Leslye M. Schlesinger, Esq.
Welcome to Leslye M. Schlesinger’s website. Ms. Schlesinger is a New City, New York based attorney concentrating her practice in the Collaborative and Mediation Divorce processes. She serves clients in New City, Nyack, Pomona, Suffern, and all parts of Rockland County, as well as Westchester County. The basic premise behind Collaborative Divorce is the shared belief that it is better for clients and their families to resolve their issues as respectfully as possible and without going to court. Indeed, the Collaborative Lawyer’s responsibility is to work together with the other spouse and their counsel to resolve the issues that have arisen and reach a negotiated settlement that meets both parties’ legitimate needs. This does not stop you from going to court in the unlikely event that the process breaks down and is not effective with your particular case. However, since only a small portion of matrimonial cases ever actually go to trial ---LESS THAN 10%---in all probability your matter will wind up in a negotiated settlement after many months of preparing for a trial which will rarely take place. Why not control the settlement process yourself instead of having the threat of trial driving you to make decisions, or by having a judge, who does not know you or your family, make such decisions?
