How Our Family Lawyers Work

Our ultimate goal is to achieve the best possible result for our clients. We often negotiate agreements that enable each client to obtain their desired result. If an agreement cannot be reached, we do not hesitate to proceed to trial and persuade the court that our clients' desires are realistic and reasonable. Whether the issues are resolved or proceed to a trial, our experienced family lawyers are devoted to achieving a result that is favorable to our clients in an efficient and cost effective manner.

We recognize and understand that divorce and family law, in general, affects our clients more significantly and more personally than almost any other area imaginable. Nothing is more important to you than the relationship with your family and, most especially, your children. Our family lawyers respect and share your concern and we provide aggressive, effective and caring representation in all areas. 

Divorce Mediation May Be the Best Option

Often, the least stressful method for resolving family law matters is through mediation. Our Bergen County, New Jersey divorce lawyers have been qualified and are professionally affiliated with the key divorce mediation services. We have served as court appointed family law mediators in New Jersey and as privately retained mediators in numerous matters.
