About David I. Grauer, Attorney At Law
There are many reasons you may need legal counsel, but the qualities of a good lawyer don’t vary. You want someone who is familiar with the particular area of the law.
You want to feel that your lawyer cares about you and your legal problem. You want to know that your lawyer will value your input and strive to meet your goals rather than pursue his or her own agenda.
When you hire David I. Grauer, you get a thoughtful, compassionate and hard-working lawyer who thrives on problem solving. I am a solo attorney with 35 years of broad-based experience in civil litigation and appeals. I am known in the community and in legal circles as a shrewd litigator, an ethical attorney, a practical man and a passionate advocate for my clients. I have also been called a “lawyer’s lawyer,” frequently retained by other law firms and attorneys for assistance with complex litigation and for their personal legal matters.
My clientele includes individuals, property owners and small businesses, as well as real estate developers, corporations and major title companies. Based in White Plains, I serve clients from Westchester County and the Lower Hudson Valley to every borough of New York City.
Your Goals Are My Goals
For 35 years, my practice has been formulated and predicated on client referrals:
- I promptly return calls.
- I listen to my clients and help them clarify their goals and priorities.
- I give honest, direct and focused advice and counsel.
- I keep the lines of communication open.
- I solve problems, working from clients’ goals.
- I fight for my clients.
- I do not nickel-and-dime my clients and would never allow litigation to drag out to generate fees.
Litigation does not always mean settling disputes before a judge or a jury. I use whatever means will achieve the desired result in the least time with the least expense, with the greatest degree of control over the outcome. If persuasion, negotiation, mediation or arbitration does not work, I am a veteran trial lawyer prepared to advance your interests in contested proceedings.
Solutions For Your Divorce Or Child Custody Dispute
A substantial focus of my practice is matrimonial and custody litigation. I have handled high-asset divorces, bitter custody fights and tangled disputes over visitation, child support and related issues. I strive for out-of-court remedies, but I have handled trials and appeals at every level, including landmark cases and successful precedent-setting appeals relating to grandparent visitation, support and property settlements.
Sophisticated Skill In Real Estate And Business Law
I handle all facets of real estate disputes, from breach of transaction and construction litigation to zoning appeals and property disputes. I also represent business owners, partners, shareholders and executives in the full spectrum of business litigation, from contract disputes and collections to disputes with associates, employees and competitors. My experience and my approach consistently produce expeditious and cost-effective solutions, no matter how complex or high stakes the conflict.
I also handle estate and trust litigation, including will contests and accounting litigation, and other types of civil and commercial litigation.
