Who We Are

The premier divorce and family law firm

Garr Silpe, P.C. is recognized as one of the best law firms in the country by U.S. News and World Report (since 2010). 

We have lawyers listed in various editions of “Super Lawyers” and “Best Lawyers in America” since 2006.  We have extensive trial, settlement, and mediation experience in a wide range of matrimonial and family law matters.  Our firm represents many, but not exclusively, high net worth individuals in highly contested, litigated and non-litigated matters. 

What We Do

We protect your assets and financial future to the fullest extent possible either by thoughtfully negotiating a settlement or aggressively litigating your matter to a successful conclusion.  If custody is an issue, your child’s wellbeing is always our paramount consideration.  We have extensive experience resolving complex custody issues both inside and outside of the courtroom.

What Sets Us Apart

There are very few seasoned matrimonial trial lawyers in New York.  Our reputation as experienced and aggressive trial lawyers is well recognized by both our colleagues and the judiciary.

Our attention to a client’s individual needs also distinguishes us from other law firms.  As a boutique law firm, we handle a select number of cases.  This affords us the ability to devote proper attention to each client’s matter.  We are committed to addressing our clients’ concerns swiftly and carefully.  We endeavor to resolve problems before they arise, rather than allowing them to spiral out of control.  While we are more than capable of vigorously advocating for you in court, we take steps to prevent an issue from turning into a problem, a problem from turning into a fight, and a fight from turning into a protracted and expensive litigation.  We know this can be a difficult process.  Our job is to help you avoid unnecessary stress and acrimony.

Every client who retains us is in a unique situation.  We approach each case from the client’s perspective.  Together we formulate a case strategy specific to the facts of your case and with your objectives in mind.  Because these moments in life can be unpredictable, we respond quickly to crisis and are skilled at fluid case management.
