Bryn Lovejoy-Grinnell

Experiencing the breakup of a relationship can be the most difficult experience of your life. For her entire career, Bryn has focused her practice on navigating her clients through the steps, legal and otherwise, toward finding stability and safety after the end of a relationship. Bryn began her career as a domestic violence advocate at the Advocacy Center in Ithaca, where she assisted her clients in obtaining orders of protection and emergency custody of their children as well as providing emotional support and shelter services when necessary. Her passion for advocating for victims of domestic violence spurred her to go to law school. For the first eight years of her legal career, she represented clients at the Frank H. Hiscock Legal Aid Society in family and matrimonial matters. Since starting her private practice, she has represented women and men in many different courts in Central New York and handles both litigated and collaborative divorce and family law matters.

The four types of clients Bryn represents are:

  • Women and men victims of domestic violence looking for legal solutions to their problems, including orders of protection, custody, child support and divorce. Bryn understands that you need a responsive attorney able to answer your questions quickly, address problems in a timely manner, and guide you through decisions on legal and non-legal issues.
  • Women and men seeking a compassionate and civil legal end to their relationship, without going to court if possible. Bryn works with other members of the CNY Collaborative Law Professionals, as well as other attorneys, to promote respectful decision-making, foster empathy between the spouses, and facilitate a fair resolution to the divorce while respecting the needs of their children.
  • Women and men who are considering their options with regard to how to end their relationship. Because Bryn has experience in both contested and collaborative divorces and family law cases, she can effectively guide you through your options as well as advise you as you take your first steps toward ending the relationship.
  • Children whose parents or guardians are involved in the court system. As an attorney for children, Bryn is appointed by judges and court appointed referees to represent children in custody, family offense, and neglect matters.

On many occasions Bryn has successfully argued at trial on behalf of victims of domestic violence to win sole legal and primary physical custody and orders of protection as well as divorce.

Bryn’s clients appreciate that she is responsive to their questions throughout their case, explains every step of the process, and knows them and their case inside and out. Bryn will give you the information you need to make the best decision for you and your family, and then she will advocate for you in court or with your partner’s attorney out of court. Bryn routinely collaborates with other professionals, such as forensic accountants, real estate appraisers, mental health professionals, and domestic violence advocates.

I really want to thank you again for everything. A dark chapter of my life is finally at a close. I haven’t felt this relaxed or at peace for a long time. I slept through the night for the first time in months. It won’t be the worst thing that’ll happen to me but it’d been the worst thing thus far. You were wonderfully patient with me and I don’t think I would’ve held it together half as well as I did if you weren’t there to help me through. You have a very calming presence about you, you made all the hard work you put in look effortless and I just want you to know I’m very grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you… I was lucky to have you on my team.
