About Jane Freidson
Jane Freidson is a divorce lawyer and divorce mediator with almost forty years of trial experience in New York City courts. Her private practice has been limited to family law issues since 1995.
As an attorney for one party, Jane represents her client through all aspects of a case. She negotiates and drafts pre-nuptial (prenups) agreements. She handles contested and uncontested divorce cases throughout New York City. She appears in Family Court for clients litigating custody, child support, orders of protection and more. Her clients are husbands, wives, unmarried partners, and often, children. She has handled scores of trials and hearings during her career and she is recognized as an expert in trial practice.
Jane trained as a divorce mediator after it became clear to her that contested divorce litigation does not generally end well for anyone other than the lawyers. As a divorce mediator, Jane works to help you and your partner make choices about how to resolve your family finances, care for your children, and restructure your lives after a separation. Jane’s extensive experience as a trial lawyer sets her apart from most of her peers in the mediation world and it allows her to help you and your partner to evaluate your options in a real-world framework, informed by evolving New York law.
Fees: Jane charges by the hour for her time. She has a flat fee for an uncontested divorce and for writing a mediated separation agreement. An advanced retainer payment is required for all litigation other than an uncontested divorce, and for most other work.
