Your Pittston Partner in Justice.

(570) 654-5030

Honored to serve the greater Pittston area for more than 2 decades.

The Law Office of Girard J. Mecadon

represents the third generation of Mecadon

family businesses in Northeast Pennsylvania.

His grandfather, Michael Carmen Mecadon, owned and operated a strip mine in Old Boston, Jenkins Township in the 40’s. His father, Alfred Mecadon (known as “Chubby” to his many friends) started his plumbing career at the tender age of twelve and opened his plumbing business during his teens. Mecadon Brothers Plumbing and Electrical was founded on Laurel Street in Pittston in 1960. “Chubby” was well known for answering any call at any time. His favorite saying was " no matter the time, my customers need service!” Attorney Mecadon learned by example the meaning of service and is dedicated to honoring his father and serving his clients.


Attorney Mecadon began his legal career with the United States Attorneys office for the middle district of Scranton, Pennsylvania and has been admitted to practice law in state and federal courts since 1991. Presently his law office is located in the very same building on Laurel St. that his dad and his mom worked serving the communities plumbing, electrical and oil needs for over 40 years.  Also, prior to housing the law offices, this Laurel Street location was the home of Cotter’s Crafts and Laurel Street Florist, owned and operated by Jerry’s sister, Judy Cotter Greenwald.

Born and raised in the Wyoming Valley, Attorney Mecadon has a deep seated loyalty to his community as evidenced by  his involvement and leadership in numerous civic and community organizations.
