Our Philosophy

In most cases, a negotiated, out of court settlement is preferable to litigation. Negotiated settlements are less stressful — and less expensive — allowing you to maintain more control over your future. In instances when a case cannot be resolved without litigation, be assured, we will aggressively pursue, through the Court, the best possible outcome. For over 60 years we have built a reputation as litigators. Of course, we would rather settle your case but if it does go to trial, you have a capable and reputable litigator on your side.

Our Business Practices

All of our systems and processes have been implemented exclusively for family law. This singular focus makes us more efficient and effective on your behalf.  Your legal team at Brodsky Renehan Pearlstein & Bouquet combines a senior partner along with associate attorneys and legal support staff. We never double bill for attorneys which means that when a partner and associate are working on the same item you won’t be billed for both. We are also a strong proponent of using technology to increase efficiency and reduce client expense.

Personal issues associated with family law are emotionally overwhelming. We understand how difficult the situations can be – whether it’s protecting your children or your financial future. We always strive to secure a resolution that most appropriately responds to your needs.
