Laurie A. Bernstein is an experienced, talented and trusted family law attorney.

I am Laurie A. Bernstein. I have been practicing law since 1982 and have more than 35 years of experience. I am a member of the New Jersey, New York and Florida Bars. My office is dedicated to protecting your legal rights. I specialize in family law, divorce, child custody, child support, and post judgment divorce issues. I can also represent you in cases involving personal injury, workers compensation and general litigation.

I strive to give all my clients a personal experience dealing with legal issues. All of my clients are given quality and individual representation. You will not be represented by an associate. Each client receives personal one-on-one attention from me.

The legal system can be a harrowing and overwhelming experience to a client who has never been involved with the Court system before. I am a compassionate, dedicated and a knowledgeable professional who will work diligently on your behalf and keep you informed every step of the way of the legal issues involved in your case. I will work hard to accomplish a conclusion to your satisfaction.

I have many years of experience in the New Jersey legal system and practice in most Counties in the State. I am proud to have served on the Early Settlement panel for 25 years, where I assist other attorneys and their clients in reaching amicable solutions to their divorce cases without the need for trial. I was appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Panel Chair for the Fee Arbitration Committee and have served on the Committee for an extended term.

If you need to speak with a lawyer about a legal matter, I encourage you to contact me to schedule a confidential consultation. If you are going through a divorce, need assistance in a child custody issue or any family law related matter, I am anxious to assist you in addressing your legal issue as your counselor, negotiator, litigator or advisor. Since each client and case is different, I creatively and compassionately tailor my recommendations and approach to each client’s individual needs. I have diverse skills to resolve both simple and complex legal issues, and will aggressively litigate your case through trial and appeal if necessary. I maintain the personal attention and close communications that are the hallmark of my firm and which has resulted in decades of satisfied clients.
