PRACTICE AREAS

 

MATRIMONIAL & FAMILY LAW

We provide compassionate, results-oriented, practical and affordable legal services to families experiencing divorce. We help you find answers to a full range of family law issues, including child custody, child support and maintenance, division of retirement assets and property, domestic violence concerns, pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, enforcement actions and step-parent and second-parent adoptions.

IMMIGRATION LAW

Our firm specializes in family-based petitions, marriage-based adjustment of status, petitions to remove conditional residency and naturalization. We also have considerable experience in nonimmigrant and employment based visas (employer sponsorship) including E-1 and E-2 visas for treaty traders and investors.

 

REAL ESTATE & BUSINESS LAW

We guide clients throughout the process of buying and selling residential and commercial real estate in the State of New York, from initial negotiations to closing the sale. If you are starting or purchasing a small business we are here to help you from incorporation to contract to licensing and shareholders’ agreements. 

WILLS, TRUSTS & ESTATES

A well-crafted will is the foundation for most estate plans but there are many other estate planning documents, like trusts, powers of attorney, and health care proxies to consider when making your plan. Whether you need a simple will or more advanced solutions to protect your assets and provide for loved ones, we are here to help you accomplish your goals and provide peace of mind. We also have wide experience handling in probate and administration proceedings and have long dealt with ancillary probate issues involving property outside the U.S. and non-resident estate beneficiaries.
