How our ability to litigate influences client goals and settlement

We believe that the most effective way to achieve a client's goals is to have a litigation strategy from the outset. A case that is prepared to go to trial provides the client with the greatest leverage to achieve his or her goals during divorce settlement negotiations. The process should be methodical, well-thought out and give the client a sense that his/her case has a game plan and an end goal. In addition, all settlement negotiations should be undertaken with a clear understanding of the likely outcome were the matter to be litigated. Because of our litigation experience, we are often substituted into a case on the eve of trial when settlement negotiations have either proven fruitless or broken down and current counsel is unable to take the case to trial.

Technology helps to insure quality legal services

To improve the management of your case, our firm uses technology to insure that the highest quality legal services are provided. Some of our clients' marital estates are substantial, and can involve multiple residences (foreign and domestic), closely held businesses, investments, retirement accounts, and bank and brokerage accounts. The use of advanced technology allows us to store your files electronically with precise organization. As a result, we are able to swiftly retrieve your documents and data when necessary and provide them to you quickly through the use of electronic mail.

Our practice focuses on the following areas:

  • Litigating matrimonial actions involving spousal maintenance, equitable distribution, and child support
  • Litigating custody disputes
  • Litigating Family Court actions involving paternity, child custody and child support
  • Litigating post-judgment actions involving modifications to support obligations, child custody and parental access, and relocation
  • Negotiating and drafting settlement agreements
  • Pre-nuptial agreements.
