Jeffrey T. Strauss has devoted his career to helping his clients realize their goals through well thought-out negotiations, contract drafting, and, when needed, through courthouse remedies. Jeffrey is keenly sensitive to the many complexities associated with significant life transactions. Jeffrey regularly litigates on family law and matrimonial matters, and has worked extensively on the negotiation, preparation, and enforcement of separation agreements, pre-nuptial agreements, and post-nuptial agreements. He is highly sought after to advance his clients' interests in commercial, real estate, and corporate matters, and he regularly appears in all state, federal and administrative courts in New York, as well as private arbitration forums, such as AAA and JAMS.

Jeffrey was able to sustain the substantial victory that he had achieved for his client after the trial of a matrimonial action by having the opposing spouse's subsequently filed Chapter 11 bankruptcy case dismissed as a bad faith filing. In re Purpura 170 B.R. 202 (EDNY 1994).

In a case that irked legal commentators, the Appellate Division affirmed a decision after trial in a proceeding in which Jeffrey successfully advocated and staved off dissolution of a client's limited liability company through the implementation of an equitable buy-out remedy fashioned by the trial court. Tal v. Superior Vending, LLC, 71 AD3d 1153 (2nd Dept. 2010) affirming 20 Misc3d 1103(A) (Westchester Co. 2008).

Whether prosecuting or defending on behalf of his clients, Jeffrey is a trusted advisor upon whom his clients rely.
Jeffrey's career has always been about his passion for the law. He has served as Assistant Village Prosecutor for the Village of Roslyn Harbor, New York. He was elected as a Village Trustee for Roslyn Harbor in three consecutive elections.
