SUSQUEHANNA LAW GROUP, Inc.

(Formerly Fetter McDermott, Inc.)



Welcome.  Our website is undergoing revision.  In the meantime, here are the basics:

Our firm was founded in November, 2008 under the name "Fetter McDermott, Inc."  Co-owners Joel McDermott, Esq. and Patricia Shipman, Esq. recently decided to change the name of the firm; rather than have our names above the door, we wanted to reflect our commitment to serving our neighbors in the Susquehanna Valley.  We chose "Susquehanna Law Group, Inc."  If you think you might need an attorney, give us a call at (570) 601-6636.

Our Team

In addition to the owners (McDermott and Shipman), we recently acquired the legal talents of Jennifer Ayers, Esq.  We and our excellent staff (Lauren Cohick and Jennifer West) look forward to helping you. 

Practice Areas

We can help most people with most legal problems.  If we can't help you, we'll explain why and try to put you in contact with someone who can.  Generally, our main practice areas are:

Bankruptcy - We'll examine your situation and let you know whether bankruptcy is right for you, or whether some other solution to your situation is possible.  We also help a lot of people with credit card litigation.

Family law - We have a strong background in all aspects of family law (including adoption, custody agreements, custody litigation, divorce, support, dependency issues, filing or defending termination of parental rights petitions, powers of attorney, guardianships, et cetera).  We offer free initial consultations and, once you have chosen us as your attorneys, we provide zealous advocacy and representation on your behalf.

Criminal Defense - We are actively representing defendants in criminal cases ranging from minor to major.  Recent years have brought us a number of clients facing the loss of their CDL and their career due to DUI charges.  It has been greatly satisfying to help many of those clients keep their CDL and their job.  If you've been arrested or served with a summons, contact us for a free consultation. 

Social Security Disability - The attorneys at Susquehanna Law Group have more than 20 combined years of experience representing clients in Social Security hearings and appeals.  We know the law, and we get to know our clients.  If you are disabled and unable to work, call us for a free consultation.

Estate Planning and Administration - We can help you prepare your will, Power of Attorney, and a living will, among other estate planning and end-of-life documents.  We also handle estate administration, providing you with knowledgeable guidance and caring service so that you can focus on honoring and grieving for your loved one.
