Eric Jon Aretsky

About me

 


 


As a divorce attorney, Court Approved Family Law Mediator and family law lawyer, one of my goals is to reduce the collateral damage throughout the proceedings. Divorce creates massive trauma for both parties to the process as well as family members, businesses, associations, and friends. If there can ever be anything called a good divorce, it would be one where there is the least amount of acrimony regarding disposition of financial matters and shared parenting.

On the other hand, there are times when one party chooses to create chaos and is unwilling to be reasonable. In those cases we are prepared to meet fire with fire, and be as aggressive as necessary in securing the rights of our client.

We also have the ability to act as mediators. This is generally the least expensive approach, and commonly leads to the most satisfactory results for all concerned. I systematically offer clients the choices that will provide them with the best outcome.

There are many other areas of family law that we handle at Aretsky and Aretsky including child custody, parenting time and support; alimony; annulment, civil unions; spousal or child abuse; adoption: surrogacy; paternity; and domestic violence.

We are also experienced in providing outstanding legal representation for criminal defense law, DUI, personal injury, employment law, and traffic tickets.

Specialties:Divorce Mediation, Family Law, Divorce, child custody, parenting time and support, alimony, spousal or child abuse, domestic violence,DWI, personal injury law, employment law, traffic tickets
