Focused on NY Matrimonial & Family Law

Divorce and family law are known for being some of the most sensitive and volatile aspects of law and for very good reason. Both divorce and family law matters are generally tied into one's assets and property and—more importantly—minor children.

There isn't anything in this world more vulnerable than one's children, income, assets and property. For this reason, whenever you are contending with legal matters of this nature, the person you choose to represent you better have excellent credentials and know what they are doing, because the outcome of your case can affect the rest of your life.

In the absence of domestic violence, we firmly believe that each parent should have the opportunity to mutually contribute to the upbringing and enrichment of their child's life, and we strongly support and encourage this inalienable right.
