Theodore Alatsas, Esq. was born the child of Greek immigrants in the early 1970s. Growing up in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, Theodore learned the importance of hard work and dedication to his community at an early age. As an exemplary student and community activist, Theodore often volunteered his time to help those who needed it. Theodore attended Brooklyn Technical High School, New York University, and St. John’s University School of Law.
During his early 20s, Theodore worked his way through college and law school, while at the same time actively participating and leading various civic organizations. Among these organizations are the Avenue U Merchants’ Association, Citizens for Neighborhood Action, Change NY, and the Joint Council of Kings County Boards of Trade. Theodore’s community involvement was recognized in New York Newsday, the Bay News, and various other community papers.
After graduating from law school, Theodore began the practice of law in the same location where his parents owned a Greek deli. Over the years, his areas of practice have become more specialized to focus primarily on the practice of divorce and family law. His knowledge and experience as a neighborhood practitioner have uniquely qualified him to handle a matter not only from a legal perspective but with compassion designed to guide the client through the process as smoothly as possible.
Theodore remains active in his community, and has been nominated as a candidate for various public offices, including Brooklyn District Attorney and Brooklyn Borough President, and served as a member of the Public Service Commission Siting Board after having been appointed to the position by Governor Pataki.
Theodore resides in Brooklyn with his wife and daughter. He is fluent in Greek and Spanish.
