 No matrimonial attorney or judge should be without Contract Doctrine and Marital Agreements in New York by Elliott Scheinberg, Esq. It is a constant reference source in my office. A marital agreement is the critical document that finalizes the rights of the parties, such as, property distribution, liabilities, pension distributions, custody, etc. Even a seemingly simple agreement can have a devastating effect if not drafted properly. Mr. Scheinberg has mastered the analysis of governing law and marital agreements in his two-volume treatise addressing every conceivable matrimonial-contract issue and how to challenge or defend agreements. While a comprehensive reference, it is written in a style that breaks down the principles of contract law into easy to read and understand segments, which are of great use for the busy practitioner. Mr. Scheinberg also provides a deep enlightening analysis of how courts have interpreted often-used contractual language. Contract Doctrine and Marital Agreements in New York is a long overdue, "must have", resource.
