Lawrence J. Persick
Credited for his ability to resolve complex family law issues, Lawrence (Skip) Persick represents clients involved in divorces, custody disputes and adoptions. His experience also includes cases dealing with juvenile dependency and the termination of parental rights.
Skip has represented the prevailing party in many notable cases including a Berks County decision granting compensatory damages on tort claims raised in the context of a divorce action. The case is believed to be one of the few decisions, if not the only one, granting this relief.
In a case that received national attention, Skip represented the Chester County Department of Children, Youth and Families in state court proceedings relative to the placement of an African-American child for adoption with an African-American family over the objections and collateral law suits of a white foster family.
A former assistant public defender for Chester County, Skip has remained active within the county. He has served as a member of the executive committee of Brian's Run, a Chester County charity that raises funds for physically challenged individuals. He has also been involved in fundraising activities for Chester County Hospital, including the hospital's May Festival
and its Dash for Diabetes and volunteers with the Women’s Resource Center.
Skip also delivers annual talks on young people and the law to various secondary schools in Chester County.
