“Two for the Price of ONE!!! 

“A year ago, due to the hard work of BOTH  my lawyers, I received an ACOD in Family Court. When my case first started Robert came with me to Family Court.  After meeting with them both it was determined that Christine was going to move forward and represent me each time we needed to go before the Judge. They assured me that every aspect about my case had both of their attention and both of their input. The shame and humiliation I felt when they took on my case overwhelmed me and I never expected to be treated with kindness and respect. However, each time a phone call was made or each time I went to the office I spoke with BOTH of them and we were all on the same page.  Yesterday I received a CONGRATULATIONS note from Christine and Robert that MADE MY DAY! Today I am ACOD Free – CPS Free – I am divorced and have Full Custody of my children.  I highly recommend Christine and Robert and their wonderful staff — my life is forever changed and I am happier then I ever imagined!”

Divorce Lawyer Long Island New York




  • I have known Robert for more than 8 eight years. Robert has represented many of my family and friends. Each and every one has raved about Robert’s professionalism and expertise. He is knowledgable, friendly and truly cares about his clients. I would not hesitate to continue to refer Robert and his firm in the future!
  • I’ve known Robert for most of my life, and feel very fortunate that I have been able to turn to a good friend for various kinds of legal advice. He is very intelligent, straight forward, and professional. Most importantly though, Robert always finds the fastest resolution, and will not waste your time or money. He is NOT in the habit of dragging things through litigation if there is no need for the added expense. I have referred a few of my friends to Robert, and they have all been more than satisfied in their experience with him. Highly recommend!!
