Kellie L. Rahl-Heffner


Practical and reasonable solutions go a long way.

Kellie L. Rahl-Heffner is an experienced family law attorney, guiding individuals through sensitive legal matters including divorce, child custody and guardianship, child support and alimony claims, and protections from abuse (PFAs). She also assists her clients in designing pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements that best preserve family assets.

Kellie is well-versed in the Lehigh and Northampton County family court systems, representing individuals in family law disputes. As an experienced arbitrator, Kellie also counsels families in matters that can best be resolved outside of the courtroom.
