Brooklyn Divorce Attorneys
Tenacious Pursuit of Fair Outcomes in Divorces
No city is more focused on winning than Brooklyn, and New Yorkers accept
the demands of competing here with stoicism and resolve. Brooklyn is famously
obstinate in the face of defeat. We coined the phrase "Wait 'til
next year!" and turned it into a rallying cry. Yet, when the moment
finally comes to admit our marriage is over, our façade chips away,
and we feel something Brooklynites rarely feel: vulnerable.

Hire Our Established Firm to Manage All Aspects of Your Case
Clients come to us from all over the five boroughs, Nassau, and Westchester for help
filing for divorce in New York. Since 1997, our Brooklyn divorce lawyers have established a solid track
record of favorable outcomes for our clients. In negotiations, at trial,
and on appeal, we augment our legal knowledge with creative strategies
that deliver positive results. We assist with:
No-fault divorce - In October 2010, New York state adopted a form of
no-fault divorce, eliminating the requirement that couples prove grounds, such as abandonment,
adultery, cruelty, or incarceration. Now one party can simply allege that
the marriage has had an irretrievable breakdown, saving them the time
and torment of litigating that issue.
Uncontested divorce - In New York, an uncontested divorce is the quickest and least costly
way to dissolve a marriage. To obtain an uncontested divorce, the couple
must present the court with a signed divorce settlement agreement. Getting
to a fair agreement is often a challenge; Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C.
Contested divorce - When a couple cannot deliver a complete divorce settlement agreement, they
must litigate any issues. The contested issues are usually the most complex
and emotionally charged, including child custody, spousal support, and
property distribution. We combine legal knowledge and creative thinking
to resolve even the thorniest custody and support issues. In addition,
we've demonstrated time and again that we have the capacity, even
as a small firm, to protect our clients' interests in the division
of high-asset marital estates.
Efficient Resolutions to Atypical Cases
nearly 50 years of combined experience, we have done more than practice family law: We've helped shape the
development of the law through our victories on appeal. As innovative
legal minds, we're always looking for ways to serve our client’s
same-sex couples and couples who have reason to prefer a
legal separation or annulment to a divorce. We also have extensive experience in managing
the unique custody and support requirements of
special needs children. Whatever your goals are for your future, our team can help you find the
