The Law Office of Andrew A. Bestafka, Esq. is a boutique firm that specializes in all family related legal issues including divorce, custody, child support, college contribution, equitable distribution, restraining orders, wills, adoptions, alimony, and more.
After years with a well known firm I decided to hang my own shingle so I can serve my clients with the attention and fairness they deserve.
I graduated from Columbia University in the City of New York and then attended law school at the University of Cincinnati. I was admitted to the Bar in November of 2007 and, after a short time with the Monmouth County Prosecutor's Office, I started my career as a family law attorney. I have since opened my own practice so that I could fully institute my own model of client representation.
