Brian, a partner with the firm, practices exclusively in the matrimonial area of the law, and has effectively represented clients before the New Jersey Supreme Court, Appellate Division, Superior Courts of New Jersey and the Federal Court system. Brian is one of the few attorneys in New Jersey who has earned the title Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney, meaning that our State’s highest court has recognized him as an expert on divorce and family law matters.
From 2007 to 2013, after a selection process based upon peer voting and credentials research aimed at identifying the top 5% of all attorneys in the State of New Jersey, a blue ribbon panel named Brian a “Super Lawyer™”. In 2009, the blue ribbon panel compiling the Super Lawyers™ list identified Brian as one of the Top 100 Super Lawyers™ in New Jersey. Brian was the only Mercer County Family Law Attorney in the Top 100, and one of only two attorneys in the County to be included in the Top 100. In 2006, Brian was honored to be included on the New Jersey Law Journal’s “40 under 40″ list. In addition, Martindale-Hubbell™ has given Brian its highest rating of “AV Preeminent” in both of his practice areas – Family Law and Appelate Practice. Brian was also listed in Woodward/White’s 2013 publication of “Best Lawyers in America”.
Brian has substantial experience litigating all types of family law cases, including complex divorce actions, custody and parenting time trials, domestic violence hearings, and termination of parental rights cases. In addition, a significant portion of Brian’s practice is dedicated to handling all types of divorce/family law appeals before New Jersey’s Appellate courts. Brian receives many referrals for family law appellate work from other attorneys, which demonstrates their trust in his ability to handle the most difficult and complex legal issues.
A member of the New Jersey bar since 1995, Brian received his Juris Doctor from Widener University School of Law in Wilmington, Delaware, where he was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award for his superior skills in Legal Research and Writing. Brian earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Rutgers College in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Brian serves as a panelist in both the Mercer County and Burlington County Matrimonial Early Settlement Programs, a privilege reserved for the most experienced matrimonial attorneys in those counties.
