Rosanne DeTorres has 25+ years of experience helping New Jersey families navigate the deeply personal complexities of family law. One of just 150 attorneys certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a New Jersey Matrimonial Lawyer, DeTorres brings her experience, compassion, and determination to every client.
Although every family’s situation is unique, every client wants to obtain the very best outcome for themselves and those they love. Sometimes that goal can be obtained through mediation or collaborative divorce. DeTorres is a court-approved economic mediator in family law cases, a trained divorce mediator, and a trained collaborative divorce attorney.
Other times, when faced with difficult issues of asset distributions including businesses and professional practices, domestic violence, child custody, child support, alimony, or parenting issues, DeTorres’s experience and proven courtroom skills can make all the difference at trial. With over 27 years of courtroom experience at the superior and appeals court level, DeTorres understands how the system works, and how to advocate passionately and effectively for her clients.
“From the moment I meet with a client for the first time, it’s important that they understand that I am on their side. My job as a family law attorney is to be the advocate they need at a time when they can feel very alone,” DeTorres says.
Her proven track record in helping families get the results they want makes her one of the most sought-after attorneys in Central New Jersey.
Choosing the right lawyer for your divorce or family law case can make all the difference in the results you achieve. You want a lawyer with more than just excellent knowledge and legal skill. You want a lawyer who is responsive, effective and results oriented, yet sensitive to the high economic cost normally associated with good legal representation.

Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. Ms. Detorres and I were adversaries on a rather contentious matter. Ms. Detorres was always professional and courteous. While she was a very zealous advocate for her client, she was also willing to work with me to reach an amicable resolution for our clients. She was a pleasure to work with.
