Gerald Schorr ("Jerry") is a partner in the firm and devotes his practice to family law, his exclusive area of practice since becoming a member of the Pennsylvania bar in 1984. He co-chairs the Firm's Family Law/Domestic Relations group. His practice involves the negotiation and/or litigation of the full gamut of family law issues, including such complex areas as the valuation of businesses and professional practices in equitable distribution, international custody disputes, and interstate enforcement of support orders. Jerry recently tried a custody dispute over vaccinating a child for COVID-19 to a successful conclusion. He has written many articles on family law issues including, most recently, "Practice Tips: Expert Testimony in COVID-19 Vaccine Cases".

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
