What We Do

Matrimonial & Family Law

MRNT’s matrimonial and family law practice is pre-eminent in the field. Our attorneys’ decades of experience serve to benefit our clients in myriad ways, whether the matter is an out-of-court settlement, litigated through trial and/or appeal, or is resolved through mediation. MRNT’s attorneys and staff endeavor to strategize long term, realistic and practical solutions, to minimize costs and to achieve the best possible results for our clients.

We represent both high-net-worth individuals and individuals of more modest means. While zealously advocating for our clients, we remain cognizant that issues effecting families, whether it be divorce, custodial and/or support issues, domestic violence, negotiating pre or post-nuptial agreements, or enforcement proceedings, are sensitive issues that can be stress-inducing and emotionally charged. We strive to provide each client with individual attention and understand that each client has their own unique set of facts and circumstances.
