He moved back to Westchester County in 1986 and continued the practice of matrimonial law in White Plains, NY. He has been a member of the Mount Kisco legal community since 1987.
Mr. Novenstern has been engaged in all facets of matrimonial law for over 30 years. His work in the matrimonial field has included litigation for that entire period and has been expanded to include mediation and collaborative law since 2004.

To stay prepared to address situations, which arise at collaborative conferences, he has taken every opportunity to obtain additional training and to enter into discussions with other collaborative law attorneys. He has lectured for the New York State Bar Association Family Law Section Continuing Education Program, and has taught classes in family law at Berkeley College in White Plains, NY.
Mr. Novenstern is a member of the New York Association of Collaborative Professionals (NYACP), Westchester County Bar Association, the Northern Westchester Bar Association, the New York Bar Association, and the Family Law Section of the Westchester County Bar Association.
