Divorce is a very private and sensitive matter. The same is true for DUI incidents and criminal charges. Legal proceedings can be intimidating and stressful, with an uncertain outcome that may have a big impact on you and your family, and many aspects of your future.
At Bentley, Gibson, Kopecki, Smith, P.C., we are sympathetic to what you're going through and we are committed to making a positive difference in the outcome. As a small firm of dedicated and caring attorneys, we are able to provide reliable and responsive attention to every client and a thorough and tailored approach to your legal matters. As experienced lawyers, we can faithfully and capably defend your interests.
Our Reading family law and criminal defense firm has three convenient offices to serve the Berks County, Lancaster County and Lebanon County areas.
Committed To Making A Difference
We believe that our firm is unique in our approach to the law and our service to clients. Whether you are dealing with a divorce or family law issue, facing the consequences of a DUI arrest or responding to criminal charges, we address both the emotional aspects and the legal issues. This holistic approach helps to put you at ease so that you can think clearly about your priorities and make informed decisions about matters with immediate and future ramifications.
- We are counselors — Family matters and criminal charges have personal and emotional elements. Having gone through similar family law situations in their own lives, our attorneys are attuned to your concerns and the potential ramifications. We work to build trust through honest and practical advice.
- We are problem solvers — It is in our nature to focus on real solutions rather than fanning the flames of conflict or taking the other party's first offer. You can count on us to listen to your story and to respond with creative suggestions, unique strategies and a commitment to the most favorable result in settlement or plea negotiations.
- We are litigators — Sometimes court is the only option. Our attorneys have more actual trial experience than any firm in the Reading area, with thousands of courtroom days between us. We are not afraid to go to court to fight for your freedom, your parental rights or your financial interests.
Comprehensive, Compassionate And Aggressive Legal Counsel
When contacted early in the process, we can often intervene to limit the damage of an arrest or prevent the escalation of family law conflicts. We spend a lot of time with clients at the beginning of the case to understand the circumstances and explore different options and strategies. We want you to be comfortable with the approach and satisfied with the outcome.
We understand that you are going through a tough time — your nerves are raw, your trust level is low, and you may feel hopeless or helpless. For this reason, we offer a free 30-minute initial consultation to "try us out" and decide for yourself if we are really hearing you and if we can really help.
