A NEW YORK MATRIMONIAL AND DIVORCE LAW FIRM THAT UNDERSTANDS YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS
All families and marriages are unique, so there is no such thing as a “typical” divorce. The New York attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein LLP understand this. We take the time to listen to each of our clients and to understand fully the circumstances of their case. From the very first consultation with our attorneys, we work to carefully understand a client’s goals. We then work with the client to design a strategy and a gameplan to carry out those goals. We often consult with an outside team of professionals such as financial advisors, accounts, trust and estate attorneys, forensic accountants, and many others to allow our clients to move through the divorce process efficiently and effectively.
Based in midtown Manhattan, our firm serves clients across the greater New York area, including Westchester, Nassau, Suffolk, Queens, and Rockland Counties.
When a marriage ends and divorce proceedings begin, the goal is to reach a settlement without a trial. In many cases, having to go to court can be avoided. In other cases, court is necessary when parties cannot agree on how to resolve their divorce.
At Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein, our litigation team is second to none. We have the size, depth and wealth of knowledge to handle the most complex litigated divorce cases. The litigation attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein have extensive courtroom and trial experience. Our litigation team has been involved in precedent setting and groundbreaking matrimonial matters.
Once the litigation begins, the attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein create a litigation roadmap for our clients and craft carefully designed litigation strategies to fit each client’s case and goals. We walk a client through each step of the litigation process from start to finish. We pride ourselves on our extensive and unmatched preparation throughout the litigation process and at trial. We understand that the litigation process can be overwhelming and stressful. We strive to educate and support our clients throughout the entire litigation and divorce process from start to settlement.
If mediation or a collaborative approach is best, our attorneys can help
Divorce may end a marriage, but family relationships continue even after a divorce is finalized. Not every divorce calls for a lengthy, difficult, and expensive trial. Having litigated thousands of cases in court, we know how draining court can be, and we frequently help our clients avoid the time, expense, and stress of a trial. We are proud of our reputation as one of the most reliable and compassionate mediation and collaborative law firms in New York.
It may sound counterintuitive, but preparing a case as if it were going to trial is often the best way to avoid one. Sometimes, only by telling your adversary you are prepared to let the judge decide – confident that your case is strong enough to win – can a settlement happen.
