Donato Palumbo, White Plains, NY divorce lawyer
Picking an attorney for a legal matter is never easy. Choosing a lawyer to represent you in a New York divorce case is that much harder. And choosing the right lawyer to represent you through a New York divorce action is likely the single most important thing you, as the client, can do.
There are several things that differentiate me from other NY lawyers and law firms that you should consider when deciding whether or not to retain my office. First and foremost, I have been in your shoes. Years ago, before I was an attorney or a law student, I was married and found myself getting divorced. Just like you, I was looking for a lawyer. Just like you I did not understand the process and was uncertain about my future. I spoke to many lawyers and was frustrated when they did not speak to me in plain English.
I have modeled my practice on the lawyer, or the type of lawyer I wish I had found years ago. I counsel and assist my clients through the divorce process with a full understanding of their fears, concerns and emotions. I explain things to my clients in plain English and fully explain the ramifications of each step of the process; and I promptly return phone calls.
However it is not just a prior divorce that helps me understand my clients. I face many of the same issues as the people that hire me. I have taken my own advice when I got re-married, and executed a prenuptial agreement. Then, due to the birth of children and my spouse’s job, my business, and the economics of our marriage changing. Consequently, I executed a postnuptial agreement. I am in a fantastic position to help you because I know what you are going through.
Another thing that sets me apart from other lawyers is that I have not always been a lawyer. I did not go from high school to college to law school. I worked my way through college doing manual labor most of the time. I have worked as a construction mechanic, in sales, owned my own personal training business, and even worked in government service for a while. The totality of my frame of reference is not as a kid whose daddy was a lawyer, became an attorney at age 26, and inherited a thriving law practice. Like most of my clients, I have been an “outsider looking in” to the legal world. Like you I am turned off at the self-importance of many lawyers. I think my time spend prior to gaining admission to the New York Bar, and becoming an attorney makes me a better attorney in explaining the law to my clients and understanding their true needs and feelings.
I am a total solo practitioner. Except for a part time legal secretary it’s just me. This means that when you hire Donato Palumbo you get Donato Palumbo. With technology today it is simple to get voice messages on an automated basis and there is no excuse for failure to promptly return phone calls. It is a pet peeve of mine when people, especially those you are giving business to, fail to return a call. So I always promptly return calls.
A N.Y. divorce can be complex. There are issues of child custody, debt and asset distribution, property distribution, real property, support, maintenance, alimony, and child support. This requires economic evaluations of businesses, professional licenses and college degrees, as well as 3rd party evaluations pertaining to custody of the children. Because of this, I have surrounded myself with a network of accountants, forensic accountants, psychologists, investigators, and the like, to provide the evidence needed to get our clients the results they are looking for.
I also maintain an acute understanding that your time is valuable. That is why I strategically located my law office in White Plains, New York. This is close to the Westchester County divorce court as well as in the center of Westchester County. However, if this is not convenient to you I am willing to meet you at another location. Just as important as time, I understand the value of money. I did not grow up in the lap of luxury, and I understand how hard you work for your money and how expensive legal services can be. Because of this I maintain competitive prices for my services and try to maximize the amount of time I spend on your case so that you can get the greatest value from my service.
