WE MAKE THE PROCESS OF DIVORCE EASIER FOR NEW YORK CITY COMMUTERS
For over 3 decades, we have represented many people who commute to Manhattan.
We recognize that commuting to New York takes an enormous amount of precious time, thereby making it really hard for the commuting divorce client to have a meaningful professional relationship with his divorce law firm.
Our commuter clients love our law office because we recognize that their available time is very limited, and so we try to accommodate their unique circumstances in four ways.
First, we use Zoom for easy first-rate video conferencing. This avoids the need for most (if not all) in-person meetings, thereby allowing the client to avoid further overcomplicating his already overcomplicated schedule.
Second, we have staff available to go into NYC to meet with clients in person at their offices, if necessary (it is rarely necessary because using Zoom video conferencing is very easy and effectively removes any communications barriers. It "feels like" we are sitting across the desk from each other during a Zoom video conference.)
Third, recognizing the time constraints that commuters face, we try to make ourselves available whenever necessary for after-hours phone calls and office appointments.
Fourth, we have staff available to meet our clients at ferry terminals, bus stops, and train stations in NJ to exchange documents, if necessary.
By doing everything possible to accommodate the "special needs" of our clients who work in New York, we have effectively made the lawyer-client experience almost exactly the same as if our offices were close by to the commuter client.
ANY WEEKDAY DURING THE WINTER OF 1986 AT 5:49 PM
That was the time that my train from Manhattan pulled into my home station back in 1986. I did it for 3 months and it was brutal. "Never Again!"
It's been 33 years, yet still every time I see that time flash on a clock, it brings back memories and reminds me of why my staff and I try so hard to make it easier for our commuter clients.
