About me

Burton Hochberg focuses his practice on helping clients negotiate the evaluating and division of property by bringing a welcome objectivity and practicality to the proceedings.  Mr. Hochberg has over 40 years of experience and is regarded as “tough but fair” by his colleagues.  He has significant expertise in serving high net worth clients in the areas of child support, child custody, maintenance and property valuation.  


Mr. Hochberg is an experienced litigator, but makes every effort to keep a case out of court when possible.  He helps clients going through the divorce process by highlighting their concerns, and estimating settlement options from a cost-benefit stand point.
