About Me

     Ms. Mann received her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Political Science from the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey in 1993 and her Juris Doctorate from Hofstra University School of Law in 1996.   



     While at Hofstra, Ms. Mann received numerous awards for her dedication to public service and the various leadership roles she assumed in providing legal services to those of limited financial means.  Those experiences were a prelude to an additional decade of dedication to public service providing legal assistance to those in need through her work at legal services in both Ohio and New Jersey.  Those years of dedication have revealed Ms. Mann to be a passionate advocate for her clients, and have helped her hone her skills in all aspects of litigation - - expertise she now applies to her private practice representing individuals and small business owners and assisting litigants to creatively and peacefully resolve their legal disputes through mediation.



     Ms. Mann now focuses her practice primarily in the areas of family law, residential real estate transactions, federal individual income tax disputes, civil and family mediation and general litigation.   



     Ms. Mann is licensed to practice law in New Jersey and New York and has been admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the United States Tax Court.  Ms. Mann also has been specially trained in Civil Mediation and is included on the state-wide roster of court-appointed mediators as a R. 1:40 qualified mediator.



     Ms. Mann is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association, the New Jersey Women Lawyers Association, the New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators and the New Jersey Association of Women Business Owners.  



     Ms. Mann’s commitment to her clients and to seeking justice on their behalf has shown through her work over the last 12 years as an advocate for the poor.  Ms. Mann’s compassion and empathy for her clients and their situations, combined with her experience, skills and training as a litigator and mediator, enable her to adjust her approach to the matter at hand to seek the best outcome for her clients.
