About Me

For over 20 years,  I have been helping clients in both Nassau and Queens Counties in the areas of family and divorce law.    In these uncertain and

difficult economic times, it is important to learn your legal rights.   I have

worked with clients facing these emotional issues and have obtained

effective results for clients by providing agressive reputation in a cost-effective

manner.     Our legal services are affordable and we accept credit card

and allow for payment plans on most legal matters.

  • Michael Dreishpoon

    Mr. Scheinman is an excellent attorney who fights hard for his clients. I have known him personally and professionally for nearly 20 years and can vouch for his legal skills in and out of the courtroom. I refer family law cases to him all of the time because I know that he'll always do his best, has reasonable fees and a ton of experience.
