Family Court

Navigating Family Court is not for the faint of heart.  Although Pennsylvania Family Law remains the same across its counties, just as every family's situation is unique, each of Pennsylvania's counties has its own Domestic Relations practice and procedure.  With so much at stake, experience matters.

For example, a particular judge in Montgomery County requires a "pre-trial memo" be submitted to Family Court prior to a child custody hearing, whereas a particular judge in Delaware County does not have the same requirement; Philadelphia allows for an expedited custody hearing when appropriate, whereas Bucks County does not provide for the same form of relief; and so forth.  Understanding how these differences can affect a party's case is critical to achieving a favorable outcome, and Joseph D. Lento is a veteran of Family Court. 

By day, Joseph Lento worked in the trenches of Family Court, and at night, he studied the law. He helped countless families while working at Family Court, and went on to become an attorney, dedicating his law practice to continuing the work he started years earlier. Joseph's experience both behind the scenes and on the front lines allows him to understand a client's Family Law matter from all angles, and allows him to find and employ the most effective strategies to get favorable outcomes for any client.

The stakes are always high in Family Law, and Joseph Lento prides himself on getting clients results.  Understanding how each counties' Domestic Relations practice and procedure can critically affect a client's case, Joseph Lento represents Family Law clients throughout Pennsylvania; including, but not limited to, those with Family Law matters in Philadelphia, Montgomery, Delaware, Bucks, and Chester County.
