Collaborative Law

As an alternative to the inherent combative nature of divorce court, Collaborative Law encourages constructive dialogue between the separating parties and is a more amicable way to resolve divorce and marital partnership disputes. Collaborative law mediation tactics can be applied in typical marriages, domestic partnership breakups, custody agreements, property settlements. Especially when young children are involved, Collaborative Law is a less stressful fair-to-all-parties negotiation process.

Non-Traditional Families

Today there are more Non-Traditional Families than ever before. Non-Traditional Families include blended families, stepparents, single and divorced parents, grandparents raising grandchildren, and LGBT couples. Ms. Spirio is an attorney with experience in non-traditional family law, helping couples understand the law and how it impacts those in non-traditional families.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT)

Ms. Spirio has advocated for LGBT rights since she was an undergraduate in college. As an attorney, Ms. Spirio believes strongly in the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals. Main stream society has denied the LGBT community basic rights afforded to others. Even with the advent of legalized marriage in some states, most of the rights afforded to straight couples are denied the LGBT community.

Prenuptial and Domestic Partnership Agreements

No one wants to think about the possibility of a marriage break up or divorce when they are in love. The best way to protect yourself is to have an attorney draw up a legally binding document before the marriage occurs. Ms. Spirio is a lawyer with experience in negotiating and writing Prenuptial and Domestic Partnership Agreements. She knows how to tactfully broach the difficult questions, discuss them in a loving manner and develop an agreement that is fair to both parties.

Divorce and Separation Mediation

People typically like to have control over their own lives especially when their marriage or domestic partnerships are breaking up. As attorneys and mediators our approach to resolving these life situations allow our clients to create and customize a solution to their dissolution that is their own. Parties that are the architects and creators of the terms of their own divorce or dissolution usually create agreements that are more desirable to the parties and are more committed to and more willing to live up to their terms.

Real Estate Law

The purchase or sale of a home is often the largest financial transaction of a lifetime. It’s essential to have an experienced New York real estate lawyer to help you make the right decisions, and handle the myriad of possible problems that too often crop up. Although a real estate closing itself may seem simple, what takes place before and sometimes even during the closing can be complicated and stressful. It’s crucial to have an expert.

Trusts, Wills and Estates

What happens if you become ill or disabled? Do you know how to protect your loved ones and their assets upon your death? While these issues are often difficult to talk about with family, consulting an attorney for proper advance legal planning prevents future family problems. Concetta Spirio is an experienced and compassionate Trusts, Wills and Estates attorney often retained to prepare the proper documents, administer an estate after death, and to protect and guide your executor and your heirs through this often overwhelming and complex process.
