Wendy Hickey Law

Excellence in the Practice of Matrimonial Law ™

Wendy Hickey is dedicated to providing professional and zealous representation for her clients. To achieve that goal, the office purposefully limits its caseload to provide the dedicated personal focus on all aspects of each case as our clients would expect.

Our approach allows for an in depth concentration on the facts of each case which allows for development of legal strategies to deliver the best outcomes for our clients whether in mediation, negotiation, or litigation leading up to trial. Typically our clients have high complex, high net worth and often international issues in their cases, including:


● Alimony;
● Identifying and valuing of assets;
● Division of assets and liabilities;
● Legal custody of and parenting time with children;
● Hague “kidnapping” and “wrongful retention”;
● Deciding where and when to file for divorce;
● Modification of court orders; and
● Contempt of Court and other enforcement proceedings.
