Options for Divorce
Berkman Bottger Newman & Schein is one of the largest family law firms in New York offering three ways to divorce: litigation, collaborative law, and mediation. While litigation can be necessary when spouses simply cannot agree on financial or custody matters, a collaborative process or mediation offer a lower conflict way to divorce that can also be less expensive. Our team of trained, elite lawyers help clients decide what process is right for their needs. We pride ourselves on having a deep bench of attorneys who can advocate zealously in court when a divorce calls for it, or successfully mediate a resolution that satisfies both spouses.
