What we can do

Divorce | Pre/Postnuptial | Custody/Support

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.

Pre/Postnuptial — Marriage is not only an spiritual and emotional bond, but it is also an economic one. Limit your risks and protect your assets or be sure to get what you are due.  Almost 50% of marriages end in divorce: marriage is more complicated that people realize; so is protecting yourself and loved ones.

Custody/Support —”The best interest and welfare of the child” is the court’s first concern. Whether your concern is physical or legal custody, you need professional support to ensure that you secure what you consider to be the best for your children.  We want to be sure you don’t lose your children.

Property Transfer | Foreclosure | Eviction

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 | Partner Disputes | Real Estate

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.

A client of ours was able to keep their house because they came to us early in their financial difficulties. Most clients wait until it is too late and there run into problems that then become much more difficult and costly. Our client, a public service worker and union member, was referred to us by a friend, when they confided that their spouse had lost his job and that they would have to start seriously cutting back on their expenses, including possibly not being able to pay the mortgage. When this person came to us and explained the situation, we explained how difficult it actually can be for a bank to foreclose, and how they really do not want to foreclose, and as the process is complex and if they do it wrong it works for our clients. By hiring us, we would tell them what to do and how to do it, so that they could be more informed and in a better position than the bank employees who are the “professionals.” Due to our process and advice, the client was able to stay in their home and renegotiate a better rate over a longer term, with no additional fees, which allowed them to stay in their home with no additional headache. This they did because they were proactive and did not hide their heads in the sand.
