Mr. Wallack provides advice, counsel and zealous representation regrarding issues such as divorce, equitable distribution, child custody and visitation, child support, and alimony. Mr. Wallack also assists people seeking modification to, or the enforcement of, existing agreements and court orders. And, he regularly prepares and reviews prenuptial, postnuptial and separation agreements, and helps victims of domestic violence obtain appropriate orders of protection.

He appears frequently on NBC's 'Today' show, ABC's 'The View' and CBS’ ‘Entertainment Tonight’ as a legal analyst and commentator. He is also a contributor to the The Huffington Post and serves as the legal advisor to ‘Blue Bloods’ on CBS, and 'General Hospital' on ABC.
