Pennsylvania Family Law Attorney
Devoted to Your Needs

Compassionate attorney helping Pennsylvania families for more than 26 years
Since 1986, Susan E. Murray, with offices in Media, Pennsylvania, has served families in Delaware and Chester Counties in matters of divorce, equitable distribution, and child custody and support. I have a long track record of success mediating and litigating resolutions to family disputes in a fair and equitable manner. Informed by more than 26 years of experience in the financial, legal and personal dynamics of divorce, I can guide you through the often emotional and painful experience of divorce towards a realistic outcome that sustains your material and psychological resources. Especially when children are involved, I work to resolve your dispute fairly and amicably without resorting to court. In cases where there is no alternative to litigation, I fight vigorously to protect your interests.

Attention to the financial and emotional needs of every client
As a former therapist, I understand the emotional burdens as well as the financial costs of family law issues. My approach to your case involves:

  • Individual attention — I recognize that each client has unique financial and emotional needs and limits, and I work diligently to protect your interests in relation to your personal situation. If I believe counseling would be helpful, I recommend this to you. I keep you focused on your goals and help you achieve them as you work through the often arduous process of divorce.
  • Mediation — In the interest of reducing the time, stress and cost of divorce, it is often beneficial to pursue a settlement without litigation. Mediation encourages cooperation in a structured setting through a trained facilitator. I skillfully negotiate to help you obtain an equitable settlement and healthy and fair child custody and support arrangement.
  • Devotion — If it is necessary to pursue litigation in order to reach a just settlement, I am devoted to using my experience to develop compelling trial strategies and fight through the adversarial litigation process to achieve a successful resolution to your case.
