My name is Todd Brownell, and I’m a family law attorney with the firm. I’ve been here for about 16 years, and I’ve been a partner for probably 15 of those years. I became an attorney because I was doing a lot of casework and advocacy work for various populations in the New York City area. I was doing more and more casework, helping people with small claims and landlord tenant matters, and it was a natural transition from that kind of advocacy work. Often I tell people that it’s important to hire an attorney for a divorce case because we do this all day every day. It’s what we do and it’s all I’ve done for the last 16 years. I think it’s important to have an attorney who has experience because you need somebody that understands the nature of these types of cases, and there really is no substitute for having experience.
