Robert understands that every client’s situation is unique and requires its own carefully crafted strategy.  He believes “A pitcher who is only capable of throwing one type of pitch is not as effective as a pitcher who can throw a fastball, a changeup, and a curveball.  Each situation calls for a different strategy.  It is important for a lawyer to be able to be both tough and amicable, both aggressive and settlement minded, depending on whatever would be most beneficial to the client at the time.  Obviously, handling the negotiation of a prenuptial agreement requires a completely different posture, tone, and skillset than what is required in a nasty divorce litigation.”   

It is important to always be thinking multiple steps in advance to steer the client to the most advantageous outcome.

Robert is sensitive to the emotional and sensitive nature of Family Law matters and is able to prioritize the emotional well-being of his clients and their children while still obtaining the best possible result on their behalf.

He is a member of the New York State Bar Association and the American Bar Association. Mr. Lewis has taught legal writing, with an emphasis on Matrimonial and Family Law, at the Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law.


He resides in Nassau County and is the proud father of twins.  He is an avid soccer player and coach.  He also enjoys skiing, working out, and is an outdoor enthusiast.
