Divorce — NYS splits property based upon “most fair. Don’t settle for a 50/50 split if you don’t have to.  Equitable Distribution of Assets is how NYS determines who gets what.  

When couples have built up assets together, legal expertise is required to find the fairest way of dividing them. Real estate, possessions, and pension funds built up during the marriage must be declared by both parties so they can be distributed fairly. 

Pre/Postnuptial — We specialize in drafting iron-clad, enforceable post and pre-nups to protect your pre-marital assets.

Custody/Support —”The best interest and welfare of the child” is the court’s first concern. Whether your concern is physical or legal custody, we specialize in professional support to ensure that you do not lose your children.  

Property Transfer — Buying and selling property is a complex and confusing process. There are many factors that need to be considered and things to go wrong.  Having the best advocate for your interests is the best way to protect yourself.

Foreclosure — The banks have the money and the power, but we have the skill and aggressive determination to protect you in your fight to keep your home. If you have received a Lis Pendens or are concerned about it, we can help you protect yourself like we have helped others

Eviction — Don’t let your landlord through you out of your home without a fight.  Many tenants and landlords don’t know the law and often tenant pay a price as a result.  Let us ensure that a landlord never takes advantage of you again.

Breach of Contract — Is someone not living up to their part of a contract? Do you need to break a contract?  How you address it can dictate the outcome.  You want an experienced litigator on your side, so that even if you don’t avoid litigation, your strategy is consistent and winning.

Partner Disputes — Partnerships are like marriages, and difficulty in a partnership can be just as difficult as a divorce. Whether it is forming a partnership, breaking one up, or understanding the leg ramifications of the the agreement.

Real Estate — Real Estate carries many obligations and potential risk.  Understanding what can, or cannot, be done and dealing with the government, tenants, or even family can lead to litigation, and you want someone who knows the law and can advocate for you.
