Resolving Divorce Matters for New York Clients


Going through a divorce is stressful. People often have conflicting concerns regarding their family and finances. In addition to the emotional strain, many legal issues must also be addressed. I understand families are working through a difficult time and often have many questions about the future. I have over 28 years of experience in divorce law helping clients find effective resolutions to divorce cases, both in and out of court. At my firm, you will receive solid legal counsel to help you understand the options available, and guidance to make the best decisions for your future.

Effective October, 2010 New York courts now recognize a no-fault ground for divorce.
Other new provisions impact the method of calculation of support awards a court may issue as well.


Understanding Each Client's Unique Set of Goals

After a detailed discussion regarding your case, I can begin to understand what is most important to you and help you prioritize your goals. I will be there for you throughout the entire process, and will work to help you resolve these matters as efficiently as possible.

I take the time to understand your situation, to help you achieve your goals as the case moves forward. After we have discussed your case, I will guide you through your lawsuit as efficiently and painlessly as possible, considering such issues as:

  • Income and expenses
  • Separate and marital property
  • Negotiation techniques to achieve fair asset and debt division
  • Dispute resolution
  • Separation and divorce for same-sex couples


In Court or Out of Court

I strive to resolve your case in a timely manner, keeping an eye on expenses. I encourage my clients to try and resolve their matters before going to court, if possible. Agreements reached before going into the courtroom stand a better chance of benefiting everyone, including the children.


One of the ways I assist clients to come to an agreement outside of the courtroom is through collaborative law. Collaborative law is an alternative dispute method where the parties resolve the case out of court with a team of divorce experienced professionals, in a cost effective way. I have experience with the collaborative law process. When important decisions are made together, it helps to create lasting agreements for all sides.
