Cheryl E. Slater

Yonkers, New York

Cheryl has practiced almost exclusively family law for more than a decade.  In doing so, she has successfully guided clients through all aspects of family law including negotiating prenuptial agreements, custody and support proceedings, divorce, and the resolution of post-divorce matters.  Cheryl recognizes that family issues which lead clients to Family Court and/or Supreme Court are often life changing.  As such, her practice of law is zealous but always cognizant of the practical and emotional implications of settlement negotiations and litigation.  She is also equipped to handle related matters that often arise in the wake of family law proceedings.  Cheryl often handles real estate transactions, simple probate and administration proceedings, and drafts new or updated wills, powers of attorney, and health care proxies.  Cheryl regularly represents clients in both Supreme and Family Courts in Westchester and surrounding counties.  She is a member of the New York State Bar Association, Westchester County Bar Association (Family Law Section), and Yonkers Lawyers Association.  Outside of her legal work Cheryl is an avid equestrian and often competes in local hunter/jumper horse shows.
