Sweeney & Neary, LLP is pleased to announce that Colleen M. Neary and Patrick T. Daley have been selected for inclusion in the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® in the area of family law. Additionally, the firm itself was given a “Tier 1” ranking in Family Law in the Philadelphia region.

First published in 1983, Best Lawyers uses peer reviews to select the top-rated attorneys in their fields in each geographic area. Receiving a tier designation reflects the high level of respect a firm has earned among other leading lawyers and clients in the same communities and the same practice areas for their abilities, their professionalism and their integrity.

Ms. Neary, the firm’s co-founder and managing partner, has appeared annually in the publication since 2011, receiving the honor of Lawyer of the Year in 2016.  This is Mr. Daley's first recognition by Best Lawyers.  Both attorneys concentrate their practice on domestic relations matters, primarily handling complex divorce, high-income alimony/spousal support, complex child support, and high-conflict child custody cases.
