It is true that there is no shortage of divorce lawyers in Long Island.

Fine, Esq., Attorney and Mediator. In that situation, the attorney can stay on as a consulting attorney for their client, so that the client is free to speak with their attorney in follow up to what occurs in the Mediation process.

We are so confident that our agreements are well constructed to meet the requirements of the laws of this State, that an independent attorney review is not just accepted, but it is actually encouraged, to ensure the agreement is upheld down the line.
