2018 New York's Leading Family Law Attorneys
Burger & Green, LLP
Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Pre- & Postnuptial Agreements
From offices in Midtown Manhattan’s historic Graybar Building, the attorneys of Burger & Green, LLP work to provide high-quality family law services to clients throughout New York and internationally. For years, the firm’s attorneys have served as proud and active members of New York’s legal community, and they bring considerable experience and legal knowledge to the area of matrimonial law.
“Our clients have varying backgrounds, professions, and income levels, but what they all share is a need for trusted representation on these sensitive issues,” says partner Barbara Burger, who has been handling family law for more than 40 years. “The matters we deal with, such as divorce and child custody, go to the very essence of our clients’ lives, so we feel a tremendous responsibility to realize their goals.”
Attorneys at the firm have successfully represented their clients’ interests in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, child custody, international child custody agreements, child support, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and international child abduction (Hague) cases. The firm also provides services for real estate transactions, representing buyers and sellers in residential and commercial real estate closings and works closely with outside counsel (attorneys Germana F. Giordano and Rosa Marzano) with regard to criminal, corporate, immigration and real estate matters.
“We take a custom-tailor approach when representing our clients because no two cases are the same,” notes partner Nancy Green, who began practicing with Burger in 1995. “Divorce can be very difficult for people, and to make this time more manageable for them, we try to connect with our clients on a personal level and really walk them through the divorce process.”
For this reason, the firm obtains much of its work through referrals from past clients as well as from other lawyers. Indeed, the firm is well respected in the legal community, with its members receiving recognition in Super Lawyers and serving in prominent bar organizations, such as the New York State Bar, New York Women’s Bar, New York County Lawyers Association, and New York City Bar Associations. Both Burger and Green are listed in Super Lawyers. Both Burger and Green are also members of the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators and the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.
