A family lawyer based in New York City, I deliver a full range of family law services -- from simple uncontested divorces to complex property distribution, high-conflict custody and parenting disputes.

I am dedicated to the highest standards of excellence, professionalism and integrity of the legal profession, and have a long term commitment to caring for the legal rights and welfare of women and children.

My goal, always, is to advise clients in an informed and sensible manner, while remaining empathetic to the struggles and pain that are often unavoidable when resolving complex family conflicts. I know that my clients are going through a difficult time. Through thoughtful consideration and drawing on my experience in resolving family law matters, I hope to provide the best results possible, and deliver my clients with optimism and confidence to their new lives.

I offer expertise in:

Family law proceedings in New York State Supreme Court and Family Court

I have earned my J.D. and L.L.M. degrees from Columbia University School of Law, New York, New York. I also have earned a Master of Law from Peking (Beijing) University School of Law, China. My family law experience started from 1996 at the Center for Women's Law and Legal Services of Peking University, the first Chinese non-governmental legal aid service for women highly praised by Ms. Hillary Clinton in her memoir. My legal career continued in one of the largest international law firms in the world. I established my own practice in April, 2004. I bring to the practice of family law a deep appreciation of differences among countries in substantive law, judicial procedures, legal environment, language and culture. The New York Law Journal named Law Office of Rong T. Kohtz as one of the three Best Judicial Enforcement Providers (International) in 2012 and in 2013.
