HDRB&B’s Matrimonial & Family Department is dedicated to helping clients navigate the complex and often contentious process of divorce, while providing compassionate and results-driven representation. We counsel both individuals, heterosexual and same-sex couples in a wide range of matters involving personal, emotional, and sensitive legal issues that affect every aspect of families in transition.
Our team handles both routine and complex cases involving high-profile individuals in collaborative and adversarial processes from mediation and out-of-court negotiated settlements to matters involving protracted litigation. We recognize that not every case requires a traditional courtroom approach, and we are proud to offer alternative dispute resolution options such as mediation and arbitration.
In particular, we are pleased to have the Honorable Judge Peter J. Melchionne (Ret.) as a valuable member of our team, bringing his extensive experience in mediation and arbitration. With Judge Melchionne’s expertise, we are able to guide our clients through the mediation and arbitration processes, providing them with fair and efficient resolutions to their disputes. Judge Melchionne’s background and knowledge in family law make him a trusted neutral party who can help facilitate productive conversations and assist in reaching mutually beneficial agreements.
Our team works closely with other HDRB&B practice groups in the areas of corporate, real estate, criminal, and trusts and estates to properly and holistically evaluate each case so our clients receive the best possible result. Whether it’s through traditional litigation, mediation, or arbitration, we are committed to finding the most effective approach for our clients’ unique circumstances and achieving the best possible outcome for them and their families.
