When you are facing the breakdown of your marriage, the emotional challenges you face can make it difficult to know what’s in your best interests. If you have minor children, you may struggle to know what type of custody and visitation arrangements will benefit them most. What about support—how will the court determine that? And how will you fairly divide the debts and assets accumulated over the years? You want an experienced, knowledgeable and compassionate attorney to advise you. Chris Palermo can help.
At the law office of Chris Palermo, Esq., we have successfully represented men and women in Smithtown and across Long Island for more than 13 years, handling a wide range of divorce and family law issues. We place a premium on personal service and attention—we care about you and will use all our experience, knowledge, skill and resources to help you get the outcome you want. Our staff will keep you involved and informed at all times, so that you know where you stand and what your options are, and can make good decisions about how you want to proceed. We strive to return all e-mails and calls within 24 hours.
We handle all matters related to divorce and family law disputes, from the initial filing of a complaint through negotiated settlements, mediation or trial. Attorney Palermo will carefully gather and evaluate all evidence to support your case, and will prepare and file any documentation required as a part of the legal process. Chris will also be a strong voice for you in any hearings or proceedings.
We know that divorce proceedings can be contentious, but we don’t believe they have to be nasty. Whenever possible, we will seek to implement cooperative solutions, working with opposing counsel to determine what’s in everyone’s best interests. However, Chris is an effective and experienced litigator who is never afraid to take your case to trial to get the results you want and deserve.
