Our divorce lawyers get you to the end of the tunnel
No one goes into a marriage planning to get a divorce but unfortunately with about 50% of marriages, that is what happens. Whether your divorce is amicable or not our divorce attorneys can help you through the process. When hiring a divorce lawyer, the most important thing is to choose someone you are comfortable with and can trust. Someone whom you can tell your story to. Our attorneys are trustworthy and personable. They are firm but fair negotiators but aggressive in the courtroom. Our team will offer you divorce counsel that helps you to manage expectations while also continuing to fight for what you deserve.
We advocate for the child in family court
The well-being of the children is always our top priority in family court. Issues of child custody, child support, visitation, and child protective proceedings require great levels of care to protect the children. Our family attorneys are experienced in this kind of sensitivity and child advocacy.
Prenuptial agreements are not just for the rich
Did you know a prenup can answer so many more questions than just “How do we split the money if we divorce?” Our matrimonial attorneys can help you draft a contract that lays out everything from the division of assets in the event of a divorce to how you will invest in projects and business while you are married, how to divide marital financial responsibilities and more. Prenups (and postnups) are a great way to not only protect yourself in the event of a divorce but also to set expectations for your marriage.
The law can help you grow your family
Our law firm has both adoption attorneys and surrogacy lawyers to help you grow your family. New York State adoption laws can be tricky. Whether you are adopting through the foster care system, an agency, have a private adoption, or are a stepparent we can help you through every step of the adoption process. Until recently surrogacy was not an option to grow your family in the state of New York. When this law changed our firm knew how important it would be to have fertility attorneys ready to help expectant parents. Our fertility and surrogacy law team are ready to help you have a child.
