A Commitment To Excellence

We are primarily a family law firm and are well-known as one of the most established, sought-after firms in northern New Jersey, especially when the issues are complex.

We handle a wide range of divorce-related issues, including child custody disputes, division of substantial assets, prenuptial agreements, guardianships, adoptions and dissolution of domestic partnerships.

Our experience allows us to work with accountants and other experts to resolve these matters in the most efficient way possible. Depending on the facts of each case, we use the appropriate strategies to further the best interests of our clients. Besides the traditional court-based divorce, our attorneys are leaders in the use of collaborative divorce, as well as alternative dispute resolution techniques like mediation and arbitration.
