Review Francesca O'Cathain

About Me

I am a Bergen County-based family law attorney who is known as a firm and strong advocate for my clients. I match my strong approach to litigation with compassion and understanding for the unsettling experience that my clients and their families experience when going through a divorce. I invite you to check out the review of some of my former clients (forthcoming).  


 


I am the senior associate at Lesnevich &Marzano-Lesnevich, LLC where I practice exclusively in the area of matrimonial law.  I am certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Attorney.  I am also a member of the New Jersey Family Law Section Executive Committee, as well as the treasurer of the Irish American Bar Association of New Jersey.
