Barbara Strauss Family and Divorce Law

Attorney Barbara Strauss has maintained a private practice for over twenty-five years dedicated to advocating for men and women coping with divorce, family law disputes or criminal charges. She represents clients in Orange, Sullivan, and Ulster Counties. In her thirty plus years as a lawyer Barbara J. Strauss has gained a well-earned reputation as a smart, conscientious and vigorous litigator with trial skills gained as a criminal prosecutor along with an in-depth knowledge of the law that comes from extensive appellate practice. Barbara J. Strauss is a former president of the Orange County Bar Association, former president of the Women’s Bar Association of Orange and Sullivan Counties and has been a lawyer for children since 1990. She also is a well-respected lecturer on topics such as trial practice, complex equitable distribution issues and numerous family court topics. Ms. Strauss attended Wesleyan University, where she earned her B.A., before attending New York University School of Law, where she earned her J.D.

When my attempt at a collaborative divorce failed, Barbara Strauss was recommended to me as an alternative for a court-savvy yet not overly savage attorney. I wanted a firm hand, but more of a consultative situation. I wanted to maintain as much dignity and humanity in the trying proceedings as I possibly could. I found working with Ms. Strauss and her staff, especially her Paralegal Ms. Jennifer Lopez, both productive and pleasant. The team was personable and responsive and offered creative solutions in my complex situation. Ms. Strauss was interested in my circumstances not only professionally, but as a fellow human being. I found compassion and understanding, yet a firm opinion and solid professional advice. I am using the firm now, will use them again, and am happy to recommend their services to women and men in need. While Barbara Strauss's services did not come cheap, the firm did not charge me excessively and tried to save me money everywhere they could. Overall, I feel that my money was well invested as I was paying for future peace and comfort.

I went to Barbara for a high conflict custody battle. My previous attorney (who I had used for my divorce), had made me feel like I was alone in the entire process. Barbara was by my side the whole time. She communicated with me constantly and even called me on the weekends if she needed to. She always made sure to answer my questions and make sure I UNDERSTOOD the answers. She was delicate in delivering the hard truths that I needed to hear. My trial was 13 days long! She was a force to be reckoned with in the court room. I was in great hands with Barbara and I am happy with the judge's decision. Put your children first, call Barbara, and you will come out on top.
