With creativity and talent in spades, The Wallack Firm, P.C., which specializes in the family law matters of high net worth, high-profile individuals, has quickly become one of the fastest-growing matrimonial boutiques in New York City.
Assertive, energetic and fearless, Mr. Wallack is a rising star of the divorce bar, earning a reputation as “a lawyer who knows how to win.” He is first and foremost a problem solver—his skill and ingenuity allow him to come up with innovative solutions for the firm’s clients. Furthermore, his years spent as a prosecutor in the Manhattan D.A.’s Office and then in private family law practice have given him the trial experience needed to hit hard in the courtroom when a settlement cannot be achieved.
