About me

I am a senior partner in Snyder & Sarno, LLC one of the preeminent matrimonial law firms in New Jersey. We have offices in Roseland, Hackensack and Somerville, New Jersey. We dedicate our practice solely to family law.I strive to produce the best possible legal services for our clients during some of the most trying times in their lives. I believe that family law is best handled by a firm in which all of the members are dedicated to that area of the law and are devoted to delivering the highest quality of legal services. Many of my clients are business people, or their spouses, with significant marital estates.
