Russian Speaking Divorce and Family Lawyer
Attorneys who speak Russian fluently are few and far between in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Having Regina as an advocate is a great benefit to clients who primarily speak Russian. They can freely communicate with her about their complex legal matters without the added difficulty of a language barrier. Petrelli Previtera Schimmel welcomes all members of Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian, and other Russian-speaking communities to contact Regina for assistance with their divorce and family-related legal matters.
