She's a Family Law "Rock Star".

I retained Ana Lisa Petrella of Voelker & Kairys this past September of 2018 to assist with my divorce. I considered her based on a strong recommendation from a friend in the legal field. I called her and she literally scheduled to meet me within 1 day. Once we talked in person; within the first 15 minutes it was quite apparent to me that Ana Lisa was like no other attorney. Her strategy, skills, compassion, and desire to truly help clearly explain why people rave about her on the internet. My case is about 1/3 of the way over and i have been so pleased with her i wish I could give her and the VK Firm a 10 - Star Rating. My children's future is in her hands, and i have nothing but complete trust. Simply put - She's a Family Law "Rock Star".

We respect her and appreciate everything she helped us.

Attorney Nicole Kairys helped me and a friend with a very personal issue in 2013. She listened, followed up professionally, and helped us deal with a situation that was not easy. For almost 6 years, Nicole was always there when we needed any questions answered. When our situation came to an end, Nicole showed up to a very private and personal moment to share in our grief. We respect her and appreciate everything she helped us with along the way.

I would highly recommend them for any family law matter.

Very knowledgeable and experienced attorneys. Family law is tough for the client and the attorney involved. Family law, divorce and custody, are full of volatile emotions. Chuck Voelker and Nicole Kairys both are compassionate about the law to help their clients achieve the best possible outcomes. They take time to learn about the families and situations involved. I was well prepared for all possible outcomes when I appeared in court with Nicole and Chuck. They were direct, honest and experienced in what the resolutions may include which may not be what you want or expect. Their experience showed as a true advantage in my cases. Above all they were concerned for myself and my children's well being. I would highly recommend them for any family law matter.

Communication is timely, she's compassionate, and she's very professional.

Ana Lisa Petrella is representing me in my divorce. I was looking for someone who could work with the opposing attorney yet still be firm when needed. Ana Lisa is executing my wishes very well. She listens to me and understands what's important to me and works to get me the outcome that I see as success. I had done plenty of research prior to having a consultation with Ana Lisa, and I understood that no one is ever going to be completely happy with the outcome of a divorce. Ana Lisa lets me know where and when I have a chance of winning and should fight, and where I'll need to be more flexible. Her advice has been spot on, her communication is timely, she's compassionate, and she's very professional. I would recommend her to anyone in a similar situation.

I would recommend their services to anyone that has a need.

I retained their services and from Day 1 I was impressed by their professionalism, timely communication, and judicious use of time. There is always a concern that attorneys will have their best interest and monetary gains at heart. My experience was the complete opposite. They provided me with valuable advice and expertise to navigate my situation And garner a quick resolution that was beneficial for all parties. I will not use another law firm in Pittsburgh as I believe they provided better service than I could have received anywhere else. I would recommend their services to anyone that has a need. In fact, I have already recommended them to several family members and friends and each one of them has expressed their appreciation for helping them find a great partner in their time of need.

Very professional and in control when the opposing lawyer.

Glad I had Nicole Kairys as my divorce lawyer. Nicole was very thorough and thoughtful during this whole process. Nicole was very professional and in control when the opposing lawyer was hot headed and unprofessional. This was a very unpleasant time for me and I was comfortable knowing that Nicole had my back and my best interest.

- Kimberly Bell


I immediately felt such comfort!

I met Nicole Kairys through Second Saturday class to get an idea on what options i had since i was considering a divorce. I immediately felt such comfort with her then, I knew she was the one I wanted to represent me. She answered every question I had, followed up with thoughts and scenarios I never considered, and guided me along the way to protect myself financially, and always made sure I understood what was happening and what could happen. She also gave me “tough love” on ideas I had on a real estate matter I believed to be hopeless, and made it possible thanks to her own networking. My particular divorce was pretty straight forward so from my initial filing to my declaration of divorce, it was 6 months and relatively fast. I also got to see the correspondence she sent to my now ex-husband. She also took the time in explaining things clearly - so that even he had comfort in what was happening. Thank you Nicole, for guiding me along the scary, unknown path of divorce and financial protection.

- Jeri Sweeny


Maintained professionalism throughout all my proceedings.

I felt comfortable with Attorney Kairys knowing that she was looking out for my family's best interest. She maintained professionalism throughout all my proceedings and helped me throughout all my issues. Divorce is an awful thing to have to go through but it is nice to have someone that cares on your side.

Cannot be more grateful to the Voelker & Kairys, LLC

I am a Business Teacher at South Fayette High School. In the fall I reached out to the Voelker & Kairys, LLC firm to request volunteers to conduct mock interviews with the 11th and 12th grade students enrolled in our department's College & Career Planning classes. Mr. Chuck Voelker willingly volunteered his time. After realizing he had a conflict with a court date and our interview date, he asked Mr. Jonathan Voelker to fill in. Again, there was another conflict with our interview date and a scheduled court date. Many businesses at this point would have made their apologies and backed out. Instead, the firm asked another associate, Ms. Ana Lisa Petrella to fill in and she was able to conduct several interviews with our students. Agreeing to conduct mock interviews for us, which are held during the work day, when there is nothing to be gained by the firm, no compensation, or benefit other than getting an opportunity to give back to the community and to further the students' educational experience is quite admirable. Voelker & Kairys, LLC has generously agreed to remain on our contact list for future mock interviews, which occur twice each school year. Volunteering and conducting the mock interviews with our students is an experience that is immeasurable. It allows the students to experience a “real world” interview but also teaches them the value of serving in their community. The school, my department, and our students cannot be more grateful to the Voelker & Kairys, LLC firm for generously donating their time.

To anyone looking for stellar representation, I highly recommend contacting this firm.

I can't thank the staff of Voelker & Kairys enough for the help they've been through my divorce. The legal processes surrounding divorce and child custody were unfamiliar to me, but the entire staff, specifically John Morris, have helped me understand the process all along the way and eliminated the initial fears I had at the beginning of the divorce process. To anyone looking for stellar representation, I highly recommend contacting this firm.

Outstanding in working with our schedule, understanding the urgency. The BEST!

Nicole and her team at Voelker & Kairys update our will and provide two powers of attorney's for us in a timely (rushed) situation prior to my wife and I traveled to Ireland. The staff was outstanding in working with our schedule, understanding the urgency, provided key questions and then pulled everything together so things weren't hanging over us while we traveled-the BEST!

My daughter and I appreciate the work she is doing with her case and will continue to recommend Attorney Kairys to anyone in need of the absolute best representation in the area of family law.
