Joseph G. Milizio, managing partner at Capell Vishnick in Lake Success, founded a practice serving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clients.
Milizio, who is gay, takes part in groups helping these people and gets business from them. "When I started the area of law in the firm representing the LGBT community, I became aware of a lot of organizations out there working with people in the community," he said. "And I decided I should become more involved." Capell Vishnick also adopted something else as a sort of official cause for which they raise funds. Milizio, who also has multiple sclerosis, involved his firm in that effort as well, by raising money. "I talk about what it's like to have MS," he said.

Joseph Milizio, a partner and head of the LGBT practice at the New Hyde Park-based Vishnick, McGovern & Milizio who has worked with same-sex couples for the past 14 years, said increasingly more of these couples are preplanning, especially to have children, which is a marked contrast from the past. Milizio said that he's already seen a number of marriages that formed soon after same-sex marriage was legally recognized deteriorate to the point of divorce. He believes when the right to marry became legally available, many of these couples looked at it as more of an obligation rather than really thinking about the responsibilities that come with marriage. "So it was done more as a celebratory thing than a rights and obligations type thing," he said. "So that seems to have largely passed from a time perspective." What he sees now is more same-sex couples who have the benefit of contemplating marriage and are planning much more carefully, which has translated into more prenups. "Many of them are seeking counsel with respect to what are their rights and obligations," he said, "as well as whether or not they should have prenuptial agreements in place." Joseph Milizio, managing partner at the Lake Success law firm Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP, circulates an agenda to participants before a call. For a meeting of one of the boards he sits on, he might have a pre-call with committee chairs to set the agenda. The agenda, listing topics for discussion and the person presenting each one, helps with engagement, but also prevents people from talking over each other or at the same time, says Milizio, who is on at least three conference calls per week. Definitely take no more than an hour, or you'll lose people's attention, says Milizio.
