What Our Clients Say

“The service we received from Barbera Law firm was excellent. We appreciated all the time & effort Mr. Barbera put into resolving our case. We would retain Barbera Law firm in the future if needed, and would highly recommend them to anyone in need of superior services.”
- Dorothy & Dana
“Attorney Svonavec’s legal counsel was invaluable to me when I was faced with entering the Pennsylvania Criminal Justice System. He explained things to me in a manner that I could understand and that put me at ease, as well as kept me updated as my case made its way through the system. Attorney Svonavec’s commitment to my case and the passion at which he advocated for me as his client is unparalleled, and I would absolutely enlist his services again if necessary!”
- Matthew
“It has been an overall excellent experience working with them in the past year. Attorney Matthew G. Melvin and para-legal Lisa McGuire worked with me on handling a friend’s estate that I was executor of. They provided excellent guidance, answered all my questions, and made themselves available to me when I needed them. Everything they did was handled in a timely and professional manner. I would recommend them for handling an estate.”
