Beware Attorneys Who Make Promises Before They Understand Your Case

As experienced Long Island Divorce Attorneys, we unfortunately meet with many people who say that, after a brief conversation, an attorney promised them that he or she could get them A, B and C. In reality, however, no attorney can “promise” you anything after a brief conversation. Attorneys, like most professionals, have to do their due diligence to learn the true nature of your case.

There are any number of obstacles to getting A, B and C. Some of those obstacles may be statutory law or may be your spouse or his or her attorney refusing to budge and give you one of those things. Each and every divorce is different, just as each and every marriage is different, and, if you are in the middle of a Contested Divorce, you and your spouse are struggling to reach an agreement.

If you meet with an attorney who, after a few minutes, tells you he or she can fully complete your divorce and you’ll get everything you want for a nominal sum, without knowing any details about your marriage, your current financial situation and what assets you have (at the bare minimum), there is simply no possible way he or she can effectively deliver on that promise. If he or she can barely take the time to get to know you and understand your situation a little better, it’s unlikely he or she will take the time to effectively advocate for you during your divorce.

Without fully understanding the intricacies of your case, and the position and attitude of your spouse, there is simply no way an attorney can make any promises that can be meaningfully fulfilled. This is one of the reasons your consultation is so important. As experienced Long Island divorce attorneys, we need to know certain details before any promises are made and before any action is taken in a Long Island courtroom. If we are not armed with the proper information, we cannot effectively do our job and ensure you receive everything you deserve.

Your Spouse Can Try to Drag Your Divorce On

There have been countless people who have been the victim of their spouse attempting to drag out their divorce proceedings. While there are certainly safeguards built into the Long Island court system and contained in New York State Law, there are ways your spouse, or his or her attorney can effectively elongate your timeline. Of course, for almost every offensive action there is a defense tactic that can be used to ensure your divorce stays on track.

As experienced Long Island Divorce Attorneys, we have learned the most effective ways to keep your divorce moving, ensuring that this complex and emotional process does not last longer than is necessary. Almost all hurdles and obstacles that your spouse can throw at your case can effectively be maneuvered around, all while ensuring that you are receiving what you are entitled to.

It is important to keep in mind, however, that a Long Island divorce is something that takes time, and is rarely completed as quickly as you originally wanted. Many clients hope that their Contested Divorce will be wrapped up in a few months, but, unfortunately, this is a rare occurrence, particularly when parties are unwilling to negotiate. While we certainly do everything we can to keep your case moving forward, there are certain time restrictions and constraints that cannot be overlooked. It is also important to remember the potential long-lasting implications your divorce settlement is likely to have. Your Divorce Agreement, sometimes called a Stipulation of Settlement or Separation Agreement, will impact your life for many years to come. These issues affect not just you and your spouse, but your children, and their well-being as also. It is thus very important that your matter receives the time and attention that it deserves now to protect you from winding up back in court in a few months.

Going through a divorce was very challenging and emotional. Searching for an attorney can be challenging as well when you consider everything that is at stake. The choice I made to work with Rob Hornberger was surely the best choice available. His professionalism, expertise, and understanding made him and the entire team perfectly suited to achieve the outcomes I desired. Rob was always available to answer my questions and give me advice and legal considerations that affected my situation. The support I received from his staff was exemplary as well. The staff was courteous, kind, and also very professional. Thank you so much Rob and team for a worry free experience.

Being in family court especially when your children are on the line is extremely emotional and stressful but working with Robert and Christine put me at ease and made the process as pleasant as a situation like that can be. I have a now 3 year old daughter (who is the most important person in my life) and I've been working with them for over two years since my daughter was 7 months old, the case has been up and down and through it all Rob and Christine have never given up. My original case was due to a neglect charge. Cps is not easy to work with, but Rob and Christine were vigilant and I ended up getting my daughter back within 8 months and did not have to plead guilty to the neglect. Currently I am in family court to figure out a custody agreement. They are professional, empathetic, and patient. They have always explained everything thoroughly, informed me of all my options and advised me of what my best option would be. They always respond quickly when I contact them with questions or concerns and most importantly they fight for me in court and don't give up even when things get rough. Before hiring Rob and Christine I met with other attorneys who did not make me feel confident or comfortable at all about my case, so I am very grateful to have found Rob and Christine and to be represented by such great attorneys. I highly recommend them for any family court matters and will definitely continue to use them in the future if needed.

Hornberger Verbitsky, P.C. - Mr. Robert Hornberger and his staff are beyond professional, they quickly gave me my consultation appointment, and helped me with an after-Divorce issue. Mr. Hornberger was empathetic and explained to me what I should expect. Mr. Hornberger was extremely professional and advised me of my options, he helped me proceed with accurate and smart decisions. I wish I had Mr. Hornberger and his highly recommended staff when I was getting divorced. I would highly recommend Robert and his staff to anyone who is getting a divorce or in need of help with situations after the divorce!

Reviews

  • 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!!
