Attorney Profile

Peter M. Nissman is the founder of his eponymous law firm located in New York, New York. He focuses his practice exclusively on family law matters, providing representation to clients throughout the area who are facing the end of their marriage and who need assistance with a variety of divorce-related legal issues.

Mr. Nissman has experience with litigating the often complex matters associated with divorce such as property division, child support, child custody and visitation, and spousal support. In lieu of going to court, he is sometimes able to help a client reach an accord through negotiations with the other spouse and the other spouse's attorney. In other cases, Mr. Nissman will recommend that divorce mediation be pursued, with a neutral third party listening to each side and attempting to reach an agreement that can then be reduced to writing and submitted to the family law court for its approval. He has also prepared and reviewed prenuptial and postnuptial agreements for his clients.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Nissman attended the State University of New York at Binghamton, also commonly referred to as Binghamton University. He graduated in 1986 with a Bachelor of Arts. Mr. Nissman then decided to pursue his legal education, and he enrolled at the University of North Carolina School of Law. In 1989, he was awarded his Juris Doctor and subsequently returned to New York. Mr. Nissman is admitted to practice before all New York state courts.

Always seeking to stay abreast of current developments in his field of practice as well to forge relationships with fellow attorneys, Mr. Nissman is an active participant in several professional organizations. His memberships include the New York State and American bar associations.
