Evan Wiederkehr has over twenty-two years of legal experience after beginning his career as in-house counsel to e-commence software companies. He negotiated multi-million-dollar software licenses to Fortune Five Hundred companies and oversaw all aspects of corporate business and governance before transitioning to representing individuals.
Evan brings the importance of strategic thinking and prioritization of goals to every client matter. He has successfully tried to completion matters before the local civil Courts, including small claims, landlord and tenant proceedings, real property disputes, family offense proceedings, custody and relocation applications, child support petitions and comprehensive divorce and economic trials.
Additionally, Evan has been trial counsel before the Federal Courts in the Eastern District of New York and Northern District of New York Bankruptcy Court. He has successfully brought and opposed numerous appeals before the First and Second Appellate Divisions of the Supreme Court of the State of New York involving both Family Court and Supreme Court matters. Notably, Evan successfully argued the appeal of a Federal District Court decision before the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in which the Court adopted his novel position limiting the authority of the United States Government to seize an innocent third party’s residence under the laws governing civil forfeiture of real property.
Evan brings the value of his wide litigation experience to each matter for the benefit of his clients. Most divorce and family law matters involve areas of law that require additional expertise to properly advise and represent client interests. Having litigated across multiple areas of law for decades, from real property interests and disputes, mortgage validity and priority, construction disputes, adversary proceedings in bankruptcy, partnership and corporate disputes and all areas of family law and divorce, clients are secure in the fact that all of their rights will be intelligently and effectively protected.
He brings his wide and varied knowledge to every client matter. Certain family law matters require an aggressive litigation posture to protect the client, children, economic security or property. Evan’s experience enables him to know the difference and avoid unnecessarily escalating an already difficult situation while never losing focus on achieving the best possible outcome for each individual client.
