Attorney Profile

An attorney at Brettschneider & Brettschneider LLP, Joseph M. Brettschneider focuses his practice exclusively on divorce and other family law matters. From the firm's office in Huntington, New York, he furnishes representation to clients throughout Suffolk and Nassau counties. Mr. Brettschneider has been admitted to practice before all New York state courts since 1987.

The majority of Mr. Brettschneider's client base is made up of people who are facing the end of their marriages and who are thus having to deal with such related legal issues as child custody and visitation, alimony, child support, and the division of complex assets and debts. A forceful courtroom advocate when litigation is necessary, his extensive training in mediation and his skill in handling negotiations often allow him to help some of his clients reach an accord on these matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. Mr. Brettschneider has also prepared and reviewed prenuptial agreements, and he assists clients whose marriages have already been legally dissolved and who are now seeking the enforcement of or modifications to existing support and parenting orders. His successful track record has led to a great deal of recognition from his colleagues, including an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Brettschneider attended the University of Pennsylvania, where he majored in comparative literature and received a Bachelor of Arts with honors in 1979. Subsequently deciding to pursue a legal education, he enrolled at what is now known as the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1986. Mr. Brettschneider's professional memberships include the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary. Martindale-Hubbell® Peer Review Rating™ fall into two categories – legal ability and general ethical standards.
