Attorney Abele Iacobelli is a founding partner of Wallitsch & Iacobelli, LLP, in Allentown, Pennsylvania. He brings more than 20 years of family law experience in the Lehigh Valley to every family law dispute he handles. Family law matters are highly personal. For that reason, Abele listens to the concerns, goals and desires of each client before analyzing the potential options to achieve the best possible results to serve the goals of his clients. 
Mr. Iacobelli knew from an early age that he wanted to be a lawyer. He always wanted to help people. He was drawn to the practice of law for the opportunity the law provides for lawyers to help individuals through a difficult time. After graduating from Villanova University School of Law in 1997, Abele realized his dream of practicing law. For more than two decades he has primarily focused on family law. However, he knows that family law issues can involve and touch upon many other related areas of the law, such as estate planning, real estate and tax matters.
He understands the importance of preparation and attention to detail. To continue to grow as a dedicated attorney, he studied to earn his master's degree in taxation law (LL.M) and certificate in estate planning. He draws on his substantial experience and knowledge of the law to provide well-rounded legal guidance, aggressive advocacy and straightforward personal service to achieve the optimal outcome possible for each client he serves. 
All along the way, Mr. Iacobelli remains responsive to client concerns. He provides a cost-benefit analysis to each potential legal option. In helping clients through a tough time, the individual goals and concerns of clients remain paramount to help ensure that solutions are tailored to the needs of each client.
