"Fair, honest, and ethical." 5-Star Reviews of Our Schenectady-Area Lawyers
We are working them on an adoption case and we have been met with love, grace patience etc. The process has been smooth sailing fast and efficient. We feel like old friends really.
It's extremely processional but also casual where it needs to be.
We feel safe protected and fought for. It does not feel like we are just a number and they are out to get our money.
I was involved in a complicated divorce case. Prior to being with Gordon, Tepper & DeCoursey, the case had languished. Once Eric and the firm took over the case things moved along very well. The true nature of the case and what was required became apparent. Eric Tepper, Esq. and the entire staff worked extremely hard with short timeframes to prepare the necessary correspondence and filings. Eric communicated and worked well with the other attorney, accountants, and the court. The staff in all areas was very responsive and communicated clearly what was needed and when. I always felt they were aware of what was needed and helped to explain the different stages, why we were doing things as we were, and felt respected at all times. This combined was a tremendous benefit and relief. I do highly recommend them and would expect regardless of the case or the issues the firm and people would work in the same professional manner as it is their nature.View on Google

Family and Matrimonial Law Featured Practice Areas
When a marriage is heading for divorce, a number of disputes may arise regarding the grounds for divorce and the division of property. Our lawyers can help with both contentious and amicable splits, always seeking what's best for you.
Unlike a divorce, a separation does not end a marriage. Instead, separation means that spouses have stopped living together. Keep in mind that legal separation will still involve discussions of property and custody, which is why you need a lawyer to assist you through the process.
Child support ensures that both parents share in the financial responsibility of raising a child. Our family law office can establish paternity, negotiate modifications to support, and hold parents legally accountable for late payments.
Spousal Support and Maintenance
Also known as alimony, spousal support and maintenance is sought after a divorce or separation. Our family law firm can help determine how much alimony is owed and how long spousal support will be provided given the length of the marriage.
Child Custody and Visitation
Often the most heated aspect of a divorce, disputes over custody and visitation must focus on the best interests of your child. Our lawyers are available to advocate for you as a parent and provider.
Prenuptial agreements can protect spouses in the event of a divorce or separation. These legally binding documents can preemptively set terms for property division and spousal support. Our Glenville law firm can help you draft an airtight prenuptial agreement.
