    A child custody lawyer can help you negotiate custody, either by agreement or in court. The custodial parent (the one the child lives with) earns the legal right to make decisions regarding the child's lifestyle, welfare, and education.

MS.
I interviewed 6 lawyers before I decided to work with Marc. He was professional, kind and came across as a truthworthy individual who wanted the best for me at the difficult time of going through my divorce. Marc and Debbie made sure my daughter received everything she needed until the age of 21; things I never would have thought of. I have recommended Marc and Debbie to other friends and I would go back to them again if I need a lawyer who I knew had my best interest at heart.

Honest, compassionate, results oriented....
Getting a divorce is quite possibly the hardest thing I have endured in my life. It’s no doubt an emotional ordeal. I was not prepared to deal with the overwhelming amount of decisions and seemingly never ending details. I am truly grateful and fortunate having had you both guide me through this dark tunnel to reach the light. At every turn you educated me, gave me options, and kept things simple. Although divorce is not my ideal ending, you helped me come up with creative solutions to redefine my family. Marc, Debbie….Thank you, Thank you!”

Wonderful attorney
Marc Roberts is the most compassionate, reliable, knowledgeable attorney I have ever met. And his paralegal Debbie, who is at his side all the times, is tireless and wonderful too. It is very impressive to walk into court and have everyone else's attorneys come up to him and shake his hand. I have hired Marc twice and was successful in both cases.

Mr. Roberts is excellent! He is very knowledgeable and professional. He explained everything to me, and did not make me feel rushed, or feel embarrassed if I didn't understand something. His para, Debbie, works wonderfully with him. I was nervous about the matter I went to him about , but his caring way helped put me at ease. He was able to help me take care of what I had to. He is an excellent attorney!

Knowledgeable, trustworthy, detail orientated, and kind!
I cannot thank Marc Roberts enough for the amazing job he did getting me through my divorce! Mr. Roberts was extremely thorough and had an amazing knowledge of the law. The office is run very smoothly with his paralegal Debbie who is an amazing asset to Marc's team. All the paper work was carefully put together and done in a very timely manner, and I was very surprised at how quickly my divorce was finalized. Through out the entire process Marc explained every detail and was always happy to go over anything I might not have understood. Divorce is certainly not easy, but having Marc and Debbie guide me through the process just made it so much easier and bearable. I cannot thank them both enough for their help and support, and I would recommend them both to anyone that is going through a divorce. Thanks again to you both!

An Attorney You Can Count On
I first hired Marc Roberts as my divorce attorney back in 2003. He was professional, knowledgeable, and more than capable of handling the contentious situation that I found myself in with my ex husband. I very quickly realized that I could put my trust in Mr. Roberts and his crackerjack paralegal, Ms. Eisenstadt. Mr. Roberts was able to navigate safely through a very difficult divorce much to my satisfaction. Fast forward to 2016, when I again enlisted the services of Mr. Roberts as my attorney during a child support enforcement action. Once again, we were faced with the very same antagonist ex-husband from all those years ago. Mr. Roberts worked hard to bring this case to a positive conclusion. He was professional and firm with the opposing attorneys. He was extremely impressive in the courtroom. The case has been resolved, and I am very grateful for all of the many hours of hard work and time that both Mr. Roberts and Ms. Eisenstadt put into my case. I would highly the services of Marc Roberts to anyone seeking a divorce or any other aspect of family law.

Highly recommended
I would highly recommend attorney Marc Roberts. I needed a postnuptial agreement and my emotions were running high. He, along with his paralegal, Deb Eisenstadt, took me under his wing like my father would have, and walked me through the process. I felt safe and confident knowing he was representing me. He and Deb took the time to answer all of my questions, both in person and over the phone. I never felt rushed. I was welcomed into his office and made to feel very comfortable and secure. His fee was reasonable and I was surprised at how quick and efficiently he and Deb worked. I am very grateful to have found this amazing team; they put all my worries at ease.

Mr Roberts was my divorce lawyer.
I would highly recommend Marc W Roberts if you are going through a divorce. He is always available for questions and has certainly given me excellent advice. Unfortunately he had to deal with my ex-husband's attorney who was downright mean-spirited and extremely unprofessional. Marc went high when the other guy went low. I can say that my settlement was fair even though I did not receive everything I asked for. That is why you hire an attorney so he can tell you that what you are getting is fair. Mr Roberts made this horrible time in my life more bearable. I laughed and I cried and I learned about this new phase of my life through his kindness and that of his para-legal Debbie. You would do well to retain his services.

Amazing Experience!
Going through a divorce is hard. Marc made the process so easy and actually pleasant. Since day one I felt that Marc had the best interest for me and my children ( I wasn't just another client). His services exceeded my expectations: His communication, work ethic and he really listened to my needs and wants. It was a PLEASURE. And for a Nassau County case it was extremely fast.

Excellent legal team with a heart
Marc W. Roberts and Debbie, his paralegal, are an outstanding team. From the moment I met them, both have gone above and beyond to address the difficult issues of my divorce and custody. They are both knowledgeable, diligent and compassionate. I was so blessed to be referred to them to help me through the toughest time of my life. I have been to other law firms and no other attorney has shown as much responsiveness, empathy, and willingness to fight for their clients. This team is excellent. I highly recommend without hesitation.

A Caring Attorney
Marc Roberts served as my attorney through an emotionally messy divorce and a few child support issues. From the very first day he was attentive, consistent, and caring. He and his paralegal Debbie were meticulous in their preparation, timely in their responses, and always made sure I was kept up to date and informed about every aspect of my case. I received copies of everything immediately and my phone calls were always answered in the same day. Marc Roberts is an excellent lawyer who I recommend highly!
