Robert E. Hornberger is a Long Island native, and a graduate of Hofstra University School of Law. Mr. Hornberger received his Bachelors Degree in Philosophy, Politics and Law, and History from the State University of New York at Binghamton. Mr. Hornberger is an experienced matrimonial attorney with a wide background in divorce, divorce mediation, collaborative divorce, family law and bankruptcy matters.
Robert E. Hornberger is licensed to practice law in the State of New York. Mr. Hornberger is an active member in the legal community, including the New York State Bar Association and the Suffolk County Bar Association where he is a member of the alternative dispute resolution committee. Mr. Hornberger is also a director of the Collaborative Law Association of New York, Inc., a not-for-profit organization committed to promoting collaborative dispute resolution as an out-of-courtroom method for helping couples separate or divorce with greater respect, less cost, increased privacy and skilled legal representation.
Mr. Hornberger is committed to the growth of mediationand collaborative divorce as a cost effective alternative to the time-consuming and costly litigation ordinarily required to resolve divorce and other family related matters. Mr. Hornberger believes that families, and most importantly, children, benefit when parents resolve their issues through less adversarial processes such as mediation and collaborative divorce. At the same time, Mr. Hornberger has successfully tried numerous divorce, custody, and other family law related matters in court. Mr. Hornberger is dedicated to his clients, and will always communicate with them regarding each decision to be made in the course of representing them.
Cash, Check, Credit Card
Having worked with Robert on the other side of both litigated and collaborative matters, I know him to be a skilled trial attorney, as well as a pragmatic and adept negotiator. He knows the law; he is even tempered and clear thinking; he finds the most direct path to trial or resolution (savings his clients significant legal fees); and he is always on top of his case files -- promptly returning phone calls, meeting deadlines, and turning out first rate motions, agreements and proposals. Because of Robert's skills and ethics, I have referred even close friends in need of legal representation to him, and would not hesitate to do so again in the future. In the field of matrimonial attorneys, Robert stands out as one of the best in Suffolk County.

I cannot say enough good things about Robert. His desire to represent clients with his whole heart and to the best of his ability is a truly remarkable thing to see. In a field where emotions run high, Robert's genuine concern for the well-being of his clients and their children allows him to stand apart from the crowd. He does not simply do his job and go home; his clients are a constant priority because he knows what he does changes people's lives, and those changes are not always realized between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Robert's attention to detail and precision is a quality few possess, but one that everyone should hope their divorce or family law attorney values. I referred Robert to a number of friends, and will continue to do so without hesitation. The matrimonial bar would be lucky to have more attorneys like him.
