Attorney Marshall Chriswell
Chriswell Law Offices is a general civil practice which serves individuals and small businesses in Indiana County and the surrounding area.
I formed this law firm because I believe a good lawyer should form strong relationships with his clients, and be available to counsel them through all of the changes, good or bad, that come along in their lives.
For this reason, I have developed my skills in a broad range of legal areas, some of which include: real estate, estate planning, business law, civil litigation, property disputes, divorce, child custody, and support.
For a list of some of the other issues I handle, see my Practice Areas page. For cases I don't handle, I am always willing to help clients find an attorney who is right for them.
Simply put, my goal is to be your lawyer for life.
