Amanda appreciates the subtlety presented in family law disputes and that each case requires an individualized solution. She is committed to keeping her clients well-informed of the progress of their case and counseling them on the most appropriate strategy to resolve disputes given the specific circumstances. She wants her clients to be knowledgeable about their positions and takes the time to thoroughly explain how each issue in their case is interrelated.

She is an advocate for amicably resolving disputes whenever possible. However, Amanda understands that sometimes litigation is the only way to achieve a reasonable resolution. When litigation is necessary, Amanda has the litigation experience necessary to obtain positive results. Prior to joining Ulrichsen Rosen & Freed LLC, Amanda worked as an assistant prosecutor for the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office for four and a half years. As an assistant prosecutor Amanda tried numerous cases to verdict and litigated many pretrial motions. She also gained trial experience in private practice where she specifically litigated domestic violence related issues. 

Amanda’s practice is now focused exclusively on family law. She appears regularly before the Family Part in Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon, Somerset, and Burlington counties.

Practice Area Highlight: Family Law Appeals

While at the Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office, Amanda worked within the Appellate Unit researching, drafting, filing, and arguing appeals on behalf of the State of New Jersey. She also argued on behalf of the State of New Jersey before the New Jersey Supreme Court in the cases of  State v. William D. Brown and State v. Nigil J. Dawson. Due to her extensive experience in the Appellate Division, Amanda understands the complex nature of the appeals process and the standards for appeal. With respect to family law issues, a party is entitled to appeal final orders and a final judgment of divorce to the Appellate Division as a right within 45 days of receipt of the order or judgment. However, because family law matters are non-jury matters, appellate review of a decision is limited. An appellate court only considers whether there is substantial evidence in support of the trial judge’s findings and conclusions. It is only when the trial court’s conclusions are so clearly mistaken or wide of the mark that they constitute an abuse of discretion that the appellate court will intervene. Moreover, the New Jersey Supreme Court has specifically held that because of the family courts’ special jurisdiction and expertise in family matters, appellate courts should accord deference to family court fact finding. Amanda can help clients navigate the appeals process and provide effective representation for every stage of the appeal.
