New York Family Law Attorneys

Serving NYC and Surrounding Areas: Child Custody Lawyers

A Wide Range of Family Law Solutions

If you're facing divorce, are embroiled in a child custody dispute, need help to bring a loved one into the country or must defend your immigration status in a divorce, understanding how to protect your rights and interests begins with understanding how to assert them.

As a lawyer with more than 30 years of experience, Steven J. Mandel has established a reputation for highly effective and responsive legal representation by thinking in terms of what is necessary to get the desire results — in negotiations or in court — instead of what simply makes sense on paper.

"Our legal system works. The trick is to find an attorney who makes it work for you rather than against you." — Attorney Steven J. Mandel

At The Mandel Law Firm, we develop legal strategies rooted in case precedent, an understanding of what the law allows, and a knowledge of how the courts and sitting judges view different kinds of cases. Our family law attorneys understand that winning a case is a result of thoughtful, targeted strategy, and positioning it properly for the court by underscoring and highlighting the right kinds of issues. Contact us today for a consultation regarding any family law matter.
