Practice Overview:
If you are facing a difficult divorce, custody or support case, you need an experienced and highly qualified family law attorney. For more than 30 years, Linda MacElree (Lynn) has been successfully practicing family law in Chester County. She has helped hundreds of clients reduce their stress and anxiety during this difficult and emotional time by bringing clarity and closure to their cases. Using her extensive legal experience and negotiating skills, Lynn strives to guide her clients to a satisfactory settlement.


Professional Profile:
Linda MacElree (Lynn) is knowledgeable, tenacious, a formidable opponent and passionate about practicing family law. Lynn has been the head of her own boutique law firm concentrating in family law matters since 1987. After clerking for the Honorable Leonard Sugerman, Lynn has practiced for over 30 years, concentrating exclusively in the area of family law in Chester County.

Lynn has a straight-forward approach to cases. In a divorce matter, after determining the marital assets, her goal is to help find solutions to the division of assets and, if appropriate, Lynn will help work out an alimony solution. A negotiated divorce settlement that both clients can live with, although it may not have everything on each party’s wish list, is far better than an equitable distribution or alimony award imposed by a disinterested master or judge.

However, if a negotiated settlement cannot be achieved, Lynn is up to the task of complex litigation. Litigation requires preparation, planning, and an in-depth understanding of the issues and the law as well as knowledge of the parties, the opposing counsel and the fact finder. Lynn has 30 years of experience in family law.
