About Howard J. Pobiner

2018 continues to bring updates and changes to the world of divorce, family law, children’s rights, business law, tax law, commercial law, and general civil litigation. With the advent of e-filing and many improvements to the system, it's easier to file a case in the Supreme Court, Matrimonial and Commercial parts, the Surrogate’s Court and the Appellate Divisions as well.

2018 continues to bring updates and changes to the world of divorce, family law, children’s rights, business law, tax law, commercial law, and general civil litigation. With the advent of e-filing and many improvements to the system, it's easier to file a case in the Supreme Court, Matrimonial and Commercial parts, the Surrogate’s Court and the Appellate Divisions as well. However, there are a lot more requirements and procedures than there were even a couple of years ago. Mandatory full disclosure of documents, conference scheduling requirements, and individual judge’s rules under the newest procedures keep cases moving forward with a substantial amount of document exchanges and electronic preservation of evidence for trial. The new Federal Tax Law creates additional issues for 2018.

I continue to be awarded an A-V rating on Martindale-Hubbell in 2018 by my peers and clients together with superior professional recognition as a 2018 client champion.

I am a 2018 member of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section Executive Committee, and the Committee on Children and the Law. I am a 2018 member of the Westchester County Bar Association, Family Law Section, the Putnam County Bar Association and the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators. I am also a member of the Financial Planning Association of the Greater Hudson Valley, the Hudson Valley Gateway Chamber of Commerce, the Justice Brandeis Law Society, and the Lincoln Society in Peekskill. I previously served on the Board of Managers of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

Throughout my career, I have given numerous presentations as a speaker for lawyers’ professional organizations and to community groups as a speaker on current legal and financial topics. My published articles and dozens of successful appeals are regularly cited by courts and distinguished lecturers throughout New York. I have successfully argued cases for my clients in the New York Court of Appeals and three of the four Appellate Divisions in divorce law, equitable distribution law, family law, commercial law, business law, and employment law. I am regularly called upon to try cases in the Matrimonial Part and the Commercial Division of the Supreme Court, the Family Court and the Surrogate’s Court.
