Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently assisted a client with a name change in the Berks County Court of Common Pleas. Our client came to Attorney McAllister seeking to change both her first and last name. Attorney McAllister was able to discuss the process with our client, and she was able to file the proper paperwork with the Court, as well as proper publication of the notice of the hearing in the Reading Eagle and the Berks County Bar Journal.

Attorney McAllister also successfully prepared his client for the day of the court hearing, since our client had to testify on the witness stand as to some of the facts related to the name change. Ultimately, the Judge granted the request, and our client was provided with a Court Order that same day officially changing her name.

The client was very happy that she had the services of Attorney McAllister to help her navigate the complicated process of changing her name through the Berks County Court of Common Pleas.
