Syracuse Parental Rights Lawyer

Dedicated to Protecting Mother's and Father's Rights

Some law firms market themselves as a father's rights firm or a mother's rights firm. While this style of marketing campaign may be effective for some firms, the attorneys at Macht, Brenizer & Gingold take a different approach to the practice of law.

At our firm, we believe that every person has a right to experienced and effective legal counsel. While professional ethics require that we only represent one party in a divorce, our determination is not based on personal politics, catchy ad slogans or a niche marketing campaign.

We understand that mothers and fathers each have rights in a divorce and those rights need protection. Moreover, we understand that mothers and fathers are fighting for the same thing in a divorce:

  • A continued relationship with their children
  • The health and emotional welfare of their children
  • A fair share of their marital property
  • A secure financial future
  • Protection of their financial and parental rights
  • A sense of fairness and closure

We work diligently to pursue these objectives on behalf of each client we represent. We handle all issues that may arise in a divorce case, including property division, spousal abuse, alimony, child support, child custody, visitation and debt allocation.

Particular Areas of Interest

Although husbands and wives have similar objectives in a divorce, there are a few issues that affect mothers and fathers in a disproportionate manner. As experienced family law attorneys, we are sensitive to these issues.

For men, a particular concern is the ability to have sufficient custody and visitation rights after a divorce. Although New York law now states that neither party in a divorce shall enjoy a presumption of custody, many men do suffer from stigmas of the past and outdated concepts of a father's role in the life of a child.

For women, issues of economic equality are important. While an increasing number of women now work full time, a significant number of women still spend a significant period away from work while caring for minor children. While New York law and the courts recognize the financial contribution that stay-at-home mothers make to a marriage, husbands in a divorce are not always as easily convinced. Accordingly, having an experienced attorney ready to fight for your rights is essential.

With more than 75 years of combined legal experience, our partners - Jon W. Brenizer and Harlan B. Gingold - have the ability to handle even the most complex family law disputes. If you need quality legal representation, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with a family law attorney at Macht, Brenizer & Gingold.
