Marilyn Chinitz

Spear’s Review

Marilyn Chinitz of Blank Rome in New York is one of the US’s most respected divorce lawyers, having confirmed her high profile with celebrity clients such as Tom Cruise, Michael Douglas and a string of other prominent business leaders and billionaires.

Her career in family law began when a partner at the corporate law firm she was working at asked her to work on his own divorce privately. ‘It really opened my eyes; this is the area of law that I love. It involved valuation of assets, it involved trusts and estate issues, it involved tax issues. It was a very interesting area of the law that I felt I connected with because I like people, I’m able to work well with people, they trust me, so I decided to leave the corporate litigation world.’

Her clients have felt the benefit ever since.
