Scarlett A. Van Syoc

Scarlett is a compassionate and dedicated family law attorney with a profound understanding of the emotional turmoil that clients experience during family law litigation. With Scarlett's empathetic approach, clients can find solace in knowing that their every concern will be acknowledged and addressed throughout the legal process.  With well over a decade of family law experience, much of it spent in the courtrooms of New York City, Scarlett has honed the skill of identifying whether a case will be best served by a gentle approach or an aggressive one.
Known for her ability to navigate the complex intersection of law and emotions, Scarlett helps clients make clear and informed decisions for their future. By providing guidance and support, Scarlett ensures that clients have a solid foundation to build a brighter future upon.

In addition to her expertise in family law, Scarlett brings a unique perspective to each case. She describes herself as having the remarkable ability to find humor in any situation, which can help alleviate tension and foster positive communication. This, combined with her tenacity and extroverted nature, allows Scarlett to connect with clients on a personal level and build strong relationships based on trust and understanding.

One of the most important lessons Scarlett has learned throughout her career is that being the loudest voice in the room doesn't necessarily equate to being the voice heard. Scarlett firmly believes in the power of thoughtful communication and emphasizes the impact of words before they are spoken. This wisdom guides her interactions with clients, opposing counsel, and the court, ensuring that every word spoken is purposeful and productive.

Beyond the courtroom, Scarlett enjoys various hobbies that enrich her life and bring balance to their profession. She is an avid cook, constantly exploring new and interesting cuisines. Scarlett also devotes her time to animal rescue and volunteering.  She finds joy in swimming, hiking, indulging in reality shows on Bravo (a guilty pleasure), and cherishing moments spent with her own rescue pitbull, Quinn.

With Scarlett's combination of empathy, legal expertise, and a genuine passion for helping clients, she is well-equipped to guide individuals through the challenges of family law and create a positive path forward for their clients' lives.
