Divorce, child custody disputes, and orders for Protection from Abuse (PFA) can present some of the most daunting and impactful effects on your life, your rights, and your time with your children. These issues are handled in what is commonly referred to as "Family Court." Nobody ever plans on having to face these circumstances or other family strife, and the effects are ultimately felt by all - parents, children, and others alike. The family court system is not designed to be user-friendly. You need competent legal representation by counsel who knows the system, knows the players, and has the skill and experience to facilitate a beneficial final outcome for you.
Attorney Jaime Hickton - one of the founding partners of HSLG - has tenaciously advocated for clients in Family Court in numerous different capacities. She has litigated hundreds of motions, defended in custody trials, negotiated settlements in both divorce and custody, and has represented individuals in PFA hearings in counties all over Western Pennsylvania. Attorney Hickton has also advocated for clients in adoption proceedings. Attorney Hickton applies practical life experience and professional skill to maximize her clients' opportunities and assist them to positive outcomes in these sensitive matters.
