Pre-nup Consultation
I worked with Ksenia on my pre-nuptial agreement and I found her advice helpful and constructive. She was knowledgeable about current laws applicable to my situation and provided me with an honest and objective perspective. Thanks to her professionalism and experience, the process went very smoothly and I was able to create a pre-nup I was comfortable with and it gave me a peace of mind before making a big step in my life. I would highly recommend her services!

Great Choice
I retained Rudyuk Law Firm, P.C. in connection with a settlement agreement and uncontested divorce years ago. The process I went through with the Firm was very clear, efficient, and quick. The services I received at Rudyuk Law Firm were of the highest standards. With the advice and professional guidance of Rudyuk Law Firm, my former spouse and I agreed on all terms related to our divorce within only a few weeks. Ksenia G Rudyuk advised me on the DRL statutes and N.Y. case law pertaining to the issues arising from my marriage. I could negotiate a fair and reasonable settlement agreement based on her advice. Rudyuk Law Firm's staff then prepared my uncontested divorce packet within a few days of execution of the Settlement Agreement and submitted it to the Court on my behalf. For years after my divorce, I never had an issue with the Settlement Agreement the Firm negotiated and drafted for me. I highly recommend Rudyuk Law Firm to anyone seeking representation concerning divorce-related matters.

If you’re looking for a strong and knowledgeable custody attorney you can stop now.
After I was served with divorce papers 2 years ago I initially hired a different law firm to represent me in the divorce proceeding. I quickly learned that my STBX planned everything for nearly a year prior to filing. She set everything up that I had no way of getting joint custody. My (very expensive) lawyer at the time kept on telling me to just accept the other party terms and move on as there wasn’t much I could do at that point. Several months later, I started doing my research of reputable family attorneys who specialize in custody. I’ve contacted the law firm of Ksenia Rudyuk. During the initial consultation Ms. Rudyuk advised me that I have a very strong case of getting joint custody. She thoroughly explained the process. In a risky attempt to be in my children’s lives, other than every other weekend schedule my STBX was proposing, I decided to cut my losses and fire my previous attorney and retained Rudyuk law firm instead. I am happy to say that I finally have a 50/50 custody! I want everybody to know, do not be afraid to fight for your rights as a father. Court is looking out for the children’s best interest and could care less about the gender even when your STBX tries to manipulate every situation in order to intimidate you, Stay strong. If you have the right lawyer by your side who truly got your back, you have nothing to fear.

The single good choice I made on the road to divorce...
I switched representation for my divorce case to Ksenia after a disastrous start with another attorney. The difference was informative: the more expensive, more tenured attorney with a fancy office and a ton of online reviews turned out to be inefficient, and out of date. I was lucky to find Ksenia through a personal recommendation. She immediately noticed problems with how my case had been handled and identified risks which had not been highlighted to me before. My case was contested, and immensely stressful due to a long separation, a high disparity in assets, an unresolved immigration issue and a communication breakdown. That was before the pandemic struck and added an extra layer of complexity to everything. Ksenia struck the right balance of being cooperative with the opposing counsel while anticipating issues and defending my interests. She was always available to answer questions and address my concerns, but didn't let me waste legal fees on speculation or unnecessary work. Her approach was strongly informed by best practice and experience, but flexible when I was able to propose an approach or take on work myself (for example in the case of financial analysis, where I was able to make a considerable saving). My divorce could have been disastrous for me - financially, and emotionally, amid the backdrop of 2020. Thanks to Ksenia I made it to the other side in good mental and financial health, and cannot recommend her enough.

Very professional and hard working attorney.
Ms. Rudyuk represented me in a child support trial which lasted for over a year in Queens. She is an exceptional attorney with very sharp, analytical mind. She was able to discredit a private investigator and another witness on the spot in the court room. She did an enormous amount of work for me and obtained a great result. Ms. Rudyuk was very respected by the Judge. Very professional and hard working attorney.

Contested Divorce
Ksenia has just negotiated a great deal for me after I was in litigation for almost a year. Her approach to resolving disputes is that of a very professional, skillful negotiator. We had a four-way meeting where she was able to negotiate all aspects of my divorce within just a few hours. I am so happy I chose her to be my attorney.

such a professional attorney and psychologist
ihired Ksenia after a very bad experience with my previous attorney. I was going through a very complicated divorce, which was very emotionally difficult. My previos attorney never listened, never let me interrupt him and only semed to talk a lot on unrelated topics, than sent me huge bills. Ksenia listened to me. Not only she provided a great outcome in my divorce, she was also a great emotional support throughout the process. She is a great negotiator, and was able to reach the agreement which left me very happy.

Great professional services and advice
I worked with Ksenia on a prenuptual agreement, and I found her to be a consummate professional. She was very knowledgeable on the nuances and intricacies of what was required, and she was dedicated to giving me the best protection and representation. It felt good to have her on my side.

Highly Recommended
I needed a family attorney that would explain the entire divorce process clearly and tell me what the cost would be up front. Attorney Rudyuk was very patient with me and gave me a clear estimate of the legal costs. My divorce was completed in less than 4 months and I was charged 50% less than three other quotes I received. Needless to say I'm a happy client!

An Epitome of Efficiency and Professionalism
I was referred to Ms. Rudyuk by another attorney whom I had contacted about my rather entangled immigration case. He spoke highly of her professionalism and I am very thankful to him for providing me with Ms. Rudyuk's contact info. She explained to me every step of the process during our initial consultation and eventually she was able to get my case reinstated and approved by the immigration authorities. She was always available whenever I had questions or concerns and her rates are very reasonable, too. Now I am a permanent legal resident of the United States and I am very thankful to Ms. Rudyuk for helping me to get out of what once seemed a hopeless endeavor.

"After observing Attorney Rudyuk in a very heated contested hearing, I came away impressed with her calm rationale demeanor and her ability to argue persuasively with legal arguments while opposing counsel could only utilize anger and emotive appeals. The hearing ended with the Judge sanctioning the opposing counsel who was typically perceived as a court bully. I was pleased that logic and the law still prevail over non sensical tactics in family court. Ms. Rudyuk is clearly a very competent attorney and I endorse her."
