Matrimonial And Family Law

Our matrimonial and family law attorneys and support staff understand the emotional stress and concerns faced when family issues arise and provide personal attention and skilled services to obtain the best possible result.

We maintain regular communication with our clients and provide them with a copy of any document we generate or receive. In addition, our attorneys have a reputation for problem-solving in cases in an effort to reduce the potentially high emotional and financial costs that a lengthy, litigated matter may entail. As a result, a concerted effort is made with every case to achieve a positive outcome through agreement. Unfortunately, however, sometimes that agreement cannot be reached initially, at least without some form of court intervention, if not a trial or appeal.

Our matrimonial and family law team is willing to spend time with our clients to discuss their various options and strategies in their cases. Given our firm’s abundance of practice areas, we are equipped to provide continuity of service when there may be additional legal situations. Such as when a matrimonial client is charged with a crime or if there are issues relative to personal injury actions, estate planning, or real estate that pertain to a family law issue. We can assist clients through traditional representation, including litigation through trial if necessary. We also offer alternative dispute resolution, strictly focused on out-of-court settlements through mediation and collaborative law.

In the area of divorce and separation, we comprehensively address all issues arising in a marriage, which include:

  • Custody and visitation arrangements,
  • Child and spousal support issues (may involve health insurance, uninsured medical expenses, daycare costs, higher education expenses, and tax issues),
  • Equitable distribution of marital property and debts (may necessitate an analysis of the value of a business entity or enhanced earning capacity due to a degree, certification, or license acquired during the marriage,

In Family Court, we represent clients with custody and access issues, child and spousal support matters, paternity cases, family offense issues, and child protective proceedings. In both Supreme Court and Family Court, we also regularly assist clients in enforcing or modifying their agreements and court orders.

Regardless of the issues, we strive to develop working relationships with our clients based on consistent and honest communication. We have found this results in productive attorney-client relationships and excellent results.
