Family Law

In representing clients who are involved with divorce or other matrimonial matters, we provide vigorous advocacy along with emotional support and sensitivity. We strive to accomplish your goals as directly and efficiently as possible.

We work along with your divorce attorney to address the concerns related to disability of the client or the children.  Our matrimonial legal services include:

Protecting Clients with Disabilities

Individuals with disabilities require special strategies to protect their benefits. If clients or their children are receiving Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or participate in programs of the NJ Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD), the resolution of a divorce requires careful attention to the requirements for eligibility for those programs. We have substantial experience in creating Special Needs Trusts to protect alimony and assets received in equitable distribution.

 

Special Needs Trust

Special Needs Trusts can protect the income and resources of Medicaid recipients who are under age 65. Contact us to discuss your personal situation.

Family Law & Mediation | Protecting Clients With Disabilities

We bring together many areas of the law and provide a wide range of services. Acting as advisors, planners, or litigators, we meet your needs and generate the necessary results with professional skill, empathy, and dedication.
