STATE COLLEGE, PA – January 18, 2021 – Leech Tishman is pleased to announce the addition of a new attorney to the firm, Michael R. Chilcot, Jr. Chilcot joins the firm as an Associate in the Family Law and Litigation Practice Groups. Chilcot is based in the State College office where he primarily focuses his practice on family and collaborative law and real estate law.
Chilcot maintains a comprehensive family law practice, focusing on all aspects of domestic relations matters, including but not limited to divorce, equitable distribution, custody, support, prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and protection from abuse. He has expertise in both negotiations that occur outside of the courtroom, and in litigating matters. Dedication to helping people navigate family issues began early in Chilcot’s career. While attending law school, he volunteered and interned with various organizations charged with helping clients involved in family law disputes. This work led to Chilcot’s recognition and receipt of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s Community Service Award. Since that time, Chilcot has built on this family law foundation with courtroom experience and pride in his ability to help guide people through challenging times.
Being able to predict outcomes, anticipate issues, and quickly adapt to information are skills that Chilcot brings to his practice. He encourages clients to fully understand their options and combine his guidance with their inner resources to control their own destiny. Chilcot strongly believes in the power of compassion, which is evident not only in his relationships with his clients, but also in how he spends his time away from the office. Chilcot continues his lifelong interest in animal welfare as a dedicated Board Member for Centre County PAWS.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Michael to the firm,” said Pete A. Fuscaldo, Leech Tishman’s managing partner. “His depth of experience in the field of family law will be a great addition to Leech Tishman’s expanding Family Law practice as well as our growing State College, PA office.”
