I spent the first 16 years of my legal career as a labor and employment attorney -- then I got a divorce.  My experience was so debilitating that I now focus my practice on matrimonial and family law.  I am also a collaborative divorce attorney, and am a member of the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals ().  The collaborative method is far superior to traditional litigation ... call me and find out how!

Dolores Gebhardt is a complete package, the figurative ace up your sleeve.
I contacted Dolores after doing extensive research on divorce attorneys. Dolores had one of the highest recommendations and now I understand why. She is not only adept at handling various divorce matters with professional ease and unreproachable competence, but she allays her clients worries & problems with diligent attention and a genuine, personal concern that comes through at all times. Dolores takes the myriad of legal jargon and litgational processes and translates the cold, hard facts into clear explanations that even the biggest simpleton can understand. When you're ready and want only the best representation for your divorce, especially after you get done dealing with biased mediators and incompetent attorneys, give her a call. Better yet, call Dolores first. You won't regret it.
