Our firm is known throughout New York for its honest, cost-effective and direct approach to divorce and family law cases. Attorney Shari R. Gordon represents clients for over 30 years with their divorce and family law matters.

Tippins.
Separation & Settlement
When couples have decided to separate and obtain a divorce, sometimes they have an agreement in mind that they both feel they can live with, or perhaps they have agreed on a general framework, but need an experienced attorney to help them negotiate the details. In these cases, obtaining a separation or settlement agreement with the guidance of an experienced attorney can be a good way to avoid protracted litigation, reduce legal fees and keep potential conflict to a minimum.
If you are seeking to directly negotiate the terms of your divorce with your spouse, but need help establishing a framework for discussion, enlisting the help of an experienced mediator to guide you through the process could be your best option. We act as a neutral third party in this process, guiding couples through negotiations by presenting clear questions that need to be resolved before an agreement can be finalized.
