A Strong Work Ethic And Compassion To Help You Achieve Your Goals

I Look Forward To Helping You With All Your Legal Needs

When you are seeking an attorney dedicated to your best interests, call my law firm, DCP Law Office, LLC. I am attorney Denise C. Pekelnicky. I founded my firm to provide straightforward legal counsel, advice and prompt solutions for my clients in a range of legal issues.

Assistance For Your Real Estate Transactions

Buying and selling your home, a rental property or a property for a business can be nerve-racking. There are many items to consider, and timing can be a major consideration, especially if you are looking to buy and sell in the same day. Legal representation can help facilitate all the financing, filing and deed requirements as well as relieve the pressure from you as you are busy packing and preparing for the next stage of your journey. While one attorney can represent both the buyer and seller in a real estate transaction, it always requires a waiver in writing. I will never represent both parties, as each party should always feel as if their representative is only looking out for their best interests.

Problem-Solving Focus For Family Law Matters

I work with many aspects of family law concerns. Broadly, you can expect my help in these types of matters:

  • Divorce
  • Custody
  • Child support
  • Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • Adoptions
  • Guardianship
  • Paternity

Sensible solutions are a phone call away.

Dispute Resolution Through Collaborative Law

Collaborative law can be useful for all types of disputes, including divorce, custody, employment disputes, contract disputes and all litigation. Currently, the most common usage in Erie County is for divorce and custody. It is my belief that all actions are subject to settlement, and collaborative law is one method to achieve that result. Anyone who practices collaborative law must be trained.

In collaborative situations, the parties and attorneys work together as a team to resolve all issues in the matter. This team may include financial professionals, coaches and mental health professionals. The collaborative process is not mediation. In fact, it is much more client-driven. In a collaborative situation, the parties sign a collaborative agreement in which parties agree that they will not utilize the court system in an adversarial manner. The parties agree in writing to cooperate with each other and their respective counsel. There is still a client-attorney relationship between each party and their attorney. The caveat is that if the parties turn to the adversarial process, then the collaborative process terminates. Both parties must then obtain new counsel. This result is rare. The success rate of the collaborative law is very high, specifically in divorce situations.
