BERKMAN BOTTGER NEWMAN & SCHEIN, LLP

A NEW YORK MATRIMONIAL AND DIVORCE LAW FIRM THAT UNDERSTANDS YOUR PERSONAL NEEDS

All families and marriages are unique, so there is no such thing as a “typical” divorce. The New York attorneys at Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein LLP understand this. We take the time to listen to each of our clients and to understand fully the circumstances of their case.

From the very first consultation with our attorneys, we work to carefully understand a client’s goals. We then work with the client to design a strategy and a game plan to carry out those goals. We often consult with an outside team of professionals such as financial advisors, accounts, trust, and estate attorneys, forensic accountants, and many others to allow our clients to move through the divorce process efficiently and effectively.

THE LAW OFFICE OF RYAN BESINQUE, PC

Ryan Besinque, Esq. is a dedicated and experienced divorce lawyer and family law attorney in New York City. Although he prefers to take a more collaborative and communicative approach to provide the least animosity possible, when the occasion calls for it, he has no problem using more aggressive strategies to ensure the best results for his clients. Over his time in practice, he has seen, firsthand, the devastating emotional and financial toll that divorce can have on a family. Consequently, he finely tailors his approach so each client can be thoroughly represented and feel optimistic about the future.

Ryan is licensed to practice in both the state of New York and California. Throughout his career, he has represented hundreds of clients in all facets of divorce, custody, support, and family offense cases throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Queens, and neighboring Westchester county and Nassau county. He prides himself on his detailed communication with his clients, his consistent availability, and his meticulous efficiency. In addition to his private practice, provides quality legal services to indigent individuals through the Manhattan Assigned Counsel Panel.

Ryan is committed to guiding his clients through the often difficult divorce process while maintaining their respect and integrity. He provides a comprehensive set of services, often connecting clients with other experts such as child specialists, mental health professionals, and financial advisors to ensure each client’s complete representation. While he likes to strive for a non-adversarial resolution, he realizes there are times when an aggressive approach is warranted and necessary.

CHAIM STEINBERGER, P.C.

Chaim Steinberger, by nature a perfectionist, did rather well in law school, then clerked for a United States District Court judge, and was recruited by some of the largest, most prestigious law firms in the country. During this time he went through his own nasty divorce and said to himself, “There’s got to be a better way.” He now dedicates his life to practicing that better way, bringing large-firm professionalism, practice, and polish to the area of matrimonial and family law.

Mr. Steinberger continues to study litigation, negotiation, and mediation so as to employ the latest and best techniques in each of these and other areas for the benefit of his clients. He serves as an arbitrator, judging disputes in Small Claims Court and other venues. There, and through his service as a law clerk and mediator, he sits in the “middle” of others’ disputes and gets to “feel” what arguments are persuasive and compelling and which fall flat, making him a better advocate, litigator, and negotiator.

As detailed in his article, Mediation Techniques Every Litigator Can Use, Mr. Steinberger also uses his mediator’s techniques when he’s advocating for his clients, sensing where an opening for resolution might lie, and then finding ways to achieve consensus to his client’s advantage.

Game Theory teaches that when two adversaries work together, they often both come out ahead of where they could each be if they remain at odds with one another. Thus, Mr. Steinberger knows, if he is able to begin to reestablish a relationship and, perhaps, some budding trust, between the parties they can reach resolutions of mutual benefit rather than pursue “scorched earth,” “zero-sum” strategies where the only question is “who loses more?”

BIKEL ROSENTHAL & SCHANFIELD LLP

New York’s Bikel Rosenthal and Schanfield matrimonial lawyers focus exclusively on divorces, child custody, spousal and child support, and all related matters from prenuptial agreements to custody modifications. Matrimonial law is all we do and managing partner Dror Bikel has been practicing in this arena for three decades.

Our Different Approach – Our Custody and Divorce Lawyers are Trial-Focused Do you anticipate a dispute over finances or child custody in your New York divorce?

Your most advantageous approach is having an experienced New York trial lawyer (little-known fact: most lawyers rarely, if ever, go to court – legitimately experienced trial attorneys are rare) at your side. Bikel Rosenthal & Schanfield attorneys are recognized as among New York’s and the country’s best matrimonial trial attorneys.

With decades of actual courtroom experience helping clients protect their children, their assets, and their rights in divorce and custody cases we know the factors New York courts consider when issuing rulings and rendering decisions, as well as the variances by the court and by the judge.

This hard-earned knowledge is priceless when advising clients on their rights and responsibilities so they can make strategic and tactical decisions based on facts and our experience.
