I specialize in matrimonial litigation in a dedicated, one-on-one relationship with each client. I have been doing this for more than four decades. Your rights will be protected and your claims prosecuted in a competent, professional manner. There is no lawyer with greater trial experience practicing in Kings County Matrimonial field than I. I will endeavor to settle your case, but if I can't settle your case, my adversaries know they will be opposing a very experienced and competent trial attorney. That often brings about settlement before trial.

I cannot guarantee a result, but I do guarantee you will always receive my best effort. In a no-nonsense way, I will tell you what your rights are and how the law should benefit you and your children. I will discuss with you the possible outcome of your case on all issues and provide you with the options available to you in order for you to make the most informed decision possible, in order to assist me in helping you through this most difficult time in your life.


Call me for an appointment. I will always do my best to serve you.

Edward J.
Through the most difficult time in my life I found a friend and an allie to stand up for me. I have dealt with attorneys in the past, mainly through my business, and some family litagation. This lawyer was head and shoulders above any attorney I've seen in the courtroom. I can't say enough about how I was treated and protected.

Attorney Colleague Review
I am a practicing matrimonial and family attorney. I have had many cases against Walter Anderocci in Family and Supreme Court’s in the State of New York. Walter is a tough adversary who is well versed on the law and knows how to fight for his clients. He never quits and always fights hard to the end. He represents his clients all as if they are his family. His stamina throughout the case is unparalleled. He’s a tough litigator and has the finesse to settle any matter if the case warrants settlement.I would certainly tap Walter’s expertise if I found my self in a position that I needed legal help in his area of practice. You can’t go wrong with having Walter as your lawyer.

Not enough stars to rate for my lawyer
I couldn’t have picked a more dedicated and professional caring lawyer. I had a very difficult case I presented to Mr. Anderocci and Mr.Anderocci was always there and spoke to me any time whether he was working or already done for the day. He kept in touch with me about every thing that went on in my divorce case and was very on top of my biggest concern which is my child who is a minor. No words can express what a fine lawyer Mr. Anderocci is and a very fine gentleman as well. I very highly recommend Mr. Anderocci to anyone who is in need of a divorce and more so to any difficult cases like mine. He stops at nothing.

Happy Divorcee
Walter was very understanding to my situation and thorough. He was always available either through text, emails, or phone. He was only interested in my well being and for a just decision. The case worked out well and in my favor in many ways.

Who you need by your side!
Walter took care of my divorce. He was professional and knowledgeable and always thinking outside the box. He was tough at time which, to be honest , you sometimes need to hear ,but always, always had my best interest at heart. I highly recommend Walter! He is not the kind of lawyer who just charges you hours. He is the kind of lawyer who gets the job done efficiently !

Walter Anderocci is Brooklyn’s Best
Came to Walter in the worst of scenarios - my wife used my children as pawns and was destroying every aspect of my life... at the time i had an attorney who was helping to build my grave - while in tears i was telling someone my situation - they told me to go to Walter Anderocci who has exceeded every and all expectations!!!! He got me more time with my kids than i had dreamed of at the time and has taken my case personally! I truly feel as if we are family and it’s about me and my kids - Not the business! Let me be clear - he is TOUGH!!!! (With a heart)! My recommendation to you - if you NEED a lawyer who is going to give you the best LEGAL ADVICE AND REPRESENTATION and quality of life going forward - CALL WALTER

Thoughtful & Caring Litigator!
I hired Mr. Anderocci for a custody matter. He was extremely compassionate and willing to work to meet with me late nights and weekends to accommodate my schedule. He was always available by phone or e-mail. I was able to achieve joint custody - something I did not think was possible!
Posted by Richard | January 23, 2015
Thanks to Walter I got a lot of extra time with my daughter!
If it weren't for Walter Anderocci, I'd still be stuck only seeing my daughter on alternate weekends. Ever since he took on my case my parenting time has increased substantially. He is the hardest working, most passionate lawyer I've ever had the pleasure of dealing with. If you're in need of a lawyer who will treat your case like it's his only priority, then hire Walter Anderocci immediately.
