MANDEL’S LAWS

Thoughts About Life and Legal Issues From Family Law Attorney Steve Mandel
Mandel's Laws

Our founder, Steven J. Mandel, is an experienced trial attorney who has seen a lot in practicing law in the tough New York legal scene since 1980. Over the course of his career as a litigator and family law attorney, he has developed a number of maxims that define, sometimes in a humorous way, his view of the legal scene. Some are more original than others, but all will make you think.

$
The practice of law is an art, not a science.
$
I help clients keep their lives together when their marriages are falling apart.
$
Most lawyers plan to win, but we know how to effectuate the plan.
$
If you focus on the solutions, the problems take care of themselves.
$
This may be your first divorce, but it’s not ours.
$
Your problems are now my problems.
$
Litigation is not a spectator sport. It’s very Darwinian in that only the strongest survive.
$
In preparing for trial, I prepare for war, but always hope for peace.
$
It’s easier for me to keep you out of trouble than get you out of trouble. So when in doubt, talk to me.
$
Peace has its price; but it’s important to know what the price is.
$
When you’re swimming in the ocean and you hear music playing, get out!
$
Integrity and credibility go hand in hand, as does hard work and results.
$
If a lawyer only knows the law, the legislature can repeal everything he knows.
$
The good lawyers know the law; the great lawyers know how to make the law work for you.
$
The only thing “luck” gets you is a parking spot. Everything else comes from hard work and design.
$
At The Mandel Law Firm, we’ve earned our reputation for excellence one client at a time.
$
To be a success, you only have to work half a day. It doesn’t matter if it’s the first 12 hours or the last 12 hours.
$
Don’t worry ’till I tell you to worry. Let me worry for you.
$
We’ll win as a team.
$
I’m not here to get a birthday card from the other side. All I care about is you.
$
Life is a series of bridges. You have to decide which ones to build and which ones to blow up.
$
Don’t sweat the small stuff, but don’t take any grief from anyone.
$
Don’t let their problems become your problems.
$
If you want things to happen, you have to make them happen.
$
Litigation is a marathon, not a sprint.
