Meet Rebecca A. Myers, Divorce Lawyer, Child Custody Attorney and founder of Uncoupling Pittsburgh
I have had an interest in helping families and individuals navigate the difficult issues of separation, divorce, support and custody since long before I began practicing family law. Perhaps it was my background in psychology, or some of my volunteer efforts, but I have always seen the importance of family law practitioners being sensitive to the needs of their clients, throughout what will most likely be a very difficult chapter in their lives.
I have found in the more than a decade I have been practicing family law, that litigation, and the adversarial process, is not for everyone. In an effort to meet the needs of my clients, I completed a mediation training approved by the Association for Conflict Resolution, focused specifically on Family Conflict mediation.
I am also a certified collaborative attorney capable of assisting clients through the collaborative process and I am a member of CLASP and the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals.
Regardless of whether my client wishes to pursue litigation, mediation, or collaboration I strive to be sensitive to their needs and attentive to their requests. I believe that my role as an attorney is to bring a level of transparency to the legal system. My clients should not only know what is going on in their case, but should be comfortable that they understand what each step is and what that means in real world terms.
If you are looking for that type of representation, please contact me.

Often divorce litigation, or even negotiation, requires experts who can analyze financial information and provide expert testimony regarding net incomes, earning capacities, and business valuations.
