Family Law Attorney, Collaborative Attorney and Family Law Mediator
FREE CONSULTATION IF YOU RETAIN MY FIRM!
I am a founding partner of Ruvolo Law Group, LLC. I am a member of the New Jersey Bar and practice exclusively in the area of family and matrimonial law.
I represent clients in all stages of family law litigation and my practice involves all aspects of family law.
My practice areas include:
I have spoken at various seminars and engagements. I have participated in the Early Settlement Panel program in Morris and Essex counties to assist litigants in settling their cases. I have served as a trustee on the Morris County Bar Association.
As a court-approved Family Law Mediator, I mediate matters (with or without attorneys present) in all stages of pre-litigation, litigation, and post-judgment matters.
I have been published in the September 16, 2013 edition of the New Jersey Law Journal, "A New Standard for Prenuptial Agreements".

In 2011, I was fortunate enough to meet Melissa and I knew almost immediately that I would have no hesitation referring clients to her. I felt even better about steering clients to her after she and her sister formed the Ruvolo Law Group. Melissa limits her practice to the areas of matrimonial and family law, and, as a result, she is highly knowledgeable in these areas. I have heard nothing but positive reviews from those who I have referred to Melissa and I strongly endorse her.
