Marcos Fernandez

“Hi, I’m Marcos. I practiced in litigation for nearly a decade, the latter half exclusively litigating divorce actions.  I have seen the financial and emotional havoc hotly contested divorces wreak on families and have also seen how non-adversarial and collaborative tactics work to deescalate tensions and help families deal with unwinding their marriage compassionately. I joined the Vacca Family Law Group to help clients obtain their divorce with dignity and respect.”

Marcos joined the firm in June of 2021. Immediately before joining, Marcos practiced as a traditional divorce attorney at boutique matrimonial firms located in New York City and Westchester County. Marcos is a certified trained mediator and collaboratively trained attorney. Having successfully litigated on behalf of clients, he is intimately aware of the dangers inherent in the adversarial process and the financial and emotional risks posed to families. Marcos began his career in commercial litigation before deciding to practice as a matrimonial attorney exclusively, experience which aids him in handling the complex and challenging financial dilemmas often associated with parties’ divorces. Marcos lives in Forest Hills with his wife, son and dog.

Marcos graduated from Penn State Dickinson School of Law in 2011, where he served as a Comments Editor on the Environmental Law Review. He is admitted to practice in the New York State Bar. Marcos is also admitted to practice in the federal courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York. He is a member of the New York State Bar Association, National Association of Divorce Professionals and the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals.
