A Premier New York Divorce And Family Law Firm

Significant financial and legal interests are at stake in a divorce, child custody dispute or support matters. Advocate, LLP, is a boutique law firm comprised of skilled, experienced and committed attorneys familiar with all aspects of family law and the dissolution of marriage.

We protect our clients’ interests immediately and in the long term. For decades, our legal team has helped clients through complex and high-asset divorces. While our end goal is always to get our clients a fair distribution of their assets and the best custody arrangements for them and their children, how we reach that goal is equally important to us. Whenever possible, we seek effective resolutions that minimize conflict and preserve our clients’ rights. We recognize that all families have different dynamics and that it is important often to think outside of the box and come up with creative solutions to vexing conflicts.

  • Child Custody And Support
