Qualities to Look for in Your New Jersey Divorce Attorney

Here are a few things to keep in mind as you select a divorce attorney and law firm:

Someone with Experience

You want to know that your lawyer has the understanding, legal knowledge, and expertise necessary to successfully resolve your issues. Our lawyers have accumulated over 75 years of combined experience in divorce and family law, making us well-equipped to handle the most complex and challenging divorce and family law matters. In addition, our three founding partners are among the only 2 percent of their peers who are recognized by the New Jersey Supreme Court as Certified Matrimonial Law Attorneys. As renowned leaders in their field, they have contributed to books and publications, served as panelists for the New Jersey Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel Mediation Program, and achieved victories before the New Jersey Supreme Court.

A Practice Dedicated Solely to Divorce and Family Law

If you have a specific medical condition, you seek treatment from a doctor who specializes in that area of the body, because he or she is the most qualified to assist you. Law is similar to medicine in that legal professionals acquire the most knowledge, experience, and resources if they concentrate on one area of practice. Our firm and all of the lawyers within it have dedicated their careers entirely to divorce and family law. As a result, we have acquired an arsenal of tools for solving family law matters and we remain at the forefront of current case law in this complex area of practice. In fact, several of our attorneys serve as lecturers and educators in some of the State’s most prominent law schools, as well as the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education.

A Firm with a Diversity of Specialists

Different divorce issues require different approaches. In some cases, you will need an attorney who knows how to mediate a dispute or negotiate a positive settlement. At other times, you will require a lawyer who has experience in the courtroom and will aggressively advocate for you at trial. Our team of family lawyers represents a diverse set of backgrounds, including those who have held judicial law clerkships in different areas of the family court system. Additionally, members of our legal team serve as child advocates, mediators, arbitrators, and parent coordinators throughout New Jersey.

Professionals with Reviews and Recognition

Nothing can confirm your decision like the positive reviews of former clients and well-respected organizations. Our partners have been honored with inclusion in the New Jersey Super Lawyers list every year since 2006. They have also each achieved 10.0 ratings from and 5-star reviews from former clients.
