About me

Steven Wiseman has limited his area of practice primarily to Matrimonial & Family Law for 25 years. Mr. Wiseman has served as Chairperson of the Matrimonial and Family Law Committee of the Bar Association of Erie County.  He is frequently invited by the New York State Bar Association and Erie Institute of Law to lecture on marital and family law topics at continuing legal education seminars and programs across New York. Mr. Wiseman has had the honor of addressing Supreme and Family Court judges and has significant appellate practice experience, not only in matrimonial and family law matters, but in other legal areas as well.  He was the author of a brief submitted to the Court of Appeals, New York State's highest court, in People v. Kendzia, involving the right of a criminal defendant to a speedy trial, which has since been regularly cited by courts throughout the state, leading to what is commonly known in state criminal procedure as the "Kendzia letter."


Mr. Wiseman has earned the distinguished peer rating for ethical standards, and for professional ability based upon legal knowledge and experience in his specific area of practice, analytical abilities, judgment, and communication abilities, by the nation's leading directory of attorneys, Martindale-Hubbell. 


Mr. Wiseman has been active in community organizations, having served as an officer and director of Temples Beth Israel and Shaarey Zedek, as well as a director of Deaf Adult Services of Western New York, Inc.
