Family law is personal. We know it’s not just your business, your bank accounts, and your assets we’re working with—it’s your life. That’s why we ensure that your experience working with our firm is a positive one. It’s not just the results that matter. At DeTorres and DeGeorge, the process counts, too.
I know you’ve heard it before, but coming from us, it’s not an empty platitude: We know what you’re going through because family law is all we do. In fact, family law has been my focus for the last 29 years. My first divorce case was for a friend going through a tough time. She asked me to help her out, and I did. I’ve never looked back.
Today, I’m one of 150 lawyers in the state to be certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a matrimonial law attorney.
As a founding partner of DeTorres and DeGeorge, I’ve had the great pleasure of creating a business that’s client-focused. We’re a small, 10-person firm, with four attorneys and an ace support staff. You’ll get to know us, but more importantly, we’ll get to know you—and the intricacies of your life, your work, and your relationships. Nurturing that bond is one of our top priorities. Why? Because the better we know you, the better we can serve you.
We know, for example, that you’re looking for neat ends, not a new set of problems to contend with. While we’re no stranger to court—and if that’s the best avenue for your case, we’ll fight aggressively on your behalf—we’re immensely proud of settling 99 percent of our cases outside of the courtroom.
We also know that you want your case resolved efficiently and expediently. We do it in half the time of the state average.
Our bottom line is you. DeTorres and DeGeorge clients are busy and affluent. Many are business owners or executives, and all have high net worth cases to manage. So go ahead, let us worry about the legal stuff. You've got a life to live.
DeTorres and DeGeorge is a family law firm that puts personal service first. Our four attorneys—myself, Super Lawyer Erin DeGeorge, Super Lawyers “Rising Star” Luther Griffin Jones, IV, and associate attorney Caitlin DeGuilo Toker—strive to be legal experts you can depend on for all your divorce-related matters in the state of New Jersey.
