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.

I am a paralegal in an unrelated field of law. I phoned Hornberger Verbitsky, P.C. today intending to refer a client to their office. Instead (and despite that we are the midst of the present crisis), Mr. Hornberger himself graciously accommodated my questions over the telephone, and was generous with his time and adroit in his response, saving our client a small fortune in unnecessary legal fees. I have not had any similar experience, in which counsel was so generous with his expertise, in 22+ years of interacting with prominent, local attorneys, and the client is overjoyed. Based on this experience, I would now whole -heartedly recommend this firm as trusted professionals to any client requiring a firm expert in family law and related legal issues.

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!!
