Law Offices of Avram Y. Rosen

Why Attorney Rosen Is the Right Pittsburgh Family Attorney for You

In the worst of times, you deserve the best. Founded more than ten years ago, the Law Offices of Avram Y. Rosen has been devoted exclusively to family law. We handle all aspects of the divorce process, equitable distribution, custody, PFA's, support and all other family law matters. At our firm, you won't be handed off to a new associate or to a paralegal asking you to re-tell your story again. Instead, you will get personal and sophisticated attention from your attorney and your paralegal. Our firm structure allows us to be both efficient and attentive.

Attorney Avram Rosen

Avram has been practicing family law exclusively since 1999. He is a member of the Matrimonial Inns of Court, the Allegheny County Bar Association Family Section, the Washington County Bar Association Family Section and the Pennsylvania Bar Association Family Law Division. Avram maintains offices in Allegheny and Washington Counties, serving clients throughout several areas of Pittsburgh. Avram's wealth of experience and expertise are at your disposal and we answer communications promptly.

He has seen it all and will tell it to you straight. Avram is able to settle most cases, but litigates aggressively when necessary.Our clients appreciate his ability to clearly explain legal concepts and strategies in working toward positive results.

Avram is a 1985 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison (philosophy major) and a 1988 graduate of the University of Michigan School of Law (earning a JD). At Michigan, he was lauded by legendary Supreme Court justice William J. Brennan, Jr. He first practiced at Reed Smith, but large firm culture is not for him. He has concentrated his practice on family law for more than ten years. Since 1999, Avram has counseled and zealously represented many clients through divorce, support, alimony, custody, relocation, and PFA proceedings, while pursuing the highest standards.

Avram was raised in Chicago, but moved to Pittsburgh in 1988. This means that he has been able to celebrate both of the most recent Stanley Cups. Avram's wife, Ellen, is a talented IT asset for the firm. Family law is the most personal and sensitive area of law. It is important that you feel personally and professionally compatible with your divorce, custody or support attorney. A good attorney should make you feel informed, purposeful and comfortable. So, we encourage potential clients to take their time and to meet and talk with us before making any decisions.

Paralegal Stacey Livengood

Stacey has been with us since 2001. Do not underestimate the importance of office staff. Many of your interactions with any firm will be with the staff. When you call us, you first get Stacey. Stacey has become a vital center of kindness, support, and wisdom to many clients. Her years of expertise and experience are also at your disposal in your legal matters.

Through years of practice, Stacey and Avram have developed an almost telepathic rapport. This means that you can ask Avram questions even when he is not around. Stacey's hours are 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. Before joining us, Stacey obtained her degree in Paralegal Studies and worked at various firms that could not compare to ours. She was raised on a farm, so nothing fazes her.

Stacey and her husband Eric are the parents of twin boys. They also have two golden doodles, Sophie and Sadie.
