Robyn Mann is dedicated to representing her clients during some of their most challenging times. Using careful legal and practical analysis, creative thinking and a deep insight into each family’s needs, she provides individualized and workable solutions for her clients. With 30+ years of experience of practicing law in New York City she is regarded as an authority on family law mediation.
Thus, Robyn offers representation that focuses on the needs of her clients and their families. When those needs call for tough representation, she is an adept fighter for their rights. When they require clarity and openness to pursue a goal that is best for all, she has the superior communication and relational skills to meet them.
Compassionate and Insightful Mediation Skills
Robyn has developed compassionate and insightful mediation skills with which she is able to help families create parenting plans, settlement agreements, or just address the myriad of small everyday issues of divorce or separation. Helping a couple or a family to work through the problems that arise in their separation or divorce is one of the most rewarding achievements in Robyn’s life.
Grit and Determination from an Early Age
Robyn grew up outside of NYC in Westchester County and spent her early years training and competing in equestrian competitions. Little did she know, that the grit, determination and hard work that defined much of her childhood at the barn and at the horseshow would continue to pay dividends as she discovered her calling to become a lawyer.
A Life Dedicated to Making a Difference
Robyn practiced law for many years, but after seeing the “collateral impact” of both her prior divorce and the divorce of her husband, Steve, Ms. Mann dedicated herself to making a difference with her extensive mediation skillsets. So, she established Robyn Mann Mediation to offer a more productive divorce solution.
Over the decades, Robyn has represented hundreds of clients in the court room or through mediation. No matter the venue, Robyn has one goal – to fight for outcomes that are truly in the best interest of her clients during an emotionally taxing time of their life.
Hiking, Skiing, and a Beloved Four-Legged Child
Today, Ms. Mann finds joy in hiking, skiing, and spending time with her husband and four-legged “child”, Dutch, in their Riverdale home. Robyn and Steve enjoy all of their children, grown and not so grown, as much as they can. Having a multilevel experience of parenting has given Robyn the skills to speak to the needs of the child, in all of her endeavors
A Commitment to Community
Robyn is committed to using her skillset and privileges she’s been afforded to benefit her community. She dedicates a substantial amount of her free time to her tireless work with the non-profit organization, Family Kind. Family Kind is dedicated to providing solutions for working class and economically disadvantaged families involved in custody litigation, divorce, supervised parenting time orders, and many other family challenges that involve the court system. Her support of Family Kind is truly the embodiment of the principles and values which drive her life’s calling.
Robust Education, Experience, and Accolades
Robyn is admitted to the Bar in New York, Connecticut and Colorado. Today, Robyn represents her clients in the Supreme Courts, Civil Courts, Family Courts and Surrogate Courts of New York, guiding them through complicated and difficult divorces, child custody disputes, and child support enforcement matters.
