NJ Divorce Litigation

Our family law department is experienced in divorce litigation in New Jersey. We understand that divorce is stressful, especially when dealing with the distribution of assets, parenting time, and custody. We are result oriented attorneys. The advice that our lawyers give takes into consideration legal and economic factors. Clients are referred to us because our firm understands all legal issues involving family law matters. We fully explain that process to our clients at a reasonable expense.

Spousal Support in NJ

Our lawyers will clearly explain how spousal support and alimony work so that our clients know what to expect in court. We make sure that our clients understand the court’s role in determining the factors included in permanent alimony, limited duration alimony, reimbursement alimony, and term alimony.

We have represented clients in custody and parenting disputes, joint and legal custody arrangements, parenting plans, and custody evaluations. We know how to address these complicated child custody issues. Our law office understands how important it is to maintain your relationship with your kids when you are divorcing and the impact your divorce has on your parenting time.

Our lawyers are experienced in representing clients investigated or charged with abuse or neglect by the New Jersey Division of Youth and Family Services (“DYFS”).


Divorce Mediation is used to resolve a broad range of family conflict in a setting that is comfortable, private, and less stressful than a court room. Unlike a typical divorce case, where a judge will decide how assets are distributed, how much support is paid, how the custody is determined and marital debt divided. We have certified divorce mediators experienced in mediation to allow the parties to resolve all family law issues without the cost of expensive trials. While there are a number of lawyers practicing mediation in New Jersey, there are only a few that have the experience, insight, and skill to enable a couple to mutually resolve their disputes in a satisfactory fashion without resorting to litigation. Our NJ attorneys are experienced in divorce mediation and have successfully worked with many couples who wisely choose to mediate instead of litigation.

Collaborative Law

We have skill in collaborative law, a process where clients work together with their attorneys to address their respective family law matters through negotiation, communication, and the exchange of information.

Pre-Marital or Pre-Nuptial Agreements

If you are about to marry, we will assist you in protecting your assets through a carefully tailored Pre-Marital or Pre-Nuptial Agreement. If your future spouse is recommending that you consider signing such an agreement, we will guide you in making sure that you negotiate a fair and reasonable agreement and educate you on various issues to consider when doing so.
