Effective And Efficient Solutions To Family Law Issues

At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, our Westchester County divorce and mediation attorneys will help you choose the best method of resolving your family law concerns. We understand the time, energy and resources that any legal issue can entail, so we strive at all times to resolve your matter in an efficient, respectful manner.

Divorce and other family disputes can involve a wide variety of issues. Regardless of your divorce or family law matter, we are dedicated to helping you reach a resolution that will protect your relationship with your children and address your financial interests.

We Focus On What's Best For You

We use our training, experience and commitment to each client to achieve a positive result, rather than let the divorce process make a challenging transition worse. Whether through the use of collaborative law, mediation, negotiation or litigation, our objective is to resolve your family law issues effectively and efficiently so you can start the next phase of your life.

We will help you decide upon the process to end your marriage that will suit you and your family best:

  • Collaborative divorce: This is a structured, cost-efficient and confidential process to settle your matter without going to court. In fact, in the collaborative divorce process, the parties and their attorneys sign an agreement agreeing to resolve issues outside of a trial. If litigation becomes necessary, each party must seek new counsel. With this added incentive to reach a resolution outside of court, both spouses seek the best financial and custody solutions through problem solving and effective communication.
  • Negotiated settlements: This process employs principles of the collaborative law process with the option to access the courts, if necessary.
  • Mediation: In divorce mediation, a neutral professional, known as a mediator, facilitates settlement between spouses that meets both of their interests.
  • Litigation: If protecting your interests requires court intervention, as seasoned attorneys, we will represent you and work to protect your financial, support and family interests in litigation.

Whatever process you choose, it is our goal to help you transition to the next chapter in your life to help you remain whole financially and to achieve peace of mind.
