Mara Bernstein knows that divorce does not have to tear families apart and leave them financially insecure.
A seasoned Family and Marital law attorney in New York City and Florida, Mara understands that divorce is not one dimensional or one size fits all. For this reason Mara, a veteran divorce litigator, has added Collaborative Divorce and Divorce Mediation to her arsenal. Through an initial consult, Mara assesses her client’s needs, objectives and goals and clearly lays out a strategy and legal approach designed to create positive results while minimizing the impacts of divorce.
Her clients have described her as an attentive, empathetic advocate who gets results in the most cost and time efficient manner. Opposing counsel describe Mara as unwavering and relentless in pursuit of her clients interests but that she is also rational, ethical and effective in resolving cases without unnecessary fees and drama.
As a steadfast advocate and resource for her clients, Mara places tremendous value on building open and accessible communication with her clients helping them to feel protected and supported throughout the divorce process.
