My practice operates statewide in the areas of uncontested and contested divorce. I have been admitted to the New Jersey Bar for more than 20 years, and in that time I have acquired courtroom-tested, real world experience handling contested and uncontested divorce cases.

I understand that the divorce process is foreign and unsettling territory for you. Not only are you attempting to close one chapter of your life with as little cost, stress and damage as possible, you are also trying to find a lawyer – frankly, a complete stranger – to help you navigate this terrain.

Rest assured that I enjoy...

Dealing with family law issues?

Family law generally concerns domestic relations and family-related matters such as marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships, adoptions, paternity, guardianships, domestic abuse, surrogacy, child custody, child abduction, the dissolution of marriage and associated issues. Each state has its own set of family laws, and traveling across state borders can sometimes affect your rights and those of your family.

Contrary to popular belief, seeking the advice of a family law attorney does not necessarily mean that something is amiss in your family. A family law attorney can help negotiate prenuptial/premarital agreements for clients in anticipation of marriage or advise same-sex couples on relevant legal issues affecting their relationship. They also can help with adoption proceedings and other procedures involving children.

Family law attorneys often do represent clients seeking a divorce, annulment or legal separation, and the complicated issues that can arise as a result. Although domestic abuse is a criminal offense, some family law attorneys are skilled at handling these situations, as they are often entangled with other family law issues.

Some jurisdictions certify lawyers as family law specialists, which means these attorneys have met the certifying body's minimum requirements for education, experience, and examination.
