AKRAM LOUIS, ESQ.

Akram Louis, Esq. is licensed to practice law in the State of New York, State of New Jersey and in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. He has been practicing matrimonial and family law for almost 10 years in all of New York City boroughs, as well as Long Island, Westchester County and Orange County. In 2018 and 2019, Mr. Louis was nominated and selected as a top 10 family law attorney under the age of 40 in New York by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys. He is also a proud member of the Queens County Bar Association, Kings County Bar Association, and New York City Bar Association.

As a child of divorced parents, Mr. Louis understands not only the legal aspects, but the emotional demands families go through when ending a marriage. Prior to starting his private practice, Mr. Louis worked for a law firm that handled over 500 divorces each year. He handled cases for clients ranging from those with low income/assets to high net-worth individuals with profitable businesses.

In order to effectively represent his clients in divorce, custody, child support, spousal support or any other family law matter, Mr. Louis knows when to use the art of negotiation and when to be an aggressive litigator. When he first meets with a potential client, Mr. Louis goes over a detailed strategy for the client’s case, making sure that his clients leave the office knowing everything about their case.  Over the years, he negotiated hundreds of settlements that were in his clients’ favor, which saved the clients from paying costly trial fees.
