Best of L.I. 20121st Place Winner of
'Best Divorce Lawyer' on Long Island.
Divorce Has Heart
Every client is different, and every divorce has its own unique issues. Each requires an attorney with legal skill and the determination to do what's best for their client. What separates Randi Milgrim a partner in the law firm of Glen Cove-based Mejias, Milgrim and Alvarado and Dave Mejias, founder of the firm, from other law practices is their compassion.
Randi Milgrim has been named Best Divorce Attorney on Long Island by the readers of the Long Island Press in its Best of Long Island contest for the fourth consecutive year.
This prestigious designation, however, does not surprise her law partner, Dave Mejias.
“Most often, clients come into our office broken hearted and afraid of the painful steps they will need to take to divorce a spouse, provide for their children and in many cases be provided for themselves,” says Mejias. But once Randi begins to work with them, clients see the light at the end of the tunnel. “In Randi they will find a highly-skilled attorney with a heart as big as her accomplishments,” adds Mejias. “You won’t find another lawyer like her anywhere.”
“When clients come through my door they are emotionally fragile and trying to make sense of the difficult decision to seek a divorce,” says Randi. “It is my job to understand the emotions divorce brings and to fight hard for my clients’ rights.”
The legal universe surrounding divorce is complicated and constantly evolving. Milgrim has navigated these difficult waters for many years while always remaining compassionate about the pain of divorce.
“Randi’s ability to fight tirelessly for her clients and truly empathize with them is remarkable,” says Mejias. “It is an incredible honor to work with her every day and experience such a high level of professionalism and kindness in an attorney close up.”
“Randi’s results speak for themselves,” he adds. “Time and again she has delivered for her clients.”
Of course, divorce is most difficult when young children are involved. There is a lot to consider when looking at child custody in a divorce case.
This is when Randi truly separates herself from other divorce attorneys.
“I help my clients examine every option. Do they want joint, shared, custody, or will one parent be granted sole rights?” says Milgrim. “Of course the issue of child support is critical in every divorce case and I will not stop until I know the children are well served and provided for in any agreement.”
In addition, Milgrim fights hard when it comes time to negotiate spousal support.
“I believe in doing what’s right, and sometimes during a divorce one spouse will try to break the rules. I won’t let that happen,” says Milgrim. “If my client is owed spousal support, I will make sure it happens. Conversely, nobody is going to take advantage of my client if he or she is the one who is providing spousal support. Divorce is difficult enough, greed makes it toxic.”
Uncontested divorce is the preferable way to obtain a divorce. It is simple and less expensive than litigation. It offers you and your spouse the chance to end your marriage quietly and, most importantly, with dignity.
“The best part of an uncontested divorce is the high likelihood of an amicable arrangement between the two parties. It is a better place to work from, for both the attorney and the client,” adds Milgrim.
Despite the long hours and emotional challenges practicing family law, Randi loves her career and is honored to be named the Best Divorce Lawyer on Long Island for four consecutive years, by the readers of the Long Island Press.
