A Lawyer who will FIGHT for You and Your CHILDREN
There is nothing as emotional as a child custody case. Steven J. Mandel has been handling, and most importantly, winning, child custody cases — from the simple to the complex, from the routine to the extraordinary, since 1980. What makes Steve’s practice unique is that he is not afraid to take the difficult cases.
Because of her age and the fact that she was unmarried, a 60 year old foster mother, who dedicated her life to caring for children with AIDS, was denied the opportunity to adopt 2 children so afflicted for whom she had been caring for a number of years. In a lawsuit against the City of New York’s Child Welfare Administration, Steve succeeded in winning for this wonderful ‘mother’ the right to obtain legal custody, and ultimately adopt these children.
In an important case involving ‘parental choice’, Steve successfully represented the family of a 5 year old leukemia patient whose father, when he disagreed with the doctors, ‘kidnapped’ his son from a major New York hospital, to take him to a different hospital in Houston. A judge incarcerated the child’s mother, at Riker’s Island, until her husband and son returned to New York. The Mandel Law Firm won for the parents not only the right to have their critically ill child treated at the facility of their choice, but also the legal ability to follow the treatment option recommended by the doctor of their choice. The rights to this story were purchased by CBS for a movie-of-the-week.
Steven J. Mandel is a parent himself, who is deeply devoted to his own children. He realizes that there is no greater reward, or responsibility, than being a parent. You can be assured that Steve and his team at The Mandel Law Firm will do everything possible to make sure that both your goals and your children’s best interests are satisfied.
