Andrea Katherine Scampoli is a partner in the firm, and she focuses almost exclusively on matrimonial and family law.
Andrea has significant experience in all areas of matrimonial and family law including uncontested and contested divorces, custody, parenting time, and relocation matters, applications for support, orders of protection, child abuse and neglect petitions, and post-judgment motions. Andrea is experienced in handling all phases of highly contested divorces including the equitable distribution of assets and liabilities, contested custody disputes, issues of support and maintenance, pendente lite applications, contempt hearings, and allegations of intimate partner violence.
Andrea began trial work shortly after her admission to practice law in the State of New York in 2010, and she is an accomplished litigator. However, Andrea is also an effective and creative negotiator capable of settling intricate and acrimonious matters without the need for protracted litigation when possible.
Andrea is a member of the Matrimonial Bar Association of Suffolk County and the Nassau County Bar Association. Through the Nassau Bar Association, Andrea participates in the Grievance Committee, the Matrimonial Law Committee, and the Inns of Court, and she has lectured to members of the bar in connection with noteworthy cases and changes in the law.
A writer at heart, Andrea graduated early from the reputable Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University before returning to her native Long Island and attending law school at Hofstra University. While at Hofstra, Andrea was an advocate with the intensive Child Advocacy Clinic, and she interned with the Suffolk County Legal Aid Society Law Guardian Bureau. Prior to entering into private practice, Andrea advocated on behalf of children in abuse, neglect, and delinquency cases, guardianship and custody matters, and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJS) proceedings in Family Court in Suffolk County, Nassau County, and Queens County.
