A Holistic Approach to Issues Affecting Children

Ostertag O’Leary Barrett & Faulkner takes a holistic approach to solving the legal challenges that affect children. This means that, when we take a case, we look at the entire picture to highlight potential sources of conflict and options for solutions. Our diverse backgrounds and extensive legal experience help us to do this.

We then develop a strategy for success. This strategy is based on years of experience in New York State courtrooms, including knowledge of the ways children are often affected by our states’ laws and courtroom procedures.

What to Expect in Your Initial Consultation

Although we do not offer free consultations, our consultations are exceptionally thorough. They help parents to understand — not just the law on family law in New York State — but the way that the law specifically applies in the situation at hand.

Once your situation is clarified, we take the time to develop options tailored to your specific family law needs. Each situation is unique, and our clients often find they have new options with the help of the experienced attorneys at Ostertag O’Leary Barrett & Faulkner.
