During your Long Island Divorce, it is likely that your spouse and his or her attorney will attempt to intimidate you and make you believe you are not entitled to what is rightfully yours. Do not let this happen to you.

Your spouse may also be asking you for assets that you have earned during the course of the marriage. While he or she may be entitled to a certain share or portion, it is important not to let your spouse get carried away. In many cases, he or she may attempt to squeeze harder than necessary and receive additional sums that they are not entitled to.

At one of the hardest and most stressful times of my life, it was so comforting to have a team at Hornberger and Verbitsky who ALWAYS responded in record speed to my questions, phone calls, emails or texts and who I felt really cared about helping me through this difficult time.

I would give 6 stars if I could. I can't say enough good things about Robert and his firm. We were in a situation for over 2 years and I could have never made it through without Robert's experience and knowledge. He guided me through tough times when needed and his expertise could "read" the situation and make the next best move for me. He was tough when he needed to be tough (thankfully) and at the same time guided me through the process to make me feel comfortable in an uncomfortable situation. I would not want to go through this process without Robert and his team having my back. he helped move the case along and not waste any time or money. One last time, I 100% endorse Robert and his expertise.
