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.
