Mr. Beattie had a focus on law early in life and didn’t stop until he achieved his goal to become an attorney. From humble beginnings in the Mount Oliver and South Side Slopes neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, Mr. Beattie started his education at Western School of Health and Business Careers where he earned an Associates’ Degree/Paralegal Certificate in 1988. Not satisfied stopping there, he went on to earn his Bachelor of Arts in specialized business from Point Park College in 1990 and continued on to receive his Juris Doctorate in 1995 from Duquesne University School of Law.
Twenty years spent in Pittsburgh courts has earned Mr. Beattie significant experience and connections in the Family Division. He is recognized for zealously representing the interests of his clients to gain the best possible results. This reputation has earned such respect; he receives referrals not only from clients but also from the opposing party in a lawsuit. Knowing family and estate matters can be complicated; Mr. Beattie is readily available for his clients by phone and email and can be found in the office in the early morning working for those he represents.
His dedication to a career in law found Mr. Beattie beginning as Clerk for the Honorable Judge Lawrence Kaplan. He moved on to become a Paralegal and then an Associate at Sciullo & Goodyear, P.C. where he found his niche in Family Law and Estate Work. He continues his specialization in family law, estates, wills, trusts, real estate, and appellate cases as an Associate with Thomas A. Will & Associates.
Mr. Beattie is an active member of the Allegheny County Bar Association and Family Law Section of the Allegheny County Bar Association.
When not working for results for his clients, Mr. Beattie loves being a part of the Pittsburgh community. He teaches CCD at St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Baldwin, PA and wrote the bylaws for Thomas Jefferson Youth Baseball as a member of the Pleasant Hills Athletic Association. He is also a member of Transplant Recipients International Organization as a family member.
In his family life, he and his wife, Maryann keep busy with their teen son’s sports and activities. Their family also includes two dogs—a Lhasa Apso and a miniature dachshund.
