Of course, these are Natural Questions.

We’ve all heard the horror stories of divorce lawyers draining the bank accounts of their clients by unnecessarily dragging out their cases. We’re not one of them. Unfortunately, a few bad apples can ruin the reputation of the majority of professionals with their client’s best interests at heart.

We are committed to keeping our fees as low as possible for our clients.

The Faster We Can Resolve Your Case, the Less It Will Cost

The cost of your divorce depends entirely upon its complexity and the willingness of all participants to communicate and compromise. Simply put, the faster we can resolve your case, the less it will cost.

What Kind of Divorce Will Yours Be?

Types of Divorce on Long IslandSome clients enter my door with the outline of an agreement with their spouse in their hand, and others enter my door looking for a resolution that is polar opposite from that which their spouse desires.

Uncontested divorces where the parties are in complete agreement on the terms of their divorce, who gets what, etc. require less time and can be resolved more quickly and for less cost. On the opposite extreme, couples with complex financial holdings and children and who are unwilling to communicate and compromise, wind up in court. In these cases, we spend a great deal of time completing discovery, gathering documents, writing briefs, filing motions, appearing in court, etc.

The Time & Cost Is Determined By You & Your Spouse

Our role is to gather information to help you make the best decisions for you and your future and to protect your interests. Ultimately, the decision of how long it takes to settle your case, and therefor how much it will cost, falls on you and your spouse.

Time Is Money

time is money long island divorceWhat it comes down to is how long is it going to take to resolve your case? The more you and your spouse can agree upon, the shorter the duration of your case and the less your divorce will cost. The more issues you and your spouse cannot agree upon and “fight” over, the more time your attorney will be required to spend on you case, the longer it will take to resolve and thereby, the more it will cost.

We are committed to keeping our fees affordable for Long Islanders like you and to ensuring that you receive the representation that you expect and deserve.

Affordable Divorce Resolution Strategies

To be sure, certain strategies are generally more affordable than others. For example, Divorce Mediation is generally a fraction of the cost of Divorce Litigation, but even then it depends upon you and your spouse’s ability to work out your differences and issues outside of a courtroom in our offices.

Christine Verbitsky was an absolute godsend. At arguably the most difficult time in my life, Christine helped me cope with my situation and gave me a solid basis for hope going forward. She got to know me. She understood what I wanted and helped me understand my legal options. Christine is intelligent, incredibly well-versed in the law and was able to pro-actively take the bull by the horns in caring for both my legal and emotional needs. Instead of letting things drag on, Christine stayed on top of my case and kept costs at a minimum. She was always available to me, fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and caring. I highly recommend her professional services.

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.
