Concetta G. Spirio has advocated for LGBTQ rights since she was an undergraduate in college. As an attorney, Ms. Spirio believes strongly in the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered individuals. Mainstream society has denied the LGBTQ community basic rights afforded to others.
Even with the advent of legalized marriage in some states, most of the rights afforded to straight couples are denied the LGBTQ community. It is therefore extremely important to have the proper experienced lawyer to advise you how to properly plan and design strategies and documents to provide for and protect your rights.
A Trusted Partner of the LGBTQ Community
There are special issues that come up for lesbian or gay couples who choose to get divorced, even though marriage is now legal for lesbian and gay couples across the country. Many issues arise that are unique to a lesbian and gay relationship, especially if the relationship is longstanding and predates the ability to legally marry. This is a big reason why lesbian and gay couples would benefit from Mediation or Collaborative Divorce rather than a traditional litigated divorce. This is simply due to the fact that the courts just don’t know how or care to deal with the different circumstances involving lesbian and gay couples.
Whether counseling individuals, couples or families, Ms. Spirio understands these issues and is well versed in strategies that will protect her clients’ rights. If you want to protect yourself, your partner or your family, and alleviate your concerns about “what could happen”, call 631-277-8844 today to learn about the benefits of having an experienced LGBTQ gay and lesbian divorce attorney on your side. This is a no-obligation initial consultation with personal service. Serving Long Island, Suffolk and Nassau County.
