Robert Grossman focuses his practice in the area of matrimonial and family law, and also practices in the areas of real estate, commercial litigation and appeals. Understanding that clients often prefer to resolve their disputes out of court, Mr. Grossman is an adept negotiator who seeks to work collaboratively with opposing counsel to devise creative solutions to complex issues. But, when settlement cannot be achieved and trial becomes necessary, he aggressively pursues his client's goals without losing sight of the repercussions. From the outset Mr. Grossman works with his clients to determine their goals and develop a detailed plan for each, often including the "thereafter." In his view, the absence of a properly developed plan could be compared to taking a trip by car to a new destination without directions or a map – you may eventually arrive at your destination, but not without unnecessary complications and delays.

Mr. Grossman's work in the field of matrimonial and family law began over a decade ago, when clients who benefitted from his representation in commercial matters sought his representation in matrimonial disputes. He is experienced in matters involving pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements, separation agreements, child custody and visitation, child support and spousal support (maintenance) issues, equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, valuations of assets including enhanced earnings, licenses, practices and businesses, as well as post-judgment enforcement and modification proceedings. Mr. Grossman is also experienced in appellate practice. His business and commercial experience allows him to see issues from a practical perspective and gives him an in-depth understanding of certain complex issues that often arise in matrimonial disputes.  Mr Grossman has also been called upon to act as a "special prosecutor" for certain local municipalities from time to time.

HIGHLY Recommended
Describing Robert Scott Grossman of Winter & Grossman, PLLC as professional, flawless and diligent is an understatement. His work representing us was impeccable and genuine. We highly recommend him if you're looking for distinguished representation.

Doesn't back down
Robert Grossman and his team were excellent in helping me with my case. They constantly kept me informed and were aggressive in making sure my needs were met and that I received a settlement that I was satisfied with. I highly recommend them.

Great business and matrimonial lawyer
Mr. Grossman has been my business lawyer for over 15 years and also my matrimonial lawyer. He handled my divorce and also constructed a pre-nuptials agreement. He is honest, intelligent and a very effective communicator and negotiator. He is king, caring and very empathetic. If you want a hard working lawyer that answers all your calls and questions and works endlessly to help you. He’s the man!

In Your Corner
Robert Grossman is the attorney you want for all divorce-related legal issues, especially at the start of the process when relations between both sides can be very combative. Divorce often begins and continues to be a battle and Robert will come out swinging with you as your strong and solid general, giving you the strategy and confidence to win. He helped draft a separation agreement for me that was extremely fair and equitable and has already stood the test of time despite the considerable resources of the other side. His knowledge of the law is excellent and he knows almost instinctively which details to press to find weaknesses in your opponent. For instance, though at times he was brusque but correct in not tolerating some of my digressions, at our first meeting at the oppositions lawyers offices, (not our home turf and we were outnumbered), he singlehandedly caught the other side by surprise, got us what we wanted, and left on good terms with everyone. Robert Grossman is not for the fainthearted. He does not hesitate to tell you everything as it is-often straight and raw. But his overall approach will keep you safe, strong, and get you what you need and want. He will fight tenaciously for you. Who do you want in your corner?-Robert Grossman.

Real Representation for you when you need it....
I have worked with Mr. Grossman on several occasions over the years. All matters were handled in a proffessional and trustfull manner. He kept me informed and always made sure I was clear on what was happenning. Most importantly, I was never overbilled and fee's were always reasonable and a value considering the claiber of work provided.
