Lower Fee Structures Combined with Over 38 Years in Matrimonial Law
In uncontested divorce cases, our flat fees are low. Should your spouse be unwilling to sign any consent forms, we can still make sure you get divorced. In the event that your spouse hires an attorney, which only happens around 3% of the time, we only charge a flat fee of $500 for negotiating a simple divorce settlement. This minimal fee is compared to many other family law firms who charge upwards of $3,500 to $7,500. Worried that your uncontested divorce may turn into a more complicated contested divorce situation? Do not worry. Any and all fees you paid during uncontested divorce proceedings are put towards he contested retainer. Contested divorces have varying schedules of flat fees. Unlike many other firms, we do not bill each phone call or charge hourly rates.
Unmatched Time Elapsed from Start to Finish on Your Divorce
No other law firm or attorney can complete your divorce proceeding faster than we can. For those seeking an uncontested divorce, we will gather all of the necessary information we need from you over the phone before you even come in. By the time you arrive at our office, we will have prepared all of your paperwork before you have even paid us a dime. Many divorce papers can be rejected by the matrimonial clerk's office for having defective paperwork. We do not make these kinds of careless mistakes. Our firm is solely committed to obtaining your divorce faster for you than any other matrimonial law firm in New York.
How do we keep that promise? We have hired a law clerk who exclusively works on purchasing index numbers, as well as filing all divorce paperwork with the proper county each and every day, not every other week like many other firms. Additionally, we also have an attorney whose job it is to double and triple check all divorce documentation before it is sent to the court to be processed. No matter how simple your divorce, it will be handled by a qualified attorney, not a paralegal or office assistant. When you first begin the divorce process, we will help you select which county to file with, whether or not you live there is not the priority.
There are certain procedures and rules for each county and you will want to choose the one best suited for your family law needs. If you pick the wrong one, this can significantly delay the divorce process and end up costing you more money in the long-run. By using our extensive knowledge on the matter and looking to fully understand your unique situation, we can help you select the right county.
We receive notice of any and all noteworthy legal decisions in matrimonial and family law.
Every week we get together at around 9 or 10 pm, when other offices may have gone home for the evening, and we pour over these legal decisions, making sure to implement any important legal changes into the strategies of our current cases.
We are always attending legal education programs and continuing our knowledge of the law.
In our commitment to our clients, we are always seeking to further our education on all matters of family law and then implementing what we learn with our clients' cases.
We have over over 100 years of combined experience maintaining a spotless record in accordance with the New York State Bar Association.
This accomplishment is noteworthy especially since we deal with over 700 cases annually.
We put you as our top priority – not money or fame.
Our goal is to provide you with a positive outcome for you and your family, at costs that are much lower than other firms. If there is a way to avoid expensive legal procedures in divorce court by going to family court instead, we will often go that route. Oftentimes, we will work to keep money in your pockets, rather than attempt to add it to our own financial gain.
This is one of the reasons why over ¾ of our new clients come from past client referrals and why we complete over 400 annulments and divorces each year. There have been times when clients come to us after starting their divorce with another firm. In some cases, they will owe their other firm $8,000-$25,000 in fees, yet we are able to finish their divorce for a fraction of that cost while doing over 75% of the work still leftover by the other firm.
For example, we had one client who had already paid their attorney a $6,000 retainer and still owed another $8,000 in fees. Their lawyer had not even made one single court appearance either. We took on the case and charged only a $2,750 retainer and completed the divorce, resolved all other pending issues and it did not cost him another dime.
