Barton’s family law practice handles all aspects of divorce, including property distribution, child custody, parenting time, child support, and spousal support, as well as the modification and enforcement of those issues, and pre- and post-nuptial agreements.  We take remarkably good care of our clients, offering compassionate, responsive, and cost-effective representation to achieve our clients’ goals as efficiently and favorably as possible.


We counsel clients regarding their options, and work collaboratively with them to select and design a process and strategy to resolve their disputes.  Although most of our cases have resulted in advantageous settlements to our clients, we have extensive experience litigating cases when the need arises.


Our firm, which is comprised of lawyers practicing in the areas of corporate law, commercial litigation, wills, trusts and estates, immigration, and employment, among other fields of practice, offers a range of resources unmatched by many family law firms in New York City and neighboring counties.  Our attorneys routinely consult with one another and draw upon each other’s depth of knowledge and expertise to deliver the best possible results for our clients.


The firm’s clients have included high-profile individuals, CEOs and other business leaders, doctors, lawyers, and other professionals, and their spouses.  We understand that sensitivity and discretion are of utmost importance to clients going through separation and divorce, and we strive to protect the privacy of each client and his or her family.
