The Successful Divorce

Reinventing Family Law


Reinventing Family Law

Leading the way, Peskind Law Firm has reinvented family law.

Divorce today is complex, and legal expertise alone is insufficient for people to achieve a successful divorce. Lawyers are trained as courtroom advocates and negotiators, but we are not necessarily experts in financial planning or the emotional challenges of family break up.

All divorce cases involve three components that often intersect:

  • Legal Issues
  • Financial Issues
  • Emotional Issues

To be effective these days, law firms must address all of these issues to help people resolve their divorce successfully. We have reinvented the practice of family law to do just that.

He is one of only 100 lawyers admitted to the American College of Family Trial Lawyers, a prestigious organization that admits by invitation only, the top divorce trial lawyers in the nation. He is an accomplished and experienced lawyer, possessing the wisdom to help our clients navigate a sometimes treacherous process. Edward Milas, also a skilled trial lawyer and negotiator helps people resolve their problems both in court and at the conference table.  He is an empathetic problem solver. Mollie Peskind focuses her practice on helping clients with child custody, parenting disputes, and related matters.  She helps our clients address some of the most critical issues of their lives: the welfare of their children.

Melissa Rister, a Certified Public Accountant, assists our clients with tax and other financial aspects of their case.
