New York’s Leading Family Law Attorneys
Quatela Chimeri, PLLC
When Divorce and Business Matters Intersect
Under the very best of circumstances, the family dynamic has complexities. When you factor in a decision to divorce and intertwine substantive business matters, your movement forward in life can be somewhat debilitating.
“Our firm not only recognizes that divorce isn’t one dimensional, but our firm’s business model is predicated on just that. Our approach is both focused and holistic,” said Christopher J. Chimeri, partner at Quatela Chimeri. “Like other firms that concentrate exclusively on divorce and family matters, we have attorneys who handle those matters exclusively. Additionally, and equally important, our firm is rounded out by seasoned attorneys who specialize in federal and state commercial and civil litigation as well as transactional business matters, yielding a broader base of experience on which to draw upon in complex financial divorce matters,” Chimeri added.
“In high net-worth divorces, the outcome may impact a business interest, retirement assets and family legacies. Our business law acumen and team of experienced commercial and civil litigators fortifies our strategic advocacy to help ensure your overall interests are protected,” said Chimeri. His partner, Joseph Quatela, a seasoned litigator with over 30 years of experience, added, “As a premier trial and appellate advocacy firm, you can rest assured that our trial lawyers excel at drilling down forensically to ascertain accurate valuation. Our goal is to achieve optimal results for our clients with cost efficiency to allow you to move forward with confidence.”
Responsive and Welcoming
Pressing issues, questions and concerns don’t arise conveniently and schedule themselves neatly within business hours, and our firm understands that. The attorneys at Quatela Chimeri are available to you when you need to speak with us, very often outside normal business hours. “We pride ourselves in being available to meet with you later in the evening or on weekends when necessary,” expressed Chimeri.
That responsiveness can yield immediate results. The firm has a proven track record of obtaining relief from courts in emergent circumstances. In one instance, the firm was consulted and retained at 11:00 a.m., and five hours later, successfully obtained an injunction preventing the terms of an unjust court order from being implemented to the detriment of a family’s children.
Pioneers in Advocacy
Quatela Chimeri is also widely recognized for welcoming clients that have not been with met with the same level of enthusiasm by other civil law firms. Led by Chimeri, the firm’s unwavering dedication to the LGBT community is noteworthy for providing guidance and advocacy for same-sex couples and LGBT individuals for more than 25 years. Chimeri was the lead attorney on several recent landmark appellate decisions involving gay and lesbian couples. He has successfully argued on behalf of numerous clients to allow the estranged same-sex partner of a biological parent to seek custody and visitation rights.
