An Unmatched Reputation In New York Family Law

I am attorney Robert G. Smith and have honed my legal skills throughout the New York City metropolitan area for the past 40 years, establishing a solid reputation that’s unmatched by many competitors. I’ve represented celebrities, prominent public figures and people from all walks of life in a wide range of divorce and family law matters – with success.

My Reputation

Top-notch negotiation techniques and litigation skills are vital to winning any case. My reputation as an expert in family law speaks for itself – and my adversaries know this when they come to the negotiation table.

My Recognition From Peers

I have achieved significant recognition and respect with judges throughout the state of New York, having served on court-approved panels.

I’ve also obtained respect from peers. I have been AV Preeminent peer-review rated,* the highest rating, through Martindale-Hubbell for more than 25 years, and I was selected for inclusion in New York Super Lawyers for over a decade.

My Media Appearances

Invitations to appear on numerous prominent TV networks over the years is testament to my trusted, well-known reputation and expertise in the field of family law.

My Philosophy – More Is Far From Better

Check

After four decades of successful settlement negotiations and contested trials, I have drawn the conclusion that the presence of large numbers of expensive lawyers in fancy suits is not the best methodology of predicting a favorable outcome. Nor is charging hundreds of thousands of dollars in a retainer fee.

My experience, skill and ability to find solutions to real, obscure issues is why clients turn to me, a solo practitioner, for representation. A bigger legal team is not stronger or smarter or more efficient.
