About Seth

Learn Seth’s areas of practice.

For more than 14 years, I have devoted my entire professional practice to family law and related matters, including all aspects of dissolution; child custody disputes; alimony and child support modification; prenuptial and settlement agreements; equitable distribution; domestic violence; and post-judgment family-related matters. I have led a number of victorious appeals to the Appellate Division, including Mustafa vs. Muhsin and Khan v. Rajput, the latter being where I successfully argued for the return of wrongfully abducted children.

I have been mentioned in New Jersey Monthly Magazine and listed in the New Jersey Super Lawyers® Rising Stars? Editions for the years 2013 through 2017, a list published by Thomson Reuters. 

I also volunteer my time to serve as an Early Settlement Panelist in Bergen, Morris and Essex Counties, during which I review family law cases and make recommendations towards settlement.

I am an active member of the New Jersey State Bar Association, as well as the Family Law sections of the Bergen County Bar Association.

Prior to beginning my practice in Family Law, I served as the Law Clerk to the Honorable Maureen B. Mantineo, Presiding Family Court Judge of Hudson County, Superior Court of New Jersey. I received my Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University School of Law in 2006 and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brandeis University in 2003. I am licensed to practice law in both New Jersey and Massachusetts.

Represented for Divorce
The good: I used this firm for a divorce and would recommend them if you’re in need of strong representation. Seth was my attorney and was extremely patient throughout the process. He was ready to go to bat for me and is very knowledgeable. I had a few hiccups along the way and he dealt with them accordingly. More importantly, he was willing to counsel me when things seemed unfair. If you’re looking for a firm that will guide you and ensure you get what you’re entitled to, you found them. The bad: This isn’t a cheap firm. I had an MSA and probably didn’t need to use them but happy nonetheless. In either case, this firm will not let you down. Hire them and be at peace!

Don't be afraid to give up the good to go for the great. – John D. Rockefeller
Through an extremely difficult and stressful time in my life Seth was a pleasure to work with and made the horrible divorce process bearable. He is extremely professional, patient and is mindful of the impact financially and emotionally the divorce process has on everyone involved. Seth Parker guided me through the process and without him my divorce would have gone on for another year.I would recommend him a thousand times over and Im extremely grateful for his help, kindness and professionalim. We need more lawyers like him in the world.

Great Lawyer; Great Service
Mr. Parker represented me in a post-divorce matter involving child support and alimony. I had read on the internet and everywhere that courts are very hard on fathers, even those with 50/50 custody like me. I was so fortunate to have Mr. Parker on my side. He carefully and accurately articulated my concerns to the court and made a convincing and compelling case. As a result of his efforts, I walked away with a fair settlement and can live comfortably with the results. I highly recommend Mr. Parker and his law firm, The Moskowitz Law Group.

True Professionalism
I am very pleased with the way Mr. Parker handled my case. He was extremely helpful from the beginning through the end! When I received my court notice to appear in New Jersey for child support modification, I was stationed in California, after hours of researching online for an attorney in New Jersey and completely stressing out, I decided to give the Moskowitz Law Group a call. Within a few minutes of our conversation, Seth quickly gained my confidence and trust. He took the time to listen to my situation and explained everything in terms that I was able to understand. Since I was not in New Jersey, we kept constant communication via email. I always received a response back from Seth as quickly as possible and completely felt that he was covering all options with my case. He even responded to my messages over the weekend which was a great help with my military schedule. Seth ensured I was not taken advantage of, and the court’s results were fair. I am very pleased with my choice of attorney, I was lucky to have had Seth on my side. Mr. Parker has my strongest recommendation for representation in any and all aspects of family law.

Trustworthy, Responsive and Super Efficient
Seth was a blessing to work with. Before hiring Seth I had talked to over 5 attorneys and did all my research. I was always worried that the intentions of divorce attorneys are to maximize their hours and prolong the process. However - Seth was super efficient and it always felt that he had the best intentions to guide me. He knew the law really well and was always available. He was very approachable and answered every question in detail. He was extremely diligent and responsive and always put me at ease. He answered all my questions and came up with solutions that were accurate and not time-consuming. His staff is also approachable and equally takes care of you. I highly recommend Seth!

Exceptional service!
I consulted with Seth about filing for divorce, custody, and asset division. I ended up hiring him on the spot due to his knowledge and confidence he excused during our first meeting. Throughout my entire proceedings he negotiated everything in question with positive and satisfying results. Seth provides nothing less than exceptional service. Highly recommend Seth.

