Whether you plan on drawing up a will or estate, filing for bankruptcy or divorce, or even defending some parking (or speeding) tickets, you will need the name and phone number of a lawyer. There are many different types of law, for example, constitutional law, business law, real estate law, estate planning law, criminal law and health care law, so you’ll need to find one to suit your particular needs. Thankfully there are plenty of law firms to choose from in the Scranton area, including these top four.
