Matrimonial & Family Law
Believing that couples that marry with dignity deserve to divorce with dignity, our approach to the practice of matrimonial and family law is designed to fit the client’s individual needs and sensitivities. We focus on negotiating equitable and just settlements whenever possible, addressing the often complex issues of divorce while minimizing the counterproductive antagonism. When necessary, however, our attorneys are exceptionally qualified to aggressively litigate highly complex financial, property, custody and support-related issues.
The attorneys of Winter & Grossman have helped thousands of individuals throughout Long Island and the greater New York metropolitan area in matters of divorce, separation, annulment, property distribution, maintenance (alimony), child support, child custody and visitation, post judgment enforcement/modification proceedings, as well as with pre-nuptial, post-nuptial and cohabitation agreements. We also handle all aspects of family court proceedings, including Family Offense/Domestic Violence, Paternity, Child Abuse and Neglect proceedings.
The members of our firm have more than 65 years combined experience and lead our Matrimonial and Family Law Practice. Members Jerry Winter and Robert Grossman are both fellows of the prestigious, nationally recognized American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, of which there are only approximately 1,600 fellows nationwide. Mr. Winter is well known throughout the New York area, having successfully practiced matrimonial and family law exclusively for decades. Both Mr. Winter and Mr. Grossman hold the highest possible peer review rating (AV) from Martindale-Hubbell. Mr. Grossman came to the practice of matrimonial law many years ago, after years of successfully representing clients in commercial and real estate matters who specifically requested his representation in divorce proceedings.
