Our team practices in all five boroughs of New York—as well as in the surrounding counties—and we represent clients in both NY Family Court and NY Supreme Court.
Barton offers highly individualized, responsive, and cost-effective representation to achieve our clients’ goals as efficiently and favorably as possible. We counsel clients regarding their range of options and work collaboratively with them to design a strategy to resolve their disputes. Although most of our cases have resulted in advantageous settlements for our clients, we have extensive experience litigating cases when the need arises.
Because Barton includes attorneys who handle corporate transactions, commercial litigation, wills, trusts and estates, immigration, employment matters, and a variety of other client services, we offer a variety of resources unmatched by many family law firms in the New York metropolitan area. The attorneys on the Matrimonial and Family Law team consult with Barton’s other practitioners on a regular basis to draw upon their knowledge and experience to deliver the best possible results for our clients.
We serve a diverse set of clients from all walks of life and we understand that sensitivity and discretion are of utmost importance to those going through separation, divorce, and other family issues.
