Lawyers

What follows is a vetted list of family attorneys who have been recommended to us by two or more clients, who we know well or have worked with ourselves. They include traditional litigating attorneys, as well as attorneys who practice mediation and collaborative law (for the difference between mediation, litigation and collaborative law, click here).

“Ani Mason is trained as a mediator and can help you see all sides to help you move quickly to a resolution that won’t leave you thinking ‘I wish I had done it another way’. And on top of that, she is a whiz with numbers. Faster than a calculator. She is quite definitely the best of the best.”

Alyssa prides herself on reaching creative out-of-court settlements whenever possible, and excels in handling complex divorces involving business evaluations and tax issues.

“Tenacity, brilliance and a heart of gold! Alyssa is my secret weapon who was relentless in trying to make a deal with my husband. She has the patience of a saint and had to deal with [my husband’s] unethical ways on a day-to-day basis. Early in the morning, late at night and on the weekends, Alyssa was always there to answer my e-mails and calls.”
Casey Shevin

Mediation, Collaborative
Family Centered Law & Mediation
60 East 42nd Street, 46th Floor

New York, NY 10165

“From our first consulatation it was clear that Casey treated me and my divorce with compassion, serious legal expertise, and, given the circumstances, a most welcome warm-hearted sense of humor. She put me at ease and dispelled my many fears by framing my situation with no-nonsense clarity addressing both very real aspects of divorce: the legal and the human.”

Fresh Meadow (Queens), NY 11365

“Ann Marie listened and was attentive to my needs.

“She is really clearly getting the dynamics that are specific to our case, and mindful of them.
