Gross McGinley Allentown PA Family Law

Family Law

You want someone who can help you find a solution to your unique family situation. Our attorneys take the time to clearly explain the law and your options. We offer sound insights to guide you through your journey to make informed decisions — even when they aren’t easy.

Supporting the Lehigh Valley Community

Our attorneys have represented families in Lehigh County, Northampton County, Carbon County, and beyond. We provide mediation services as an alternative to litigation in family law matters. Plus, our Parenting Coordinator acts as neutral, third party to help families find compromise more quickly and cost-effectively.


We’ll use our range of experience and knowledge to guide and advise you in all legal matters related to uncontested and contested divorce.


We know that custody disputes can be among the most stressful, bitter legal actions. We’ll help you feel at ease with the process and ensure you and your children’s rights are protected.


Little causes more sleepless nights than worries and fears about finances. We’ll work to achieve a fair settlement that brings you peace of mind.


No one should live in fear of physical harm. No one deserves to suffer with false allegations of abuse, either. We understand the urgency of domestic abuse. And whether you’re a victim or you’ve been served with a PFA, we’ll help you navigate the process.

Advising the LGBTQ Community

We’re also passionate about representing the specific and often unique needs of our LGBTQ community. We understand the unique nuances of LGBTQ issues including those related to adoption and surrogacy, prenuptial/ cohabitation agreements, and name changes.

Pre/Post Nuptial Agreements

Pre- and post-nups aren’t a “recipe for divorce” but a smart strategy to protect your finances and assets. We’ll look out for your best interests.

Name Change

Your name connects you to your individuality and identity. Whether you’re changing your name because of divorce, marriage, adoption, gender reassignment, or other reasons, we’ll guide you through the process.
