Providing Insightful And Detailed Family Law Solutions

Every divorce is unique, but nearly all divorces take an emotional and financial toll on you and your family. I am Melinda L. Singer, Esquire, and I have successfully negotiated hundreds of family law settlements and agreements. I have tried dozens of cases in New Jersey Courts, and I've been through a divorce myself. I conduct my law practice with integrity, discipline and principle — and strive to make this process as painless for you as possible.

I am known for being a tough adversary, as I am aware of both my client's goals and the laws that govern those goals. This enables me to strategically represent my client in all phases of litigation and settlement. The more information I have regarding your family law matter, the better I can represent you and your interests. As a solo practitioner with a talented paralegal team, I am able to offer premier legal services while remaining efficient and communicative.

Certified New Jersey Matrimonial Law Attorney

As of 2017, there were over 41,000 attorneys in New Jersey - and less than a thousand (two percent) of them were Board Certified. As a Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney, I continue to dedicate myself to education and rigorous training in family law. According to the Supreme Court of New Jersey Board on Attorney Certification, a Board Certified attorney is one who demonstrates sufficient levels of experience, education, knowledge, and skill in matrimonial law practice. In addition to specializing in matrimonial law, a Board Certified attorney must fulfill ongoing continuing  legal education requirements, demonstrate a substantial level of expertise in family law, be favorably evaluated by other attorneys and judges familiar with his/her work, and have taken and passed a written examination in matrimonial law. When you consult with my practice, you can rest assured that you are consulting with a knowledgeable attorney at the forefront of family law.

Advice You Can Trust

I was selected for inclusion as a Super Lawyer in 2017 and 2018, as well as one of 201 Magazine's "Bergen's Top Lawyers" in 2013,  2017 and 2018. I remain committed to my clients and the constantly changing family law cases and statutes that impact the practice daily.

Known for my insight into family law, I have also appeared on television programs to discuss relevant topics. I have appeared on truTV, MSNBC and was interviewed by Fox News about Arnold Schwarzenegger's announced divorce from Maria Shriver. I've appeared on dozens of television programs providing insightful commentary to help viewers understand the legal impact of a news story.

I have also been a guest speaker multiple times for continuing legal education classes, teaching the latest topics in family law regarding child support, alimony, emancipation of children, college and child support and support in the high-income cases.

My team is trusted by high-profile clients with complicated family law needs, including high-asset divorces, property division, business ownership matters and cases involving domestic violence. With a wealth of resources in the local community, I work with respected parent coordinators, psychiatrists, psychologists, mediators, accountants, valuators, forensic experts, and detectives to achieve success for your case.

I Have Been Through This Myself — I Understand What Is At Stake

In addition to helping hundreds of individuals and families throughout Bergen, Passaic, as well as other counties in Northern New Jersey with their divorces, I have been through a divorce myself. Many family law attorneys are able to provide legal counsel, but few are able to understand the process emotionally, financially and as a parent.

You deserve a qualified attorney you can trust. With so much at stake, you want to do it right. Get started today by calling my office at 201-870-0826 or by sending an email. Our consultation is built into the retainer — if we continue working together, the consultation is free.
