Attorney Profile

Joseph Paul Drescher is an associate attorney at Colwell Law. Based in Albany, New York, he focuses his practice exclusively on family law matters, providing advice and counsel to clients throughout Albany and Schenectady counties and the surrounding areas. Admitted to practice before all New York state courts since 2017, Mr. Drescher is also admitted to practice in Massachusetts.

Mr. Drescher's family law practice primarily entails his representing people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are accordingly having to deal with such divorce-related issues as the division of complex assets and debts, child custody and visitation, and spousal and child support. An accomplished trial attorney when litigation proves to be necessary, his knowledge of alternative dispute resolution often allows him to help them reach an accord on some of these matters through those less-adversarial methods. Mr. Drescher's family law experience extends far beyond divorce issues. He has prepared and reviewed prenuptial agreements, and his background has also encompassed paternity establishment and disputes, adoptions, and fathers' rights. Mr. Drescher has also represented victims of domestic violence who are seeking protective orders, and for his clients whose marriages have already been dissolved, he has helped them obtain the enforcement of or modifications to existing parenting and support orders.

As an undergraduate, Mr. Drescher attended Siena College, where he majored in political science and marketing and received a Bachelor of Arts in 2011. He then pursued his legal studies at Suffolk University Law School, and he was a certified student practitioner at both the Worcester County District Attorney's Office and the Middlesex County District Attorney's Office before being awarded his Juris Doctor in 2014. A member of the Albany County Bar Association, Mr. Drescher has been with Colwell Law since 2018.
