"We are not just attorneys; we are counselors at law." — Steven J. Mandel

We will counsel you through what will likely be one of the most difficult times of your life. Our goal is always to prepare you fully for life after divorce and be the best divorce lawyer we can for your situation.

For instance, when you're facing a child support or child custody battle, paternity dispute, domestic violence situation or allegations of child abuse or neglect, you have more than just legal needs. We take the time to understand all of your needs — the emotional and financial, as well as legal ones. As parents ourselves, we are particularly sensitive to cases involving children.

Steve Mandel serves as a faculty member of the New York College of Matrimonial Trial Attorneys and, as such, prepares continuing legal education programs on trial practice and family law for other lawyers throughout New York state.

  • High net worth divorce
  • Spousal support or alimony
  • Visitation, parent relocation and parental abduction
