They have each been awarded the highest AV pre-eminent Martindale Hubbell rating for more than a decade, and have achieved numerous and repeated Best Lawyer and Super Lawyer designations. Their clients have included elected officials, judges and celebrities in the arts, sports and finances, as well as CEOs, investors, lawyers, doctors and other professionals, and their spouses. They successfully work to protect the privacy of each client, as well as the privacy of clients’ children and other family members.
Founding members of Cohen Hennessey & Bienstock in 1994, Ms. Hennessey and Mr. Bienstock were both instrumental in building that firm into prominence as one of the most sought-after matrimonial firms in New York and Westchester. Hennessey & Bienstock continues that high level of personal service.
