Chemtob Moss Forman & Talbert, LLP is a vibrant, aggressive boutique matrimonial and family law firm located in midtown Manhattan. The firm, which concentrates its practice in divorce litigation, custody litigation, prenuptial agreements, separation agreements, paternity issues, post-judgment litigation, visitation disputes and same-sex partner cohabitation agreements, has quickly become one of the largest matrimonial law firms in New York City.

The firm was founded in 2002 by a group of rising stars in matrimonial law who had previously been practicing at large corporate firms. Their experience in overseeing intricate financial issues has proven invaluable in cases that involve complicated marital estates. Over the years, the firm’s diligent attorneys have striven to reduce the stress of the legal process for clients by providing skilled and passionate advocacy. Together they have handled the splits of high-profile Hollywood players, hedge fund managers and business owners. They also provided representation for one of the first divorces of a same-sex couple in New York. Partner Nancy Chemtob says of the firm’s attorneys: “We are all in our professional prime—we are young and open enough to recognize creative new solutions, while having a great deal of energy and love for what we do.”

The firm’s attorneys successfully guide clients through what are often emotionally charged disputes by immediately identifying a client’s goals and mapping out a comprehensive strategy to achieve them. While the firm believes that thoroughly negotiated settlements are generally in a client’s best interest, they are known for providing aggressive and effective representation at all trial and appellate levels. “We love being trial lawyers,” says partner Paul Talbert. “Through practicing family law we can have a real, positive impact on people’s lives and families.”
