Lauren J. Sakofsky, Esq.
Senior Associate Attorney
Lauren Sakofsky has extensive experience practicing in all areas of family and matrimonial law, including child custody and support, spousal support, and equitable distribution, as well as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. Lauren brings her strong attention to detail and analytical skills to each case, while providing empathy and support to clients during what can be one of the most difficult and emotional times in their lives. While the goal is to resolve matters expeditiously and collaboratively, Lauren has experience with all aspects of litigation, including trials and appeals, when settlement is not possible.
Lauren received her J.D. from Fordham University School of Law and her B.S. in Human Development from Cornell University. While in law school, Lauren participated in Fordham’s Family Advocacy Clinic, and served on the executive board of the Domestic Violence Action Center, where she partnered with Sanctuary for Families on the Courtroom Advocates Project and volunteered with WomensLaw.org. After law school, Lauren worked at NYLAG in the Special Education Unit, where she advocated on behalf of students with special needs, before entering the practice of family and matrimonial law in 2016.
Lauren was drawn to family law by her interest in psychology and family relationships, and her desire to work with clients on a personal level. She previously practiced at two boutique matrimonial firms in Manhattan where she gained experience counseling high net worth clients.
Lauren is a member of the New York State Bar Association, Family Law Section and Young Lawyers Section, and the New York City Bar Association, where she serves on the Career Advancement & Management Committee. Originally from Long Island, Lauren lives on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.
