Family Law


The Law Office of Robert S. Sunshine provides comprehensive and affordable family law representation that produces long-term solutions. We bring a hard-edged, trial attorney approach that was honed while working for large New York City firms. This has allowed us to take on difficult cases and employ our trial experience in order to prevail when others involved thought we had no chance.

We are not afraid to take complex cases. In fact, a sizable percentage of our caseload comes from referrals by other lawyers and clients who grew exasperated with their first lawyer.

While we make every attempt to reach agreement in pretrial negotiation sessions, attorney Robert S. Sunshine has extensive courtroom experience, and will not hesitate to advocate on your behalf in court if an agreement cannot be reached. We have won seemingly unwinnable custody cases for both fathers and mothers.

Our office also handles modification of original divorce, support or custody decrees. We are prepared to demonstrate why your divorce agreement needs to be modified in light of a substantial change in circumstances. Or, if you have been served with such an action by your former spouse, we can challenge those efforts to modify the divorce agreement.

We handle the full spectrum of family law issues, including:

  • Divorce
  • Child Custody
  • Child Support
  • Marital Abuse Issues
  • Modifications
  • Division of property
  • Paternity issues
  • Adoptions (including stepparent adoptions)
