Leading The Way In Divorce Matters On Long Island, Nassau & Suffolk County.


This is your family and your divorce
We offer three process options allowing divorcing couple to transform their family with
dignity and remain in control of their future parental and financial relationships.

Collaborative Divorce

Collaborative Divorce

A win-win scenario is always within reach.

Collaborative divorce is a private and autonomous team approach to conflict resolution.
From the outset, the collaborative approach aligns a separating couple’s interests in a positive and empowering process of restructuring from a nuclear to a bi-nuclear family through respectful communication and out of the box thinking, while simultaneously preserving the dignity and privacy of the relationship.

Divorce Meditation

Divorce Meditation

Private, expedient and mutually beneficial.

Designed to encourage constructive dialogue and open communication, divorce mediation provides spouses with a private, informal and comfortable environment to discuss and resolve sensitive issues. Your mediator serves as a neutral facilitator of communication and does not represent the interests of either spouse. In order to be successful, both spouses must be comfortable speaking for themselves and tackling the difficult issues.

Divorce Settlement

Negotiated Settlement

Not all roads lead to trial.

Negotiated settlement divorce looks at litigation as the last option when it comes to divorce resolution. A litigated divorce is one where the parties use the legal system to resolve their divorce. Approximately 95% of all divorce cases end in settlement before trial. However, in the context of litigation, the emotional and financial damage inflicted along the way to your settlement can be devastating.

We love hearing about our clients’ positive experiences.

Here’s what some of our most satisfied clients have to say about us.

I highly recommend Kim for mediation.

“I recently hired Kim for mediation. She spent a lot of time explaining the process and helping us come up with a separation agreement that worked for both myself and my ex. I would highly recommend using Kim if you decide mediation is for you!”

A simple and pleasurable experience.

“Uncoupling is emotional and difficult. Kim and her team made it as pleasurable and simple as possible. She guided us to the best resolution quickly. I really valued her experience and guidance during the process and highly recommend working with her.”

A great collaborative attorney who understands clients’ needs.

“I have worked with Kim on several Collaborative Divorce cases as a financial neutral. Kim’s handling of clients is compassionate and respectful. Kim is very effective at helping clients find their voice so that they are empowered to make decisions and take an active role in shaping their financial and parenting future. This process enables the “no longer intact family” to continue to have an on-going relationship so that each of them could continue to co-parent and be comfortable in each other’s presence during family milestones. Had this gone to litigation, the process would have continued for years and been destructive to the family. Kim’s understanding of the Collaborative process has helped her clients reach settlements that were tailored to meet their needs for future independence.”

An amazing advisor who offers a professional and pleasant experience.

“Kim has been an amazing advisor. Kim manages to make a very contentious and emotional circumstance actually a pleasant experience. She is very professional and shows real interest in her clients. Kim is very fair and offers very sound advice. I would highly recommend Kim Ciesinski to any couple seeking dissolution of their marriage.”

Embrace the alternative.
