Our knowledgeable attorneys have extensive experience in all phases of family law and matrimonial litigation, in cases ranging from straightforward to exceptionally complex matters, such as those involving complicated assets and compensation issues. That said, we take pride in avoiding unnecessary conflict. We represent our family law clients in an efficient and cost-effective manner, bringing civility and respect to each case and recognize that each client’s family and personal circumstances are unique. We are proactive in developing innovative solutions and understand the sensitive and often emotional nature of our clients’ concerns.

In addition to handling traditional matrimonial issues, we have significant expertise in navigating the impact of divorce upon closely owned businesses. We represent clients in the dissolution of commercial entities and buy-outs and serve as trusted advisors regarding the challenges of planning to operate a family business post-divorce.

In some cases, parties may prefer to resolve their issues more amicably and without litigation. For those clients, the Pashman Stein Walder Hayden Family Law Group offers a team of N.J. Ct. R. 1:40-12 qualified Family Law Mediators to assist with the resolution of family law matters through mediation and other alternate dispute resolution processes.
