Pittsburgh Divorce Attorney
Helping You With A New Beginning
Getting divorced can produce intense stress and emotional turmoil. Yet during this unsettling time, you must make important decisions that will affect your life for years to come. Guidance by an experienced family law attorney can help you deal with the many concerns you have.
My name is Mary Bower Sheats, a family law attorney who has been helping residents of Pennsylvania resolve challenging legal problems for more than three decades. I consider myself to be a compassionate counselor, dealing with the many emotional, financial and practical challenges they face. At the same time, I am an advocate who is fully committed to protecting my clients’ rights and interests. I want to help you make a successful transition to life after divorce.

Focused On Your Future
When you come to my office to discuss your case, I will listen closely as you describe your family, your financial situation and your goals. I will then develop a plan designed to obtain your divorce and resolve related issues in a timely and efficient manner. Often, this involves negotiating a settlement with the opposing attorney. This process can give you greater control over the settlement you obtain and keep legal costs reasonable. If necessary, however, I will be prepared to provide assertive representation in court to protect your rights.
Child Visitation Lawyer
In Pennsylvania, courts decide issues involving child custody and visitation in ways that are in the “best interest” of the child. That said, an experienced family lawyer can make a difference in how a judge perceives what is truly in a child’s best interest. I will use my knowledge and advocacy skills to protect your rights at all stages of the legal process.
