Setting the Standard. Getting Results.


About Us

Donald E. McGinnis, Jr., J.D., P.C. was established in 1973 as a general practice firm to serve clients with a need for all types of representation. The firm evolved over the years to offer specialized service in several key areas of the law: divorce and family law, including child custody, child support, spousal support, and post-judgment issues, criminal law and driver’s license appeals and restoration.

With the addition of David J. Chiappelli in 1999 and Lise M. Spresser in 2017, the firm has grown. However, it remains true to its core values of hands-on representation and building productive attorney-client relationships. At McGinnis Chiappelli Spresser P.C., we understand that the process of selecting an attorney can be daunting and overwhelming for someone who is already experiencing significant stress in their personal life. It is our commitment to our clients that we will continue to provide service of the highest quality and the respect that you, as a client, deserve during your period of crisis or need. The members of our firm will continue to exercise the greatest degree of professionalism available anywhere and will work tirelessly to represent the best interests of our clients.

Please feel free to contact us to discuss your legal matter. We believe that knowledge is power when it comes to dealing with the legal system. Our job is to provide you with the information and confidence you need to make informed decisions, both inside and outside of the courtroom.
