, for the price they said they would do it for.
I recently retained attorney Silverblatt for his professional services and was very pleased with his professional manner, attention to detail, and his frequent communication with me. He also did exactly want I hired him to do for the amount quoted, even though I know there was more involved than initially expected. I would highly recommend him.
