“High Swartz is a great firm. Elizabeth Early in particular is spectacular. She is a sharp as a tack and can confidently navigate all aspects of PA’s domestic relations laws. She aggressively defends my interests (and those of my family), but she is also smart enough to realize when a fight is not worth fighting and how to compromise to keep things civil and out of the court room. Liz has been an invaluable resource to me during what has proved to be one of the more challenging aspects of my life. It’s not just Liz, but the entire firm. I’ve had other attorneys work with me, while filling in for Liz, they were great. They listen to me, fully explain my options, and help me formulate the best action plan. I can’t express how great Liz and the whole crew at High Swartz have been. I’d highly recommend them.” – Joseph H.
“I cannot say enough good things about Liz and all of the staff at High Swartz. They are very professional, personable and supportive as they made some of the most difficult times of my life seem not so hard. Thank you all!” – Susan F.
“No one likes getting divorced, but Elizabeth made it way easier than I ever imagined it could be. She was caring and attentive to my concerns and completely handled all the legal stuff so I could focus on more important things. I have referred her to many people who have found themselves going through a divorce and will continue to do so!” – Rebekah D.
“THANK YOU ELIZABETH EARLY!!! You made short work of my divorce. You pretty much held my hand through this process. I am an Electrician not a Lawyer but you made it simple for me to understand, and let me know every step of the way what was happening. You always communicated with me whether by phone, text, or email. i always knew where i stood through this process THANK YOU ELIZABETH EARLY.”
“I reached out to High Swartz for a legal custody issue as I was browsing for counsel and came across this firm online. Liz Early is top notch. High Swartz as a firm is top notch. All staff during our covid trial was very professional, helpful and executed the task needed. The trial (may have been first of 3 custody zoom trials in county history???) was completed at the office with all the needed material, technology and setup her and I needed to get awarded custody to where we saw it fit. A victory for our family here, the High Swartz team and Liz Early. Could not have done it without her. We are forever grateful and highly recommend the firm.” – Michael F.
