Our Divorce and Family Law Practice
We offer comprehensive legal counsel in most matters related to divorce and family law, including:
- Child custody and visitation—We’ll help you put workable solutions in place that are in the best interests of your children while protecting your rights as a parent
- Separation agreements—We’ll work with you to establish the terms of a legal separation
- Orders of protection—Our lawyers will advise you regarding protective or restraining orders
- Annulments—When possible, we can help you treat a marriage as if it never legally happened
- Pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements—We’ll help you protect property and other rights when going into a marriage
Our attorneys handle many other controversies involving family law, from child support and alimony disputes to post-judgment modifications of a divorce decree to paternity questions. We can help you determine appropriate value for marital assets, including professional licenses, and represent clients in all types of family court proceedings, including contempt hearings.
We have unique experience successfully handling difficult child custody cases, as well as false accusations of child abuse. We also handle most matters involving Child Protective Services.
We Take On the Tough Cases—And Win!
We often focus on unusual and difficult cases. Our experience with complex family issues set us apart from most other firms that handle matrimonial law cases. We are members of the Matrimonial and Family Law committees of the Nassau County Bar Association, the Suffolk County Bar Association, the Queens County Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association. We have participated in early neutral evaluation programs that have helped mediate and resolve complex divorce cases.
We have also represented men and women in all aspects of negotiated and contested matrimonial and family law matters. We have unique expertise in the numerous legal and factual issues that men and women face in the Supreme Court in divorce proceedings, and in the family courts. Although we handle matrimonial litigation, we strive to amicably resolve matters whenever and wherever possible. In the more complex custody and visitation cases, we often use a male/female attorney team to provide more than one prospective to our clients concerning the issues they face.
