Luke S. Shemeth is Of Counsel in Rawle & Henderson’s New York City office. He is an experienced litigator who handles complex matters involving New York matrimonial & family law, medical professional liability, professional liability, commercial litigation, products liability, premises liability, casualty, and commercial motor vehicle litigation.

Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Shemeth worked as an agency attorney for New York City Legal Services, where he appeared in court on an almost daily basis. His advocacy included comprehensive motion practice, pretrial conferences and hearings, and witness and trial preparation. Many of Mr. Shemeth’s cases were tried to verdict.

Mr. Shemeth is a key contributor to the firm’s matrimonial and family law practice in New York. He has extensive experience in matters involving contested and uncontested divorce; custody and visitation; pre- and post-marital agreements; child and spousal support; and child protection from neglect and abuse. He is a skilled negotiator when clients wish to resolve matters via settlement, and a fierce advocate when a client’s case necessitates the Courts’ intervention.

During law school, Mr. Shemeth interned with the Connecticut Office of the Attorney General, contributing to the civil prosecution of multiple Fortune 500 companies by drafting briefs and memorandums of law, and assisting in trial preparation. Mr. Shemeth also interned with the United Nations in New York City as well as the International Justice Mission in Manila, Philippines, which provided him with the opportunity to hone his skills as a legal researcher.

In addition to his legal internships, Mr. Shemeth has volunteered for a variety of international organizations which focus on urban and rural communities, including an organization providing educational services in Cambodia as well as non-profit organizations developing agricultural and sustainable business projects throughout Central America.
