Practice Summary
Practice Overview
Lisa Zeiderman, a managing partner at Miller Zeiderman & Wiederkehr LLP, is extremely well-qualified to handle complex financial and custody divorce matters. Named a 2019 10 Best Family Law Attorney for Client Satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, Ms. Zeiderman is also a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, a founding member of the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators, and a member of the panel for Attorneys for Children.

Always conscious of the costs of litigation, Ms. Zeiderman has negotiated and/or litigated custody and financial matters in the Family and Supreme Courts in New York and Kings Counties and in the New York state counties of Westchester, Rockland, Orange, Putnam, and Dutchess.

Ms. Zeiderman has been lead trial counsel in matters of custody, modification of custody, equitable distribution of assets, child support, alimony, contempt hearings, and relocation matters. She also has served as appellate counsel and successfully drafted and argued appeals including matters involving custody and relocation.

In addition to authoring a well-read blog on Psychology Today entitled “Legal Matters: Understanding Mental Health Issues as They Apply to Divorce and Child Custody,” Ms. Zeiderman has been published in The New York Law Journal, Divorce Magazine, ThriveGlobal.com and the New York State Bar Association Family Review, among many others. She has been quoted on issues ranging from financial empowerment, tax issues, and child custody in publications including USA Today, Marketwatch, CNNMoney, The Journal News, Business Insider, Bustle, and Fatherly. She has also been featured on numerous podcasts that focus on divorce and family law.

When necessary, Ms. Zeiderman’s approach to matrimonial and family law includes enlisting an interdisciplinary team, including mental health professionals, financial advisors, career counselors, and real estate advisors. This enables her to create a holistic approach for clients and their families going through a divorce that doesn’t begin and end with just negotiating a settlement agreement.

Ms. Zeiderman has in-depth experience with cases that involve mental health issues including narcissism and borderline personality disorder, and she regularly works with mental health professionals on these matters.

She also has experience handling high-profile and high-net-worth cases and has a reputation for showing the utmost discretion and respect for her clients’ privacy.

Ms. Zeiderman has lectured for the Family Law Section of the New York State Bar Association on topics including Equitable Distribution of Assets, Valuation of Liquid Assets and Investments, Maintenance, Custody, and Electronic Snooping and Discovery. She also has lectured for the New York Women’s Bar Association, the Association of Divorce Financial Planners, and the JCC in Manhattan on financial and custody-related matters.

She currently sits on the Advisory Board of the American Academy of Certified Financial Litigators, is a member of the Legislative Committee of the Family Law Section for the New York State Bar Association and sits on the executive board of the Justice Brandeis Law Society. She is also a member of the New York State Bar Association, the New York Women’s Bar Association, and the Westchester Bar Association.

Ms. Zeiderman also serves on the Executive Board of Savvy Ladies, Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides free education and resources to help women achieve their financial independence.

Ms. Zeiderman has a grown daughter and is remarried to the former president of what was the largest business management firm for high-profile show business clients, which had offices in Los Angeles and New York. Ms. Zeiderman formerly owned her own business in the fashion industry and utilizes the negotiation tools she used every day on the streets of Seventh Avenue in her legal practice.
