to his legal writing strengths, Mr. Levine has tried cases in Supreme
Court and Family Court throughout Nassau and Suffolk Counties, New York
City and Westchester County, on such matters as divorce, custody, spousal
support, property distribution, child support, orders of protection, contempt,
enforcement and modification of court orders.
Mr. Levine served as a mediator for matrimonial proceedings in the Early
