Mark Chauvin Bezinque, Esq. is an attorney who focuses on separation, divorce, child custody, spousal and child support, prenuptial agreements, wills, real estate closings and other matters affecting families. Mr. Bezinque helps clients regain control of their lives by exploring solutions and taking actions to achieve their needs, both in the Collaborative Law process and in court.

Collaborative Divorce Law

Collaborative Law is a way of handling family law matters whereby the couple and their attorneys agree to work together in resolving the issues using problem-solving strategies rather than adversarial approaches and litigation.

Mr. Bezinque was the first to introduce Collaborative Law to the Rochester, NY area. As a Collaborative Law divorce lawyer, Mr. Bezinque helps his clients simplify the confusion of the divorce process and enables them to prioritize their needs and those of their children.

He helps clients come to agreement on all issues affected by the divorce, including the separation agreement and terms of divorce and arrangements concerning the children, finances, real estate, visitation, support and custody.

Divorce and Separation Via the Court System

Not all couples are able to resolve their differences collaboratively.

To support clients in this situation, Mr. Bezinque continues his litigation practice. He is a zealous advocate for his clients, navigating through the legal system to achieve results as quickly and efficiently as possible.

He is experienced in helping his clients resolve financial issues such as child support and alimony (spousal support or maintenance); dividing property, debt, taxes and retirement funds; and custody, visitation, residency and decision making.

“I needed an attorney quickly, and Mark was available to take my case as soon as possible. Mark listened and took very detailed notes about my divorce and custody case in our initial meeting. 100% of his attention was focused on the information I was relaying to him.

“Mark is of high intelligence and always exhibits the utmost respect whether in a one-on-one meeting with me or in the courtroom representing me. One thing that really stands out about Mark is his dedication to every aspect of my case. Mark is understanding of the emotional turmoil surrounding my divorce and custody case.

“Mark is always honest about the variety of potential outcomes regarding my custody and divorce arrangement. I feel confident that Mark represents me the way that I would represent myself, only better. I trust Mark. I would recommend Mark to others in similar situations.”
