Christine M. Verbitsky, Esq. – Partner

Christine M. Verbitsky, Esq.

Divorce and Family Law matters are by their nature difficult for everyone involved.

It gives me great personal and professional satisfaction to be able to remove the burden of the complex legal and financial issues my clients face so that they can concentrate on healing their emotional wounds and move on to happier, more fulfilling lives.

I believe my caring nature and ability to develop personal, one-on-one relationships with my clients has enabled me to deliver the best results for my clients.

During the course of my career, I have gained an understanding of how stressful events can cause a major impact on people’s lives. My compassion and understanding of your feelings helps me guide you through the otherwise difficult divorce process. I joyfully go “above and beyond” for every client to lead them through the process, providing clear direction and informing them of options, impacts, and likely outcomes.

My experience in and out of the courtroom provides me with a unique perspective on your point of view that enables me to resolve disputes that ensure your interests are protected now and in the future.

“Christine Verbitsky was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed near impossible. Not only was she able to defend us but her calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional relief to me and those I care about most. She is thorough in her work and always responded to me in a timely manner. She made a difficult time a little easier and less stressful. My daughter and I are eternally grateful for her service and I would recommend Christine without reservation.”

Samantha Cooper

“Christine represented me in family court. It was a very emotional roller coaster. My two children are the most important people in my life and Christine helped me through the most difficult time ever. When it comes to the well-being of your children you don’t want to waste time and money on an uneducated attorney. Christine is extremely professional and knew the law like the back of her hand. I would gladly use her again to represent me in the future. I’m so thankful for her and the entire office staff for helping this nightmare have a happy ending!”

Blair Taub

“Christine was the second lawyer to work on my divorce and child custody case and I wish we had her from the start. During my initial consultation with Christine, I knew she understood that my son’s well-being and stability was everything to me. Instantly, I felt trust with her and knew we were in good hands. Both Robert & Christine are extremely knowledgeable on the law and are very strategic when it comes to complex and unique cases such as mine (myself and son live in Florida, this entire case lasted a year and went to trial in New York). They truly care about their clients and fight for what is important to them. It was nice to have a response within an hour of my emails, my phone calls and never felt like I was left waiting for someone to reply. When you choose an attorney, sometimes you are literally putting your life in their hands. I trusted Christine then, and I would trust her again today. Rest assured that you’re in good hands once you hire this firm. When they say something is going to get done, it does. You would be very fortunate to have them represent you. This firm was a blessing from the moment I walked into the office!”

“I know what most people say about lawyers because I am one of those people lol…. But my experience with the law firm Robert E Hornberger Esq., P.C. and in particular Christine Verbitsky was nothing short of wonderful. They took care of me every step of the way and always had my best interests first. They worked diligently and professionally to get me the best possible deal and making sure I didn’t settle for anything less. If anyone is looking to have their opinion about lawyers changed or to be treated as you should when you need a lawyer, look no further then this law firm…. Thank you so MUCH Christine and Rob.”

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. It was a long few years and I am grateful to all of you. Thank you so much Rob, AnneMarie, Christine, Patty, Joan and Lawrence. Your guidance, professionalism and expertise is appreciated beyond measure.

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.
