With more than 85 years of combined legal experience, Lester & Associates’ team of skilled and principled attorneys works diligently and creatively on your behalf for your best outcome. Our Long Island roots serve us well with experience in local courts, while our practice extends throughout the Tri-State area and beyond.
Our areas of expertise include but are not limited to personal and business bankruptcy (Chapters 7, 11 & 13) and foreclosure defense, varied aspects of matrimonial, estate administration, property ownership, other advocacy, and appeals.
At our core, our main objective is to protect our clients, to be there as a steadying hand and expert voice of reason and advocacy during life’s many changes and challenges, aggressively championing our clients’ rights with the goal of placing them in a better position or situation than they were in before they met us.
By way of example, this may include obtaining a mortgage modification or having a foreclosure case dismissed, or by providing valued additional time in their home as they plan the next phase of their life. Or, this may take the form of either avoiding bankruptcy by defeating a creditor’s claim or by resolving overwhelming debt through bankruptcy with a strategy for a fresh start. Or, this may include providing for transferring assets upon death or tackling other estate litigation, resolving complex real estate disputes, or working creatively toward a path of resolution in matrimonial law, from pre- and post- nuptial agreements to divorce, child custody and related issues.
In addition to English, we are fluent in Spanish and Korean.
