The law firm of Berkman Bottger Newman and Rodd, LLP has been named by U.S. News and World Report magazine as one of the top family law firms in New York for 2012. The U.S. News – Best Lawyers® “Best Law Firms” rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
Based in midtown Manhattan, Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP is a boutique New York divorce law firm that serves clients across New York City, Westchester, and other nearby counties such as Nassau and Suffolk. The law firm is one of the only in New York City that practices all three process choices for divorce: collaborative law, mediation, and litigation.
“The idea that a divorcing couple must be pitted one against the other is a myth which serves only to exacerbate differences, further polarize the parties, waste funds which could better be spent on, say, college, and traumatize the children," said partner Barry Berkman. "At Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, we pride ourselves on our unique ability to guide our clients to lasting, fair, collaborative agreements that work for both parties, protect the children, and conserve marital assets. We do litigate zealously when necessary, but we litigate only when necessary. Recognition as one of the top law firms in the country is a testament to the power and good sense of our approach.”
