About Renata

I graduated from New York University and obtained my law degree from Cardozo Law School.  I have dedicated my practice to the field of family law, including divorce, custody, child support, orders of protection, and any other matrimonial and family law related matters.  I believe that my clients deserve an honest approach to their case, and should be kept informed of every aspect of their case so that they may make informed, intelligent decisions.  I will fight for my clients, but will also help them reach amicable resolutions where appropriate and necessary.  I believe in being available to my clients for advise, and pride myself on the personal, individualized attention I can devote to them.

Renata Weissman
I hired Renata for a child's support case. She was attentive, reliable, very informative, patient, understanding, punctual and overall great at what she does. She was my lawyer for almost 3 years and she won my case. She was prepared with case work and all information needed to win. I would highly recommend her.

Simply The Best!!!
Way more that I could ever dream or expect from an attorney!!! If you are looking for a professional who will make you succeed in the best viable way, an attorney who would present possible alternatives, suggesting selflessly what's of the clients' best interest: You are in the right place! I've been having some emotional issues and I was unsure of what do in many ways regarding my case. Renata has been extremely understanding, encouraging and supportive. Moreover, I was able to understand my legal situation because she explained so well. I can't begin to describe how amazing this attorney is. Don't hesitate for a second. in three words: Simply the Best!

Quick and thorough advice.
I requested a call and Ms Weissman called me back immediately. I didn't expect such an immediate response. She helped me to obtain information about a divorce matter. As I was having difficulty with my present lawyer, Ms Weissman was able to answer my questions as well as give me a resource so I could independently obtain the information I needed. She helped me to get peace of mind. I would definitely recommend Ms. Weissman.

Direct, Calm and Professional
Renata in my opinion, is a very capable and professional lawyer. She handled my case with sensitively and efficiency. I was in a vulnerable position dealing with an aggressive and difficult ex husband who was refusing to co operate with divorce proceedings. When I initially went to Renata I was nervous about the process and my rights as a foreign national living in NY on a three year visa, but she explained various options to me and my rights, she was reassuring and very clear. From the beginning she had a no nonsense sort of attitude, so I felt she was honest and wanted to get the job done in the easiest and best way for me. My Ex was hard work for Renata to deal with, he made it very difficult for her to track him down, not providing an address and also being manipulative and at times threatening towards me. Renata was persistent and calm and handled him very well while being sensitive to the fact it was a disturbing situation for me. I highly recommend her especially to female clients, she is strong, proactive and inspiring force.

Best lawyer Renata Weissman
I was so fortunate to have found an honest and dedicated lawyer like Renata. I'm hoping to never need a lawyer again but if I do Renata is the only one I would trust. Everyone I have ever recommended to her have thanked me a million times.

Superb & Knowledgeable Attorney
I had the pleasure of working with Mrs. Weissman about two years ago. I hired her to handle my divorce. She made a very difficult and emotional time in my life as smooth and easy as possible....always keeping me informed about my options and very very responsive at anytime. I was overwhelmed by her professinalism and amount of knowledge. Funny enough but I really did find this attorney a calming force and would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, caring and trustworthy attorney. Cant say enough good things and forever grateful. Excellent excellent!!!

Real professional attorney, very knowledgeable, extremely hardworking and caring of her clients
I have been a client of Ms. Weissman since 2011. I was previously told by several attorneys that I had no chance to win my case because I had no proof of existing contract. Ms. Weissman has done a tremendous amount of legal research, did a lot of work to pursue with my case. She is a real professional attorney, very knowledgeable, extremely hardworking and caring of her clients. I would recomend Ms. Weissman to every one who needs legal assistance.
