Family Law Attorney Located In Lake Success

Offering Skillful Legal Counsel In New York Since 1975

Whether you are ending a marriage or facing a child custody or support dispute, skilled legal counsel may be vital to your well-being and that of your family.

I am Barton R. Resnicoff, and I have the experience it takes to successfully handle a variety of matrimonial and family law cases.

When I first started representing family law clients, I practiced with two very different partners, from whom I learned different things. From one partner, I learned how to practice tough and give no quarter. From the other, I learned how to use the law to assist my client — how to work with the parties and the other attorney to resolve the case fairly.

As a family law attorney, my goal is to resolve cases with my clients being treated fairly. I use all approaches to get to that result, from litigation or preparing for litigation; to negotiations; to mediation; to working with those involved to get reasonable outcomes.

A Reputation You Can Trust

I have limited my practice to matrimonial and family law for over 35 years, and over this time I have developed a strong reputation in the field.

  • I am a Board Certified Family Law Trial Specialist*. I was first certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy in 1996.
  • I was selected for inclusion in New York Super Lawyers in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2014.

  • I am active in various bar associations, including the American Bar Association, New York State Bar Association, Queens County Bar Association, Nassau County Bar Association and Suffolk County Bar Association.
  • I have published articles and lectured on topics of family law and matrimonial law.
  • I have handled a significant number of appeals and have well over 30 reported decisions from those appeals. I have tried, to conclusion, over 225 matters.

Personal Experience, Practical Legal Counsel

I am a divorced father with a grown daughter. I have been remarried for over 25 years and have two stepsons with families of their own.

Going through the divorce process on a personal level, and having two stepchildren and four grandsons, I feel, has been integral in teaching me how to understand the legal process from the client's viewpoint.

When I am not working on cases or spending time with my family, I remain active athletically. I was on my high school and college swim teams and played water polo in college. Since then, I have completed many marathons and shorter races. I was also on a couple of softball teams — as one of the oldest team members — making reasonable contributions to successes, including a couple of league championships. I also play paddle ball, and I continue to swim whenever possible.
