Manhattan New York Divorce Attorney

Simply put, our best guess is that 95% of divorce lawyers in Manhattan don't have all three of what Gordon Price Diefenbach has: Ivy league credentials, a Top 100 Law Firm background in litigation, and over 30 years as a trial lawyer. His firm is best known for its civil, matrimonial and child custody practice. Not many divorce attorneys can say they have a significant amount of experience in child custody battles. He can. Gordon is known by most, if not all, of the top matrimonial lawyers and judges who handle custody and divorce cases in New York. His reputation consistently attracts law clerks from the top law schools to work with him. And as for a lesson on how to negotiate a settlement: when negotiations fail, his experience is that clients can obtain fairer results when they litigate rather than cave in. Gordon has been recognized by both clients and colleagues alike as a leading trial lawyer and has earned that reputation through hard-fought battles against some of New York's top divorce lawyers.  He has built a reputation as a strong litigator, particularly in the area of child custody and divorce. His firm has been the go-to firm even by other lawyers. He has a proven track record of taking on some of the most complex and high-conflict child custody and divorce cases to hit the New York courts. Gordon began his legal career at Martin, Clearwater & Bell, a top-100 NYC litigation firm in 1986. He has made thousands of court appearances since then.
