Elliott Scheinberg, Esq
Reorganized, revised and expanded, the new third edition of 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 read" for the busy judge or family law practitioner.
“ Mr. Scheinberg's analysis is scholarly, his guidance is practical, and his personal commentary interesting. I enthusiastically recommend this reference work to all who practice, or intend to practice, in the area of matrimonial and family law.”
Hon. Justice Sondra Miller
Chair of the Miller Commission – the Matrimonial Commission
