How Am I Different?

I am an experienced Long Island and New York City divorce lawyer. As a family lawyer and as a child and family therapist with clinical and practical professional experience and training. I am able to build a rapport with people going through family conflicts and empathize with their circumstances.

I have a sensitive ability to foster a trusting relationship with the client and create an environment in which you can feel safe and secure to communicate during this time of conflict, stress, anxiety and fear of the future.

I understand that divorce is one of the most difficult experiences a person can endure, and how difficult divorce can be for the children. I appreciate the emotional and financial costs a divorce presents to the family unit.

I also appreciate and understand the emotional toll a divorce will take on the parties and on their children. I work toward solutions that best suit their interests and their family unit.

Divorce mediators are often lawyers, psychologists, or therapists. However, divorce and family law mediatos­seldom have the legal expertise and the therapeutic training that I have to connect the two disciplines and to create a deeper appreciation for the process.

I understand how to help you frame the context to reach an amicable agreement.

There are frameworks other than the traditional adversarial attorney and Court driven litigation model, in which the legal process dictates the categories of issues to be resolved with Court imposed schedules and rules in which to fight to a resolution.

Many traditional divorce lawyers see the parties' "issues" through their own lenses often clouded with preconceived notions and past cases. I look for solutions rather than issues and think "out of the box" in a creative and insightful manner to help the spouses collaborate and reach resolution.

My diverse professional experiences and training as a divorce lawyer, therapist and social worker enable me to counsel and represent clients through the most adversarial legal proceedings and the most amicable and conciliatory resolutions, including mediation. If you are searching for an experienced lawyer and advocate in Nassau County or Manhattan, please do not hesitate to call Peretz Family Law & Mediation.

I litigated a custody matter in which I represented the husband and father of two school age sons. The father and the mother are both accomplished professionals and involved parents. One could argue that both parents are very capable and would provide a loving and healthy home for their children. But both my client and his wife want the boys to live with them.

During the trial, I presented a thorough and strategic case to the judge. The father - my client - was involved and engaged in the legal process, and together we were successful in winning him custody of his sons. The common perception is that the courts favor the mother as the better custodial parent. And while sometimes this is certainly true, this case illustrates that when you have a strong, experienced and capable advocate, the gender of the parent does not matter.

If you live on Long Island or in New York City and you are looking for a seasoned divorce mediator with a unique skill set, please call Adam Peretz, Esq. at Peretz Family Law & Mediation.
