About Us


At Wand & Goody, LLP, we take pride in resolving cases using expertise developed based on years of litigation, as well as settling cases through negotiation. We believe that in the client’s best interests, matrimonial cases should be negotiated and settled for the benefit of all concerned, particularly the children. Barring settlement, we resort to litigation in order to protect our client’s rights and secure the client’s entitlement under New York’s divorce and family laws.

With over fifty-five years of collective legal experience, the attorneys of Wand & Goody, LLP, have handled all aspects of New York divorce and family law litigation, including settlement negotiations, motion practice, hearings, divorce trials and appellate practice. We use that experience, together with an approach emphasizing creativity and diligence, to devise the most effective case strategy to meet your needs.

We also offer, as an alternative to costly, contentious litigation, divorce mediation, where Mr. Wand acts as a neutral mediator to assist a couple in resolving their marital affairs.

“Competence, experience and persistence you can trust.” These words are not offered lightly. It is the basis of the firm’s philosophy in representing its clientele.
