Rona L. Gura received her Juris Doctorate from Fordham University in 1986, and was admitted to the bar in 1987. She started her legal career in the litigation department of a large firm, and advanced to a position whereby she handled almost all of the firm’s appellate work, having written copious briefs and motions in the Appellate Division and the Court of Appeals, and having argued before the Appellate Division numerous times, both as an Appellant and a Respondent.
Rona originally came to Jeanne seeking representation in a post-judgment divorce matter of her own. Over the course of the litigation, Rona came to value the distinct approach that Jeanne had instituted in her practice; one that not only resulted in a favorable court ruling for Rona, but also provided her with valuable advice on handling matters with her ex-husband in the future. In 2003, when Jeanne was expanding her practice and asked Rona if she knew anyone who might be interested in joining the firm, it only took Rona a few moments before she suggested herself to fill the position. That relationship continued to flourish, and in 2007, Rona became a full partner in what is now “Breiter and Gura.”
As a matrimonial attorney who has been through the process personally, Rona brings a uniquely empathetic ear to her clients’ concerns. She has the distinctive ability to appreciate the often emotionally wrenching experiences of her clients, to be an effective advocate for her clients’ needs, and to successfully guide them through the legal process. She has appeared regularly in the Family Courts and Supreme Courts on behalf of our clients, and she also brings her vast knowledge of and experience in the Appellate Courts to the firm. Rona is admitted to practice before the Courts of the State of New York, and the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York.
