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.

Coffinas & Lusthaus, P.C. understands the emotions that come with initiating or responding to divorce proceedings. For almost 20 years, we've met with clients in states of anger, confusion, uncertainty and fear. With our personalized and highly professional approach to representation, we guide our clients through the challenges of a New York divorce, capably asserting their rights to a fair outcome. With hard work and tenacity, we get you to the place you can declare, "Wait 'til next year!" with confidence.

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. consistently delivers.
  • 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.
