James P. Yudes has helped to shape the family law landscape of New Jersey in such matters as how businesses should be valued in divorce cases; the method for computing income for unemployed, high net-worth individuals as it relates to alimony; the right to a jury trial in marital tort cases, together with many other family issues.
