My name is Paul Matthews. I am an ethical Manhattan Attorney. I handle affordable uncontested divorces as well as doing civil trials and appeals. At present, most of my contested cases are in the Family Court and involve issues of child custody, visitation, paternity, child support, and Family Court orders of protection. I have over 15 years of experience handling these types of cases, and have tried close to a thousand of these kinds of cases. I also try cases in the Small Claims Courts in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens Counties (only). I offer a free initial telephone consultation for uncontested divorces and Small Claims cases.
Thanks to NY state’s having finally passed a no-fault divorce law, getting an uncontested divorce is now easy and painless. If you decide to hire me to do your divorce, I promise that I myself, not a clerk, paralegal, or junior lawyer will personally prepare all of the necessary papers. When I prepare the papers I use the most up to date and effective software that automatically detects/prevents mistakes and delays.Once the papers have been filed with the court I calendar the case up and follow up on its progress. You almost never have to go to court on an uncontested divorce. All you have to do is get the papers to me and I do the rest. I treat every case as a “rush job” because I know that you want to get on with your life.
