Following the enormous growth and success of the firm’s Lake Success, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Rochester offices, Abrams Fensterman, LLP tapped former Appellate Division Justice Robert A. Spolzino in 2019 to lead the development of the White Plains office. In January 2021, former Appellate Division Justice Jeffrey A. Cohen joined the firm in the White Plains office, along with two additional attorneys from the Appellate Division, rapidly establishing Abrams Fensterman, LLP as one of the preeminent law firms in the region. After careful consideration, the partners decided it was time to expand their matrimonial and family law services from the firm’s Lake Success and Brooklyn offices and to bring in Jill F. Spielberg to lead this practice area in Westchester.
“It’s with great excitement that we share the news that Jill Spielberg is joining our firm as a partner,” said Former Justice Robert A. Spolzino of Abrams Fensterman, LLP. “Working with our established matrimonial and family law attorneys, Jill and her team will bring Abrams Fensterman’s White Plains office to new heights as we continue to expand our team and practice areas.”
“Jill Spielberg is a zealous advocate for her clients and her extensive experience will be a tremendous asset in expanding our firm’s matrimonial and family law practice as well as our White Plains office,” said Howard Fensterman, Managing Partner at Abrams Fensterman, LLP.
