Will Sullivan is unquestionably the best family law attorney you could possibly hire. I was involved in a custody dispute that began in North Carolina and moved to New York when I was falsely accused by my ex-wife (who resides in New York) of abusing my daughters. After having to fire three different attorneys in North Carolina before the case moved to New York, I could not have been more pleased that I found Will. You cannot possibly find an attorney who genuinely cares as much as Will, or who works as hard as Will, or who is as smart and talented as Will. I went from being falsely accused and having my parental rights threatened to having custody of my two daughters. It is because of Will that my darkest days led to my brightest days. As I’ve shared with Will numerous times, his genuine caring, tireless hard work and incredibly sharp mind really changed my life in such an amazing way. There’s simply no way that I’d have custody of my two daughters unless I had hired Will. You just cannot make a better choice whatever issues you are facing. He’s truly the best.

I hired Will to represent me in my divorce and again to enforce a child support order. I was very pleased with both outcomes. I've since hired him again to defend my case when my ex filed a frivolous downward modification. Will was successful in having the case dismissed. Will continues to be fair, honest, practical and knowledgeable. He has a great sense of humor and is calm when I'm not. Knowing my legal matters are in Will's hands brings me peace. I know I don't have to worry because he knows the law and always puts me at ease. I would never hesitate to refer a friend or family member to Will. He is a great attorney.

I came to Mr. Sullivan today seeking a second opinion about the actions of my current divorce attorney, a local country lawyer. Two financial advisers had criticized the guy. So I asked two other local attorneys, who both said that my attorney had made a costly mistake. Sounded pretty damning, but I had a gut feeling I should check further, since other parts of their advice did not check out. So I got another recommendation from a source I could trust, who pointed me to Mr. Sullivan... for a third second opinion. Mr. Sullivan did NOT try to poach me as a client. Instead, he told me that my local country lawyer had actually done exactly the right thing. He did not try to undermine my confidence in my own attorney, even tho' that might have got him my business, and that was exactly what two other attorney's tried to do. Instead, he explained how the point in question worked in the Suffolk County courts, and why he would have done pretty much the same thing.

William Sullivan has always remained the same lawyer I hired him as throughout my 4 year divorce process : Responsive, knowledgable, informative and trustworthy. A lawyer needs to be the right fit for you and your case. Whether you need a lion in the court room, a family man who understands the love you have for your children - Will is also an ethical person who can help you rest peacefully at night knowing you're doing right in this world. William Sullivan will follow your lead as he allows his clients to have a voice. Additionally, his level of expertise lends a calming experience to what can be the most of stressful situations. This among so many other things separates him from the rest.

Will represented me in a divorce action. This was a drawn out, contested case that went to trial. He was the second attorney I hired as my first attorney was non-responsive and did not deliver the service I expected of them. Will, on the other hand, has continuously kept me informed and delivered excellent results. Will is someone with integrity, who has kept his word and was impressive in the courtroom. I would highly recommend him in any matrimonial action.

My wife and I retained Attorney Sullivan after she was served child custody paperwork related to her previous marriage. We are from out of State and were not familiar with New York child custody laws. I work with attorneys on a daily basis and know that there are good attorneys and bad attorneys out there. Because of my background, my initial meeting with him surrounded me finding out whether he is the type of attorney who is only good at motions to the court (and not a good trial attorney), or is he the type of attorney who is a good trial attorney, one who is going to stand up for your rights and not back down before the Judge and the other attorney.
Attorney Sullivan immediately put my wife at ease. He fully explained the court process and described in detail what to expect during this trying period in our lives. I reviewed the cross motions and found that Attorney Sullivan was confidant, articulate and extremely well versed in New York Laws.
Attorney Sullivan then represented us at the hearings. Here is where many attorney fail. Many attorneys boast about what they can do and what they are going to do at trial, but I have seen many attorneys fall apart. This was not the case. Attorney Sullivan was absolutely amazing. He continued to exude his confidence, his knowledge of New York Laws and then was still able to keep my wife at ease at the same time (and this is no easy matter!!)
At the end of this 2 year ordeal (yes, it sometimes takes that long), we ended up winning EVERY motion that was filed before the court.
We were not just a number in Attorney Sullivan’s Office. Attorney Sullivan showed kindness and compassion when we needed him the most. Attorney Sullivan showed and proved to us that he was also an amazing trial attorney.
Words cannot describe how thankful we are in finding Attorney Sullivan. If you have the opportunity to retain Attorney Sullivan, you are going to be in excellent hands. Thank you Attorney Sullivan!!!

I retained Mr Sullivan after I was served papers for divorce . Knowing nothing about this at all , I was extremely scared. William Sullivan answered my questions and put my mind at ease. Going through a divorce isn't easy , but he gave advice that worked. His sense of humor and passion for his job made it clear to me that everything would work out. He's trustworthy , firm , yet compassionate . He put my needs and the needs of my child first. He helped me understand the law and when to compromise or when to speak up and say 'no' . He helped me stand up for myself and if I ever doubted myself , I'd contact him and he always responded . I'd definitely recommend William Sullivan .

Will Sullivan's knowledge and expertise in divorce law has helped me through a difficult time. He has been reliable, accessible and aggressive when it was warranted and all with a sense of humor at the same time. I would highly recommend Will for representation, he also has an excellent paralegal Lisa Oppici.

I met Will on New Years Eve, about 4 years ago. I retained him to assist on a bogus OOP my ex filed against me. First off I'd like to say one thing that impressed me was his genuine interest in my case, and his availability. It was always easy to reach him and any/all issues, questions and concerns were addressed in a timely manner. With his knowledge of family law, he was very reassuring and explained everything in layman's terms. With our first appearance on the OOP case he was able to have it vacated immediately. I was so impressed with not just his knowledge, but with his courtroom mannerisms, that I hired him on 2-3 more cases including a custody case which he helped me win. And with each case he would explain just what needs to be done and how the process works step by step. I would definitely recommend and rehire him if needed. To sum it up, Will Sullivan is an attorney who handles himself professionally in the courtroom, I like to say 'professionally polite'. He can harpoon his adversary in front of a judge without ever raising his voice, he simply allows his knowledge of the law and impeccable timing in presenting his point to shut down the opposition in a professional manner. He is extremely competent with current family law, maintains excellent communication with his clients and truly defends his clients as if they were a member of his personal family. In the past 4 years working with Will, I felt more like a brother/best friend rather then 'just another client or paycheck'. If you want a highly competent attorney that will take your case and handle it like he's personally involved, then you need to meet with Will. I'm sure after meeting with him you will hire him. You will leave his office feeling confident in his ability and professionalism and any stress caused by your current situation, will be greatly reduced after meeting with Will and seeing him in action. Again, I hope to never need his services in the future, but if I do there's no other attorney I would even consider.

From the second I spoke with Will on the phone, I knew he was the right fit for my case, which involved my 3 year old daughter at the time. I wanted someone who was a family man and who also carried the right balance of "tiger" when needed. His confidence and integrity, along with his zest for life and passion for what he does is contagious, reminding me each time we spoke or met that I made the right decision in choosing him. It was also important I hired someone who was experienced but also took the time to listen to what I had to say and respect my comfort level. He followed my lead in the pace I wanted to go and I am pleased to say I am satisfied with the outcome of my divorce agreement. Will and his team have allowed me to provide the very best for my daughter: a life of consistency and love from both her mother and father.
