Attorney Profile: Donald Mastrodomenico
Our practice is solely dedicated to Divorce and Family law. There is just so much to know when you don't limit your practice of
law to a particular area, no personal injury, no bankruptcy, no real estate,
no immigration and no commercial litigation , no breach of contract law,
no workers compensation; we do none of that. However we are affiliated
with other very successful law firms that have their practice limited
to these types of cases. Always have a specialized expert on your case
is our "motto and creed'.'
Our fee structure combined with my 32 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. Should an uncontested divorce turn into a fully
contested divorce all the 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. On our uncontested
divorces the day of your appointment we get all of your information over
the phone and all-yes, all of your uncontested papers are ready when you
walk in the door before paying a penny. According to the matrimonial clerk's
office a large percentage of divorces submitted by law firms are rejected
by either the matrimonial clerk's office or by judges or special referees
for defective paperwork. Our office is committed to getting you the divorce
done, whether contested or uncontested faster than any other New York
matrimonial firm. We accomplish this by hiring a law clerk whose sole
function is to purchase index numbers every day and file divorce papers
in the appropriate county every day, not just one day a week or one day
every two weeks that other law firms do. Further, we employ an attorney
whose sole role is to check each and every divorce to make sure each and
every document is perfect before being presented to the court. For even
your simplest uncontested divorce, each step of the process is handled
by a specialist attorney in our office (not secretary or paralegal) to
make sure that your divorce gets signed as soon as possible. When you
first retain our office we select the appropriate county for your uncontested
divorce. Sometimes this means we select a different county than the one
you live in. The counties all have different rules and procedures. We
select the one most suited to your needs. Choosing the wrong county may
have a major impact on the time it takes to get your divorce or whether
you have to pay more or receive less in child support. It is unbelievable
that each county has different procedures but that is the reality and
we use our experience and expertise to select the most appropriate county
for each individual client.
Further our office subscribes to a service that provides every noteworthy
legal decision on a weekly basis in the field of Matrimonial and Family law. We actually as an office review each week all the latest decisions implementing
them into the strategy of our current cases. We do this often at 9 or
10 pm at night hours long after other law firms have gone home for the day.
Total commitment to our clients by this firm is also 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.
: The firm over the course of 32 years has a spotless record with the New
York State Bar Association. This is quite a feat since we handle over 700 cases each year.
We don't have a fancy office, nor do we seek the limelight that other
law firms seek. We believe in quality, professional, competent services to quickly bringing
your divorce to an end so you may move on to the next aspect of your life
with a good settlement for each client and a lot less spent in legal fees.
We look for the least expensive way to achieve your goals sometimes incorporating
the use of family court proceedings instead of solely relying on the divorce
court. We often work against our financial interest to insure enough money
stays in our clients pocket not in ours. 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 often times doing
80 % of the work left. This year we had one client who paid their lawyer
a $6,000 retainer and owed him $8,000 more in attorney's fees and
that lawyer had not even made a single court appearance. We charged a
$2,750 retainer and resolved all issues and got him divorced without him
paying an additional penny.
