Steven J. Mandel
Family Law Attorney / Founder
Steven J. Mandel went to Adelphi University on a baseball scholarship. Although he received an invitation to try out for the Toronto Blue Jays, he decided his competitive spirit would best be served by becoming a lawyer and thus he followed a dream and obtained a Doctor of Law (J.D.) degree, as a member of the prestigious “First Class”, from Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law in 1979.
In recognition of his knowledge, experience and integrity, upon the recommendation of a sitting Judge of the New York State Supreme Court, Steven J. Mandel was trained, certified and now volunteers as an Early Neutral Evaluator to assist litigants in resolving complex legal matters prior to going to trial.
Steven J. Mandel serves as a faculty member of the New York College of Matrimonial Trial Attorneys and, as such, presents continuing legal education programs on trial practice and family law for other lawyers at Bar Associations and law schools throughout New York State.
Because of his wealth of knowledge and experience representing people in high net-worth and complex financial matters, Steven J. Mandel was asked to join the Advisory Board of the American Academy For Certified Financial Litigators.
Steven J. Mandel has been described as “the Picasso of the legal profession” because of his proven ability to keenly assess each client’s situation and tailor an approach best suited to a successful outcome. For these reasons, he has succeeded with what other lawyers might describe as the “un-winnable case”.
With all of these accomplishments, it is no wonder why Steven J. Mandel was been selected by his peers to be a co-chair of the prestigious New York County Lawyers Association’s Matrimonial Section and chosen as a “Titan — One of New York’s Bad-Ass Divorce Lawyers You Wouldn’t Want To See Representing Your Spouse.”
