Contract Doctrine and Marital Agreements in New York is a unique and invaluable reference for members of both the bench and the bar. This two-volume work addresses virtually every potential issue that might arise in a matrimonial contract and contains a cohesive and comprehensive compilation of governing law and arguments as to both settled and unsettled issues of law.

The author facilitates an understanding of the complex principles and issues surrounding the application of contract doctrine to the matrimonial context and provides enlightening analysis of how courts have interpreted often-used contractual language. His expert insights and easy-to-read writing style, along with reference aids such as the detailed table of contents, table of authorities, and index, make this the perfect "must-have reference" for the bench and matrimonial bar.
