Our Practice

Our Practice

At the Kitson Law Firm we represent men and women in matrimonial and family law matters and assist clients in a wide variety of related and general matters.

We understand that being embroiled in a child custody dispute or divorce is stressful and emotionally difficult. We focus on getting clients through this challenging time as quickly and smoothly as possible, helping them determine and achieve their primary goals.

At our law firm, attorneys address all aspects of divorce. The Kitson Law Firm, LLP, is known for employing creative strategies while building strong cases that seek the best outcome for clients. One reason for our success is our use of specialists at all stages of the legal process. When needed, we employ financial evaluators, psychologists, securities experts, real estate brokers and other professionals who can document and substantiate our clients' positions. Although we use these experts on many cases, having this level of specialized assistance is especially important when assisting high-net worth clients with matrimonial issues.

Our attorneys are always prepared to go to court to fight for our clients' goals and rights. Our lead family law attorney, Patricia G. Kitson, is a litigator and an accomplished practitioner of collaborative law and a member of both the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the Westchester/Rockland Collaborative Law Group. This combination of skills allows her to develop the best strategy for each client.

In furtherance of obtaining property settlements for our clients, we have developed a keen understanding of the local real estate market. In response to the low housing-values that currently affect many homeowners, we have developed creative strategies for clients who are unable to sell their homes or who owe more against their homes than the home value. We are versed in issues involving pensions, 401(k)s, stock options and business valuation.
