Located in Hackensack, my law firm offers comprehensive, thorough and in-depth family law services for those throughout northern New Jersey. I am Melinda L. Singer, Esq., and I have represented a range of clients, from high-profile individuals with complex divorces to more straightforward divorces. Along with my talented paralegal team, I have successfully negotiated hundreds of family law agreements and settlements, with a variety of components, including alimony, child support, parenting time, complex asset division, business ownership rights and domestic violence charges. My clients appreciate my attention to detail, my straightforward advice and ability to be assertive on their behalf.
As a board-certified matrimonial law attorney, I dedicate myself to continuing education and training in family law. Only approximately 2 percent of New Jersey lawyers can claim to be board-certified, as it requires rigorous testing and meeting exceptionally high standards. In addition to being a board-certified attorney, I have also shared my insight on family law on television networks such as truTV, MSNBC and Fox affiliates. I have been selected among the top lawyers in Bergen County by (201) Magazine in 2013, 2017 and 2018. I have also been selected to the Super Lawyers list in New Jersey in 2017 and 2018.
In my free time, I enjoy attending motocross events around the country with my husband, Billy Sargent, former AMA Pro. MotoCross Racing Team, Little Bird Racing, which I started in 2007, sponsoring talented racers all the way to Loretta Lynn’s.
