Unlike other large firms that dabble in multiple practice areas, we are
solely dedicated to family law and divorce issues. When you retain the representation of a

team is equipped with the knowledge and experience that you need in order
to reach an amicable resolution for your case.
Why Hire Our Firm?
Our practice is solely dedicated to Divorce and Family law. For any area of law, the ability to have a litigator in your corner that
specializes in one particular area of the law is a massive advantage to
you and your case. Our sole purpose and focus is to help clients with
their family law issues. That is all that we do. However, we are affiliated
with other very successful law firms that have practices which cover all
types of law. Always have a specialized expert on your case is our "motto
Our fee structure, combined with our 33 years of matrimonial experience
is unique. For our uncontested divorces, we charge low flat fees. Even if the other
spouse refuses to sign the consent form for the divorce, our office can
still get you divorced. Further, when we start an uncontested divorce
and the other side hires an attorney (this happens in only about 3% of
our cases) we charge a fee of $500 to try to negotiate a simple divorce
settlement with opposing counsel. Compare this $500 fee to other law firms'
fees of $3500 to $7500 dollars for the same service. Should an uncontested
divorce turn into a fully contested divorce, all payments previously made
under your uncontested divorce are credited to the contested retainer.
For our contested divorces we have a schedule of flat fees unlike any other
established law firm. We do not have hourly rates and clients are not billed for phone calls, etc.
Time it takes to get the divorce: No lawyer or law firm gets your divorce faster than us. With an uncontested
divorce, we get all of your information over the phone and will have your
documents ready for you on
the day of your appointment. According to the matrimonial clerk's office, a large percentage of
divorces submitted by law firms are rejected due to inaccuracies in paperwork.
Our office is committed to getting the divorce done, whether contested
or uncontested, faster than any other New York matrimonial firm. We accomplish
this by employing staff to look over all paperwork and purchase index
numbers every day and file divorce papers in the appropriate county. For
even your simplest uncontested divorce, each step of the process is handled
by a specialized attorney in our office (not secretary or paralegal).
When you first retain our office, we select the appropriate county for
your uncontested divorce. Sometimes this means choosing a different county
than where you currently reside. This step is important as each county
has special rules and laws that must be followed and have an effect on
your case. We select the one most suited to your needs and your case.
Choosing the wrong county may have a major impact on your divorce case.
While hard to believe, choosing the geographic forum where your case is
presented is of the utmost importance and we will make sure the right
county is chosen for you.
Our office subscribes to a service that provides every noteworthy legal
decision on a weekly basis in the field of Matrimonial and Family law. As an office, we review all the latest decisions and implement them into
the strategy of our current cases. We do this often at 9 or 10 pm at night;
long after other law firms have gone home for the day.
Total commitment to our clients exemplified by our consistent attendance
at all continuing legal education programs where all of the latest legal issues and alternative strategies are discussed.
We are always searching to find a new case to support our client's interest.
In our 33 years of existence, our firm has a spotless record with the New
York State Bar Association. This is quite a feat since we handle over 700 cases each year.
Our priority is our client- not our pocketbook or ego. We believe in quality, professional and competent services to quickly
bring your divorce to an end so you may move on to the next aspect of
your life. We look for the least expensive way to achieve this goal, sometimes
incorporating the use of family court proceedings instead of solely relying
on the divorce court. We often work against our own financial interest
to ensure money stays in our clients pocket. This policy is the reason
that over 75 % of our clients are referred by previous clients and the
reason why we do over 400 divorces and annulments a year. Oftentimes,
clients come to our office having already started their divorce at another
law firm. They retain us owing their old firm between $8,000 and $25,000.
We finish the case for a small fraction of that amount, even though we
often end up doing the majority of the work. As an example, we had a client
who paid their lawyer a $6,000 retainer and owed him $8,000 in attorney's
fees. That lawyer had failed to make a single court appearance. We charged
a $2,750 retainer and resolved all issues without forcing the client to
pay an additional penny.
