Serving New York City For More Than 40 Years

Family Law Representation From An Experienced NYC Attorney

I am attorney Barry Abbott of Abbott Law PLLC. I have more than 40 years of experience representing New York citizens in divorce and family law matters.

Over the course of my career, I have been AV Preeminent peer-review rated* through Martindale-Hubbell, have been consistently selected for including in Super Lawyers, have served on the Executive Committee of the Family Law Section of the NYS Bar Association, have served as the attorney co-chair of the Interdisciplinary Forum on Mental Health and Family Law, and was invited by my peers to join the faculty of the NY College of Matrimonial Trial Attorneys. My writing has been published in the NY Family Law Monthly and The Matrimonial Strategist.

While I have a proven track record in both litigated divorces and mediated divorce settlements, I believe part of my strength as a family law attorney lies in my life outside of my work. When not in the office, I indulge in my passion for music, which I fell in love with when I was in grade school. I started playing guitar as soon as I persuaded my parents that classical piano was not for me – my first successful appeal. A devoted father, I coached my sons in soccer and baseball, imparting to them my love for athletics, competition and teamwork. Now that they are far from the nest, I enjoy indulging my golden retriever, whose admirable ability to fetch is only surpassed by her inability to “drop it.”

How I Help My Clients

When my clients come to me for help, I take the time to learn about the unique factors of their case to develop a custom-tailored plan to help them with the details of divorcing their spouse or trying to secure the custody arrangement they deserve.

At my law firm, I strive to balance being both a legal advocate as well as a legal counselor for my clients. I work closely with professionals to take an interdisciplinary approach to my cases so I am able to address my client’s problems effectively and appropriately.
