My name is Richard Beckerman, Esq. and I was born in Queens N.Y. Shortly thereafter, I moved to Nassau County where I was raised by a family of professionals that taught me the value of hard work and a sense of compassion to those under my care. I am an alumnus from the University of Delaware and received my Juris Doctorate from Hofstra University School of Law in 2008.
Upon my admission in 2008, I worked at a boutique high asset matrimonial law firm where I learned the ropes on how to effectively represent many wonderful people during some of the most difficult times in their lives. As my experience grew I brought my skills to a prominent divorce firm in Queens where I led the firm as the senior litigation associate. During this time, I had the privilege to hone my skills at both trial advocacy and the art of negotiation, developing a powerful and respected reputation among matrimonial judges and other attorneys. I handled every major trial at the firm for 5 years as well as personally represented only clients with the most difficult of cases. Such cases ranged from hotly contested custody battles to businesses and real estate valued in the millions.
Many of my clients came to me after their prior attorneys were not experienced enough to handle their case effectively. I take pride in the fact that my ability to negotiate results in most of my cases being resolved to my client’s satisfaction without the need to pay for costly trials. In the event the trial is necessary, however, I have the knowledge of the law and the experience at trial to make you feel safe knowing your interests will be protected.
In 2017 I was nominated and selected as a rising star SuperLawyer, which means I was ranked in the top 2.5% of family law attorneys in the state of New York under the age of 40. I was also ranked a top 10 family law attorney in New York by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys. At this point it became clear it was time to bring my services and skills directly to my clients where I could best meet their respective and unique needs. Here at Beckerman and Granados PLLC, you can feel safe in knowing that myself and everyone under my tutelage will provide you with exceptional representation. Our outstanding knowledge of the law and skills in the courtroom are specifically designed to protect your assets and interests in the quickest and least expensive manner. I am a proud member of the Queens County Bar Association and New York State Bar Association. As so many have before, contact us today to learn just how much we can help you.
