We are the largest firm in New York City that devotes its practice exclusively to matrimonial and family law.
Senior executives in New York’s financial services and real estate industries, leaders in the arts and media, distinguished professionals and members of many of America’s most prominent families routinely call on us to work with them in understanding and analyzing their family law concerns, and formulating reasonable and responsible resolutions.
Many family law practitioners claim to have “seen it all” when it comes to complex family issues, but we have a different view. Even if an issue appears similar to one we’ve confronted before, we know that the right solution will be unique for each client. Careful analysis, creative thinking, and a deep understanding of a particular family’s circumstances ground our advice as we guide each client to an individualized, workable solution.
We are skilled negotiators whose cases most often result in settlements, but we are also tough, able, and honest litigators who can try a case aggressively when settlement is unattainable.
We speak for our clients in an informed, dignified, and thoroughly
We safeguard our clients’ identities and privacy.
We are a “go-to” firm for the corporate and trusts and estates lawyers at many prominent New York, national and international firms who want to ensure that their clients have the same first-quality representation on personal matters that they receive on their business matters.
We are often hired by colleagues from other family law firms to serve as arbitrators and mediators in cases they are having difficulty resolving.
We are mindful of our obligation to do more for the profession than simply represent our clients well. We are active members and leaders of bar associations and professional organizations, among them the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the American College of Family Trial Lawyers, the International Academy of Family Lawyers, the Family Law Section of the American Bar Association, the Family Law Sections of the New York and Connecticut State Bar Associations, and the Matrimonial Law Committee of the New York City Bar Association.
We volunteer as lecturers and teachers at continuing education programs for judges, lawyers, appraisers and accountants. Beyond the law, we are board members and active participants in community-based organizations that address issues ranging from the environment to inner-city education to health.
We have earned the highest rating from Martindale-Hubbell, the authoritative resource for peer review of the competence and ethics of legal professionals. Our lawyers are routinely selected for listing in lay publications such as Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers.
We are committed to excellence, professionalism, integrity, and good citizenship. Our reputation for fulfilling that commitment has been earned over decades, and is recognized by our clients, our peers, and the judiciary before whom we practice.
