Our approach is three-fold: Conciliatory, Investigative, and Adversarial. We approach every case initially with hopes of reaching an amicable agreement with the other party. We search for cost-effective methods to settle your case, whether through mediation, arbitration or old-fashioned negotiation. If a conciliatory approach does not work, then we apply investigative tactics and forensic procedures to unearth the hidden assets, find the important witnesses, and develop the evidence that will win your case.
We’re Not Afraid to Fight.
If we have not succeeded in settling your case after making a good faith attempt to do so, we will fight for you. The court system is an adversarial war ground, and we are trained and seasoned warriors. Unlike television, however, we know that most cases are won before you get to the courtroom – through solid preparation, diligent commitment, and strategic development of your case. Our litigation strategy involves careful research, investigative information-gathering, and tactical maneuvering through pre-trial discovery and targeted motions. In addition to being a family lawyer, Mark S. Guralnick is a licensed private detective who previously worked as an investigative news reporter. He has spent a lifetime honing his investigative skills to gather the information needed to bolster your case. By the time we arrive at the courthouse, we have often already won your case.
Diversity of Experience.
One of the main reasons family lawyers fail is because they have a narrow-minded view of what a family court can and should do. The Law Offices of Mark S. Guralnick has the opposite view. We leverage the knowledge of many other fields of law, business, psychology and other specialties to activate all the rights which our clients are entitled to claim.
Mark S. Guralnick is not just a certified family lawyer, he is also a certified civil trial lawyer and a board-certified international law specialist. He holds eight college degrees, including a doctorate (Ph.D.) and two MBA degrees. He has authored nine law books. For more than 30 years, Mark S. Guralnick has litigated divorce, annulment, child custody, alimony and support, domestic violence and international family law cases of every variety. He is licensed to practice law in nine states and four countries.
What do these credentials mean? They mean that our firm is able to invoke the knowledge, the special skills, and the tricks-of-the-trade that come with a broad diversity of experience. We deliver the insights of not just local lawyers, but also out-of-state lawyers — because Mark S. Guralnick is licensed in so many states. Likewise, we manage your case with the superior tactics used in other areas of law – because Mr. Guralnick is experienced in those areas too.

No Case Too Complex. No Situation Too Difficult.
We take pride in tackling the tough cases. We often settle the cases that nobody else is willing to handle, or we fight them in court to achieve a favorable outcome for our clients. Family law cases require individualized and personal attention. It’s not enough to simply be familiar with the legal process; a lawyer needs to know how to navigate the process shrewdly and strategically.
We are not afraid to be uncompromising and determined when it serves our client’s interests. But we are also not afraid to be fair, balanced, reasonable and diplomatic when it will serve our client’s interests too. The test of a strategic lawyer is knowing when – and how – to apply these different approaches to obtain the most favorable result.
No case is too complex, and no situation is too difficult for us. We specialize in unique fact situations with complicated details. We revel in dissecting the difficult cases and re-building them to a victorious ending for our clients. We particularly welcome the opportunity to fix “broken” cases that have been wallowing aimlessly in the court system.
Our Commitment to You
We strive to help our clients reduce stress, protect their children, claim all of their rights, and save money. We will always provide options and alternatives: Ways to stay out of court, and ways to build a case for court. We will fight for equitable solutions while trying to diffuse the animosity and acrimony of the process. We want our clients to feel emotionally empowered, not psychologically paralyzed by their family law proceedings.
Our objective is to eliminate your anxiety, to every extent possible. To reach this goal, we search for methods to expedite the entire legal process. You don’t need to spend any more time in the legal system than absolutely necessary! When you engage the services of the Law Offices of Mark S. Guralnick, we will combine insightful and purposeful thinking with proven judgment to give you a personalized level of guidance and peace of mind. That’s what our clients demand, and that’s the foundation on which our law firm has thrived for more than 30 years.
