I have handled simple uncontested divorce cases as well as the most complex custody cases. Even though I will try to settle your case to avoid costly litigation, I am more than prepared to take a case to trial and litigate it from beginning to end. While I am a lawyer who has focused on family law disputes, I believe that the collaborative spirit of mediation is the best path for a family to move forward into the next phase as a two-household family. I also have a wide range of experience in litigation, having handled criminal defense matters, real estate transactions, collections cases, appeals and all types of federal cases.
A Skilled And Experienced Courtroom Presence
I am a skilled and aggressive courtroom attorney who has worked in federal courts, Supreme Court, family courts and criminal courts throughout New York City, Nassau County, Suffolk County, Westchester County and Orange County. It’s important to note, however, that the Supreme Court of the state of New York is the only court that handles divorce cases. Each county has its own Supreme Court and the Supreme Court judge is the only person who can legally grant you a divorce. Other family matters will typically end up in family court, which is also in every county.
Here To Guide You Through This Complex Legal Process
While every case is unique, I can skillfully guide your contested divorce or other family law issue through the legal system regardless of the circumstances. I know the judges and how to best tailor our presentation for a successful outcome; however, it is also about being prepared and knowing the law. I draw upon my extensive courtroom experience to explore every resource in even the most complicated cases to resolve your issues as quickly and efficiently as possible.
