Cranberry Township divorce attorney Elizabeth Parker GaetaniFamily law is a unique opportunity to pursue justice while understanding that the law must be met with compassion and sensitivity. That’s a concept Cranberry Township divorce attorney Elizabeth Parker Gaetani embraces wholeheartedly.

She also encourages clear and honest communication from the outset so that she is best able to fight for her clients’ rights.

“Attorney-client communications are strictly confidential, so be forthcoming with information that you think might be relevant, even if you are not sure,” she said. “The more I know about you and your unique situation, the better I can advocate for you throughout the process.”
