"...made the entire process very easy and extremely fast."
I had the pleasure of working with Riley Perry , for my uncontested divorce. She made the entire process very easy and extremely fast. Within seven days of meeting with her, she wrote and the divorce papers and they were signed by my soon to be ex wife and I. I would highly recommend this firm to all friends or family in need.
"He made you feel like he was your best friend..."
After getting a bad divorce deal with my original divorce lawyer Chris was able to help broker a more equitable deal for me. Chris always got back to me within hours be it email or call. His negotiating skills are top notch. He made u feel like he was your best friend and helped with tough decision. My only regret is not going to him sooner.

Experience You Can Count On
The Divorce Process
Understanding the divorce process is crucial, as it can often be overwhelming and emotionally challenging. Chris Palermo and Riley Perry will be your dedicated advocates throughout the following key stages:
Your journey begins with an initial consultation. During this meeting, we will discuss your unique situation, goals, and concerns. This is an opportunity for you to get to know us and for us to evaluate the merits of your case. Your initial consultation with us is always free.
Filing for Divorce
We will guide you through the process of filing for divorce, ensuring that all the necessary paperwork is completed accurately and on time. Our extensive experience in East Hampton divorce cases enables us to streamline this process for you.
In cases involving child custody or financial matters, we can help you obtain temporary orders that protect your interests until the final divorce decree is issued.
The discovery phase involves gathering all the necessary information and evidence to build a strong case on your behalf. This may include financial records, child custody evaluations, and more.
Negotiation and Settlement
We will work tirelessly to reach a fair and just settlement that addresses your specific needs and concerns. In uncontested divorces, this process can be more straightforward, while in contested divorces, negotiations may be more complex.
If a fair settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, we are prepared to represent you in court. Our extensive litigation experience ensures that your rights and interests are vigorously protected.
Our commitment doesn’t end with the final divorce decree. We are here to assist you with post-divorce modifications, enforcement, and any other legal issues that may arise after the divorce is finalized.
Divorce Litigation vs. Mediation
Understanding the difference between divorce litigation and mediation is crucial for making informed decisions during your divorce journey.
Divorce litigation is the traditional legal process of resolving divorce disputes through the court system. It is often necessary when couples can’t agree on key issues and need a judge to make decisions for them. In litigation, each party retains their own attorney to advocate on their behalf, and the judge ultimately determines the outcome. While it is an effective way to resolve complex disputes, it can be emotionally draining and expensive.
Mediation is a collaborative and less adversarial approach to divorce. In mediation, a neutral third party, known as the mediator, helps the couple communicate and negotiate to reach a mutually acceptable agreement. Mediation is often faster, less costly, and less emotionally taxing than litigation. It empowers the parties to make decisions about their future and is particularly beneficial when the couple wishes to maintain an amicable relationship for the sake of children or other shared interests.
