What’s the best advice for somebody who is contemplating divorce in New Jersey?

Hire an attorney specializing in the area of your divorce that you believe will be the most problematic. Don’t hire a general practitioner who does some real estate work, some commercial litigation work, and some matrimonial litigation work, because they are not a specialist in matrimonial matters. Find a lawyer with skills in exactly the areas that they need. For purposes of comparison, if you needed to select a doctor, you would not want a general practitioner for something as specialized as a knee surgery; instead, you’d choose an orthopedic specialist – and preferably one who specialized in knee surgery. The same holds true for attorneys: we specialize for a reason, and that decision to specialize allows us to be better at what we do, to be more knowledgeable in our chosen specialty, and to obtain more favorable results than those that might be obtained by just a general practitioner.
