In the past, custody was typically awarded to the mother in Long Island divorce cases or custody disputes. Although the courts try to award joint custody more recently, this does not always occur and a father's rights may be easily overlooked. It is my goal as an attorney to properly represent my clients' interests in these cases while seeking the custody arrangement they are looking to achieve. Let me apply my knowledge, experience and resources to your case as I protect your rights as a father and help you get custody of your children.
