What Remedies Can Provide Faster Protection During a Divorce?
Joseph R. Williams, Pittsburgh divorce attorney and Pollock Begg partner, discusses how to receive protection quickly during divorce proceedings. A Protection from Abuse filing, or PFA, allows you to have access to the courtroom in an expedient manner. Within 10 days, you receive a hearing which can give you some interim relief you might be seeking prior your divorce being finalized.
Williams joined Pollock Begg as a law clerk in 2008, was promoted to associate in 2009 after being admitted to the bar, and joined the leadership ranks as partner in 2014. His rapid climb has not gone unnoticed by his colleagues and peers. Williams has been named to the Pennsylvania Super Lawyers Rising Stars list every year since 2012. In 2013, he was named to Lawyers on the Fast Track by The Legal Intelligencer, an honor bestowed upon just 38 attorneys statewide. In 2017, Williams received the Outstanding Young Lawyer Award from the Allegheny County Bar Association. Recently, Williams added the honor of consecutive listings in the Best Lawyers in America to his honors as well.
