Attorney David Elbaum is a partner with Dobrish Michaels Gross LLP law firm in New York, New York. A lawyer since 2001, where he focused primarily on constitutional law and civil rights, Mr. Elbaum shifted his focus to family law in 2006, and since that time, he has achieved considerable success assisting clients throughout New York City and beyond who are going through a divorce or have other serious legal issues affecting their families.

Handling all areas of family law, Mr. Elbaum provides invaluable counsel and support to his clients who need to address their issues involving child custody and support, spousal support, equitable distribution of assets, and other related matters. In addition, he handles all aspects of drafting and enforcing pre- and postnuptial agreements as well as post-judgment modifications, and he has handled numerous legal matters for nontraditional families along with the establishment of cohabitation agreements.

Mr. Elbaum also has extensive experience in accounting, which enables him to better address the financial aspects of his clients' divorces, particularly for those with considerable assets, in order to increase the likelihood they will achieve their fair share of the marital estate. He is a staunch advocate for the rights of parents in paternity actions, and he has successfully argued a number of appeals on behalf of his clients seeking the favorable outcomes they deserve.

No matter the issues his clients need to address, Mr. Elbaum encourages his clients' active participation in the process, and he often employs a collaborative approach to help them resolve their conflicts and reach agreements in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible. Having earned consistent top rakings and endorsements from his peers, he measures his success by how well his clients respond to their legal challenges and move forward in their lives with optimism and confidence.

A 1997 graduate of the Queens College, City University of New York, Mr. Elbaum attended Fordham University School of Law, where he obtained his Juris Doctor in 2001. He is an active member of the New York State Bar Association's Family Law Section, and he currently serves on the organization's legislation committee. He is also a member of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York and past member of its matrimonial law committee.
