Berkman Bottger Newman & Rod, LLP
- Jacqueline Newman, Managing Partner
- Location: New York, NY
One of a kind: Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP is a boutique New York divorce law firm, concentrated exclusively in the area of family and divorce law. It is the only Manhattan firm that specializes in litigation, mediation and collaborative law.
Well-rounded: The firm offers specialists in all three processes of divorce (litigation, mediation and collaborative law). The firm is not a one-size-fits-all type of law firm, which is rare for a divorce law firm in New York City.
Breakup breakdown: Jacqueline Newman and her team were working with two people that could barely sit in a room together, and no one thought collaborative law was the best route for them. But by bringing in coaches and using a team approach, they settled the case at the end of the day. In the end, the clients believed they could get to a point of understanding and respect for one another, which didn't seem attainable at all in the beginning of the process.
