Providing Family Law Services In NYC

The divorce process and criminal charges alike can render it profoundly difficult for you to make rational decisions about your future. This is why experience and good counsel are essential.

I have been a New York family law attorney and criminal defense lawyer for more than 35 years. I know how the legal system works, and I give my clients valued counsel for their cases. When you work with the Robert G. Smith, PLLC law firm, I will not overstate my ability to achieve your objectives, or play on your emotions and give you false hopes. I will give you intelligent counsel. With 35 years of experience, I have a good idea about the possible outcomes of a case, and I will use that knowledge to help you.

I Know The Rules

You do not require a license or permission from the state of New York to fall in love or to have children. But when you or your spouse files for divorce or child custody, you are playing by New York's rules. I know these rules, and I can help you achieve your objectives and protect yourself, your children and your property.

Help With General Divorce-Related Matters

I can represent you in a wide variety of general divorce and marital matters, such as:

Blended families

Changed circumstances, modifying the judgment

Child custody and relocation

Paternity proceedings

Opting out, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

Non-traditional marriages and domestic partnerships

The Financial Reality Of Divorce

The financial reality of divorce is that only the wealthiest can maintain two separate households with the same standard of living that they had as one household; and only the wealthiest can maintain drawn out, contested divorce litigation. Since I have handled many high-asset and high-profile divorces, I have a deep commitment to maintaining my clients' confidentiality and providing sober advice about the best possible options regarding:

High net worth divorce

Child support

Alimony, spousal support and spousal maintenance

Tax considerations

Property division and distribution

Methods of distribution

Non-marital property

Protecting your assets

Protecting your business

In my 35 years as an attorney, the vast majority of my clients have been satisfied and proud of the work we have done together. See my client testimonials here.
