“I combine my years of experience, knowledge of the law, intense preparation and a personal mantra of never being outworked to achieve optimal results for every client. Divorce is a grueling and at times devastating process. I understand that even an amicable divorce will have a profound impact on a couple’s assets, income, children and the emotional health of the entire family. I care about my clients.

As a leading divorce attorney in New Jersey, my priority is to understand each client’s goals and work tirelessly to achieve those results.” Joe Russell, Esq., Partner and Chair of the Family Law Department at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer.
