At the Law Offices of Jennifer J. Riley, our dedicated team of attorneys is committed to guiding clients through life's transitions. Whether you are going through a divorce, or are a parent seeking more substantial custody rights with your children, we personalize our legal service to your personal needs. We provide free consultations to help you learn your legal rights to help you make decisions.
Attorney Riley founded the Firm in 2013 with the intention to create a firm of unique attorneys and administrative staff members who genuinely care. She hires attorneys who are tough litigators, but who are also kind and compassionate and always first committed to helping their clients negotiate amicable settlements before resorting to litigation. Every case is treated with the same level of respect and attention, whether a divorce with complex property distribution, or a basic no-fault, no-asset divorce. The attorneys and staff at the Firm strive to provide high quality, compassionate legal services to all clients.
Facing divorce or another family law issue is tough. Does this sound like you? You’re frustrated, angry or confused. You face the uncertain prospect of what the future holds for your relationship with your children. You wonder how this will affect you financially. You’re concerned about the talk that will take place about you around the water cooler at work or among your circle of friends and family. Add to these feelings the anger you may feel toward your spouse or the other parent; the bitterness that replaced the once unconditional love that existed between you. The feeling of betrayal that now stays with you from the time you wake up in the morning until the time you go to bed at night. This confusion, anger and frustration can lead to poor decision-making during a time when every decision can have a huge impact on your future and the future of your relationship with your children. You are not alone if you have experienced these feelings or if you want to protect yourself from these experiences.
We know. We’ve been there, done that, and we can help you! Our attorneys understand the legal as well as the emotional and financial implications of a family law court case.
Our office has represented many high income, self employed business owners and/or professionals including sports figures with complex support and equitable distribution cases. We are well versed in the language of corporate compensation.
Some family law firms will not accept cases that involve child custody or other common family law issues. Our family law firm provides comprehensive legal advice for all Pennsylvania family law issues, including: divorce, equitable distribution of marital property and debts, spousal support, APL and alimony, prenuptial agreements, paternity and child support, child custody, step-parent adoption, and issues impacting LGBTQ couples and individuals.
Other family law firms may refuse to take on a case if there is the possibility that the case would not settle. Our divorce lawyers will not abandon you if your case is not resolved by a settlement agreement or consent order of court. Our family law attorneys are known for being experienced trial lawyers who are willing to take a case to trial if justice for our clients and their children requires such action. We believe that our skills as experienced family law trial attorneys in Montgomery County, Chester County, Bucks County and Delaware County encourage the opposing attorneys to offer fair settlement proposals that will allow for peaceful resolution of our clients’ cases in many situations.
Unless you have no assets, no debt, and no minor children, you may end up giving away much more than you are legally obligated to. Hiring the wrong attorney or law firm can cause you to incur unnecessary costs. Our office employs junior associates, paralegals and law school clerks to help our senior attorneys manage clients’ cases at affordable rates.

Very pleased with Ms. Riley's Legal Help at a critical time
“I hired Jennifer Riley to help with divorce procedures. I had interviewed several other lawyers, and chose her. One of the other lawyers I considered clearly would not have been a good choice for any woman to hire in a similar situation. But Jennifer was a good choice. She gave excellent advice and showed great understanding and compassion of the difficult situation at a critical time.”

Want a Good Lawyer, Jennifer is the way to go
“Jennifer is the BEST. I contacted her in reference for my divorce. I was living in Arizona at the time and we spoke for an hour over the phone and I hired her on the spot. My spouse had moved back to AP and I was still in Arizona. This could have been very difficult but Jennifer made it so doable. She worked very hard for me, the situation was not a good one. My spouse was not an easy person to deal with and his lawyer wasn't much better. She is very compassionate and understanding. She goes that extra mile to get the right results. I cannot say enough good things about how she handled everything. I not only got the results I was looking for but she changed my whole view on who lawyers are. If you want someone who fights for what is right, Jennifer is the one to have on your side. I thank God every day for what she has done for me, she and her firm are amazing. ”

Thank you, Jennifer J. Riley! You Saved My Life!!
“I cannot begin to say how much I appreciate everything that Jennifer did for me when I was trying to find a reliable lawyer to help me go through everything that needed to be done for my divorce.
I had been with my ex-husband for 50 years (dated for 4 years - married for 46 years). In 2011, I knew it was time for me to ask for a divorce. At 65, I began looking for the attorney who would help me.
On the first visit I had with Jennifer, I knew she was the one, and the only one, who could help me. I cannot say enough good things about Jennifer. She helped me get through a very difficult time in my life. I could not have made it without her!!!
There are not enough words to say how wonderful Jennifer is... caring, sincere, reliable. helpful and professional are only a few. I highly recommend Jennifer to one and all !!!”

Robert - March 2019
“I enjoyed working with Jennifer and her staff are among the best. I've found Jennifer to be a fierce defender and protector of her client's rights. She is not one that would allow you to put yourself in jeopardy and in harms way. If your opponent bites, she devours your opponent with no mercy. Even if you are not knowledgeable on the subject matter, she always takes the time to educate you on the law, presents you with options, and gives you her recommendations. She is timely, thorough and attentive. She can be trusted to represent your interests and only your interests alone. Although legal cases are a frightening and protracted matter that breeds the feeling of seriousness and doubts, however, Jennifer embodies the meaning of "let's have fun and get the job done!" She surely has gotten the job done for me. You shall look no further, hire Jennifer. I promise you, you won't regret your decision. ”
