Rower LLC is devoted to helping people through complicated, and often difficult, family law matters. Whether working with a couple to join their lives through a prenuptial agreement or dissolve their union through a divorce, we approach each client with compassion and individual attention.
At Rower LLC, we have not forgotten that the practice of law is, at its core, a service industry. We believe it is not enough to provide our clients with excellent work, but also the highest quality service from the beginning of the matter to its conclusion.
Our commitment to service is reflected in the many referrals we receive from satisfied former clients.
WHAT SETS US APART
We pride ourselves on finding creative solutions to difficult issues, and on settling most divorces by agreement. When a favorable settlement cannot be reached, we are tenacious, thoroughly prepared advocates with 50+ years of cumulative litigation experience in the Supreme and Family Courts of New York.
Sensitivity and Warmth
Because divorce is an emotionally trying process, we strive to be an empathetic voice of reason and understanding during a difficult time, while remaining passionately committed to attaining the best results for our clients. Every member of the Rower LLC team is highly attuned to what our clients are going through and we try to lighten their burden by becoming their strongest allies and advocates.
We pride ourselves on being available and highly responsive to our clients' needs. We keep clients well informed at every stage of the process and are there to answer questions both large and small. We use plain language—not legalese—to explain what is happening and what we reasonably expect will happen next. By remaining selective in the cases we take, we focus on quality—of every communication, every interaction, every meeting—over quantity.
We believe the keys to a good outcome are diligence and thorough preparation. We involve our clients in every important decision impacting their case, explain the alternatives and together create a plan to assist the client to achieve the most favorable outcome for him or her. What often separates a good lawyer from a great lawyer is that extra effort. We always strive to go the additional mile, whether preparing for a settlement meeting or advocating our client’s position in the Supreme, Family or Appellate courts.
Although the legal field is notoriously behind the times on technology, we try to be as tech-forward and efficient as possible. By automating and streamlining many of our procedures, we save our clients time and money. In saying goodbye to the traditional yellow legal pad, we bring a small slice of Silicon Valley to Park Avenue South.
Commitment to Public Service
As detailed in our biographies, each attorney at Rower LLC is committed to public service. We believe our obligation, both to our profession and as officers of the Court, is to serve our legal community by helping those in need. We have firm-wide twice annual service days, most recently delivering meals for God's Love We Deliver and adopting a family for the holidays through Sanctuary for Families. We are proud to be a "Sustaining Law Firm" of the Legal Aid Society and Lawyers For Children and have made a commitment to help those organizations fulfill their missions to ensure that poverty is not a barrier to accessing the justice system.
