Long Island Divorce Attorney

Susan Dandola Profile

Since 1994 Susan Dandola has assisted couples and families with divorce and family law matters. Working for nearly two decades as a Long Island divorce lawyer, she established a divorce mediation practice that reflects her compassion and sensitivity for clients’ concerns. Depending on the client’s needs, she employs constructive litigation alternatives to settle disputed issues. And in high-conflict cases where resolution is not possible or appropriate to protect the clients’ rights, her extensive trial experience allows her to aggressively litigate on their behalf.

New York’s 2010 divorce legislation ushered in an era of no-fault divorce, shifting  the focus of New York divorce from adversarial battles to alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes and out-of-court settlements. Keeping pace with changing times, Ms. Dandola offers clients a variety of ADR processes, including mediation and collaborative law.

Her experience, skills, and practice focus make her ideal for mediated and collaborative divorces. As a Long Island divorce lawyer, she serves clients throughout Suffolk County, including the cities of Ronkonkoma, Riverhead, Bay Shore, Islip, Holtsville, Stony Brook and Babylon.

While her primarily concentrating on divorce and family law, Ms. Dandola establishes long term relationships with many of her clients and also assists them with real estate, estate planning and criminal defense matters.
