Wendy understands the complex and emotional nature of divorce. She also appreciates that divorce impacts each client differently. Wendy’s understanding coupled with her experience and knowledge of the nuances of family law allows her to craft creative and personalized solutions to the numerous issues that may arise during a divorce. 

Wendy’s practice is devoted exclusively to family law and she appears regularly before the Family Part in Mercer, Hunterdon, Somerset, Burlington and Middlesex Counties. Wendy has also appeared and successfully argued matters before the Appellate Division of the Superior Court of New Jersey. She has handled appellate matters related to custody, relocation and alimony issues.

Although Wendy believes that family law issues, especially custody and parenting time disputes should be resolved amicably, she has ample experience litigating cases involving complex child custody and parenting time, as well as relocation. She is a zealous advocate for her clients in the courtroom, but remains compassionate and sensitive to the importance of maintaining the best interests of the children throughout the litigation.

Practice Area Highlight:
Collaborative Law

Wendy is trained in and participates in collaborative divorces. She currently serves as President of the Mid Jersey Collaborative Law Alliance. Wendy appreciates that collaborative divorce is a voluntary process to resolve family disputes without going litigating in court. With a collaborative divorce, both parties enter into a written pledge to reach an agreement out of court and commit in writing to maintain a respectful process, to solve problems jointly, and to work to preserve the integrity of the family. Wendy finds the collaborative divorce process particularly beneficial because it allows parties to maintain control over the solution instead of having a judge make decisions for them. It also helps mitigate the long-term emotional stress and financial burden that is often created by hotly contested litigation. As a collaborative attorney, Wendy represents her clients, but in a non-adversarial manner. Information is exchanged cooperatively with her assistance and, if necessary, other appropriate collaborative professionals to create a fair and reasonable resolution that is agreeable to both parties.

She is also qualified as a mediator pursuant to R. 1:40. This training gives Wendy the knowledge and experience to help clients understand the core issues of their disputes and reach a reasonable resolution. 

She also serves as a panelist for the Mercer County Matrimonial Early Settlement Program. The Matrimonial Early Settlement Program is a mediation program used by the courts to help divorcing couples reach an agreement on the economic terms of their divorce instead of going to trial. Panelists are selected by the Presiding Judge of the Family Part in each county and make recommendations on how equitable distribution, child support and alimony should be resolved after reviewing the facts presented in each case. Panelists must be experienced family law attorneys.
