clients with effective legal solutions
Divorce is a life changing event. The issue of custody of your children, as well as parent-child contact problems (sometimes referred to as parental alienation, or resist-refuse dynamics) introduce additional stress in the process. Accusations of child abuse can break families apart, and negatively affect the lives of children. Financial issues such as equitable distribution (division of the marital assets and liabilities), child support and spousal maintenance will shape your economic future.

It is crucial that you choose the right law firm to help you with your specific legal problems. You are entrusting your lawyer with your future, and the future of your family. You want to be represented by attorneys who are skilled in the law, pragmatic in their approach and responsive to your needs.

At Braunstein & Zuckerman in White Plains, we are dedicated to providing you with effective legal solutions consistent with your legal and emotional needs.

Building on a track record that dates back to the firm's establishment in 1985, our New York lawyers have earned a reputation

Lawrence Jay Braunstein is a partner in the law firm of Braunstein & Zuckerman, Esqs, in White Plains, New York. His practice includes the areas of Matrimonial and Family Law and related civil and criminal litigation. Since 1985 he has specifically focused his practice in the areas of child custody litigation, including parent-child contact problems and issues involving allegations of parental alienation and refuse/resist dynamics, and litigation involving allegations of child sexual abuse, physical abuse and abusive head trauma (shaken baby) in matrimonial, family and criminal cases. He is recognized by his peers as an expert in these areas and is often hired by other lawyers to assist them in their litigation because of his expertise in these areas.

He regularly lectures as an invited speaker, both nationally and internationally, in the areas of child sexual abuse, physical abuse and shaken baby, child custody litigation, expert witness testimony, courtroom psychology, trial procedures, and on various other criminal, family and matrimonial law topics to judges, attorneys, medical and mental health professionals, law enforcement personnel (State and Federal), prosecutors (State and Federal), and child protection service personnel.

Since 1999 he has served on the faculty of the New York City Police Department Sex Crimes and Child Abuse Investigation Course and, since 2014, on the faculty of the New York City Police Department Homicide Investigator Course. In 2004 he was the only defense attorney invited by the FBI to participate as a member of the working group to plan the International Online Child Sexual Victimization Symposium, and to present to both the working group and the Symposium.
