Meredith A. Lusthaus practices in all areas of family and matrimonial law and has focused her entire legal career on these matters. As a divorce lawyer, Meredith is an aggressive litigator and a fierce negotiator with more than two and a half decades of legal experience inside and outside the courtroom. Meredith has earned the well-deserved respect of the bench and bar and a reputation for being a highly skilled, results-oriented litigator. Her clients regard her as being extremely knowledgeable and a tough but tactful litigator who can easily explain complex legal issues in a way that laypersons can well understand. Meredith is more than willing to meet any reasonable request of her clients.
Meredith's legal work on behalf of a client — a husband who wanted his fair share of the equity in the marital home, even though he obtained an out-of-state divorce — helped establish the New York state precedent that an out-of-state divorce does not bar the distribution of the parties' property held within New York state. Meredith's work in this matter secured her client's interest in his property and brought to conclusion his five-year interstate quest for a divorce and equitable distribution. Meredith keeps in touch with the grateful client to this day.
