My name is Joel Salinger. Thank you for visiting my website. For more than 14 years, my clients have placed their trust in me to defend their rights. I successfully represented the Matrimonial and Family Law cases of thousands of clients faced with a wide range of emotionally and financially challenging situations. In addition, I have defended an almost equal number of those faced with serious charges of Criminal, DWI/DUI and Traffic offences.
I believe that educating a client so that they can assist in the successful solution to their case is an essential part of the process. This website has been created as a resource to inform our clients and prospective clients about their rights and the legal process.
I practice both divorce and criminal law because more often than you may imagine, matters in one area are entwined with matters in the other. Are you are facing the break-up of your marriage? Divorce in New York is no laughing matter. Your life (and if you have children their lives) are on the line. The issues of uncontested divorce and No-fault divorce, same-sex divorce, legal separation, child custody and visitation, child support, maintenance and spousal support, post-judgement modification, relocation, grandparent rights, paternity, order (QDRO), pre-nuptial agreements, and Collaborative Law and divorce mediation are our specialty and if you want both an aggressive advocate to defend your rights, as well as a compassionate listener who will take the time to understand all the elements of your case (both personal and legal) then I am the lawyer you will want to hire to develop a litigation or negotiation strategy that ensures the best outcome for you.
Penalties for a conviction can vary, but can result in hefty fines, probation, prison time, suspended license and a criminal record. If you're found guilty, numerous "collateral consequences" can also directly affect your life. We handle a broad range of criminal matters, from assault to aggravated harassment, from drug offenses to DWI or drunk driving, from forgery or theft crimes to criminal menacing.
