I enjoy the diversity of my job and welcome the opportunity to assist people during the most difficult times of their lives with empathy and sound legal counsel.
Joining Feldstein Grinberg Lang & McKee in 2006, Lisa Petruzzi is a shareholder in the firm’s Family Law practice, where she handles a broad range of Domestic Law, including divorce, custody, support, adoption, guardianship, equitable distribution, and juvenile matters (including delinquency and dependency). Her practice also includes Dispute Resolution, Mediation, and Collaborative Law,
These areas require additional specialized training, and Lisa has obtained certification to provide these services to her clients. This training is invaluable in assisting clients in solving disputes without taking them to trial, which saves considerable costs and time. In court, she is a formidable opponent, well prepared to secure a favorable outcome for her clients. Lisa has been appointed by judges in Orphan’s Court to act as attorney for alleged incapacitated persons and in Family Division as Guardian Ad Litem for children in high conflict custody matters.
Lisa joined the firm after seven years in small firm/solo practice handling family, domestic, and elder matters, as well as estate planning. She received her Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing and Computers from Robert Morris College in 1988, and her J.D. from the Duquesne University School of Law in 1996. She is an active member of the Allegheny County Bar Association, and has served as Council Member for the Family Law Section, co-chair of the Family Law Section’s Program Committee, and member of the Court Relations Committee. Lisa is a presenter for the Allegheny Bar Association’s Continuing Legal Education program.
Lisa resides in Jefferson Hills with her husband Dan, and their two children.