Seth Parker is who you want steering the course as your advocate defending your rights in your dv/divorce case
Seven months ago I was connected with Mr. Seth Parker for my domestic violence case and he was the steady hand through the otherwise stressful and harrowing ordeal. I retained him to represent me through my divorce and he was always above board, professional, ethical, responsive, caring, and gave me the confidence and courage to keep fighting through the most difficult times. Up until the last minute of my divorce was stressful for me, but if he was not there looking out for the best interest of myself and my child and advocating what was right and fair for me as well as giving me confidence and staying by my side each step of the way, I would surely have crumbled under the weight of my situation. I have nothing but praise for Mr. Parker and how he handled my case and importantly how every action and decision was made with the utmost integrity and professionalism and care. I have never had to retain a lawyer prior to this event, and based on how he handled every situation with such aplomb and how much confidence he gave me through every anxiety-inducing court appearance has changed my perception of lawyers. From my domestic violence case to the moment I signed the divorce papers, he was my true advocate; and just as he did for me, I am confident he will continue to tirelessly advocate for what is right and fair for his clients, always remaining cool under pressure, and always honest, ethical, and walking away with a win. Mr Parker is not just your one and done lawyer; he is an advocate you want to keep around for a very long time.

Breaking Stereotypes with Compassion and Competence
No one ever wants to need a divorce lawyer, but if life leads you to the fact that you do; you couldn't find a more compassionate, attentive, and competent lawyer than Seth Parker. While it was obvious through his interactions with the opposing Counsel that he was the sharp, effective, and perhaps even a bit intimidating Lawyer I wanted representing me; with me as his client, he was available, honest, and compassionate. I couldn't be more satisfied with his representation throughout the entire process of my divorce. I must admit, I expected a divorce lawyer to be a bit of a bottom feeder, but instead found a compassionate top shelf Lawyer and Gentlemen in Seth Parker. You can't fake the genuine character traits he exhibits naturally, and of course most importantly, he knows the law inside and out, fights for you and WINS. If you are seeking a lawyer who can guide you through the process and make what is a horrible situation bearable, you would be hard pressed to do better than Seth.

Resourceful, Dependable, Available
Seth provided me with all the tools I needed to place all odds in my favor. Seth’s profound knowledge of the law and jurisdiction system enabled me to take on many difficult challenges; his counsel empowered me to prevail and never falter. I was able to assess all of the implications pertaining to my case with his help to dictate terms that were very favorable to me and my daughter in court. Thanks to Seth, I was fully prepared and aware of each possible outcome previous to my hearing. Working with Seth gave me peace of mind and was able to anchor me in one of the worse times of my life. Seth made himself available and ensured prompt communications at all times, always with clear and concise advice. I am very satisfied with Seth’s work and the role his guidance played in determining the outcome of my case.

Truly is the best...
I had a consult with him about a custody issue that I'm going to court for. He was very straightforward and was completely honest about what I should expect and what to do. He sat there patiently with my husband and I, and answered all the questions we had. He knows his stuff. I left his office feeling extremely confident about my case. But if any issues were to arise, he is definitely going to be the attorney I hire.

Seth Parker-Great Attorney and Human Being
Seth Parker is exactly the type of attorney that you want and need for your divorce proceedings. He doesn't sugarcoat the facts/law just to engage you as a client but instead paints a very clear picture of what the realistic outcome of your case may be based on individual circumstances. He takes his job seriously and is a professional but he can also transition easily into being a sounding board during intense situations when just a listening ear is necessary for his client. I have already recommended him to others unfortunately going through my same circumstances. Seth Parker did not disappoint and quite frankly should open his own practice.

Child Custody/Visitation
I hired Mr. Parker in March of 2017 to represent me in a child custody/visitation case. I am extremely blessed and grateful I chose Mr. Parker to represent me. My case was opened in September 2016 and I was unhappy with how my case was handled within the six months before I found Mr. Parker. When he was assigned to my case, he read all of my documents thoroughly and made sure he knew exactly what I was fighting for: custody/visitation of my five year old daughter. As a father, I knew I had rights but I didn't know how many rights I had. Mr. Parker guided me through the whole process of what he believes I would be able to end with and what is best for me. He stood up for me when things weren't going my way because he knew what I could get in the end. He never stopped fighting for me. Within four months he took over my case, fixed the mess I was in and turned everything around. After two months of attempting to compromise with the other party, we attended the first mediation session. During mediation Mr. Parker knew exactly what he was doing and why we were there. He made sure to incorporate what I want, but also compromise with the other party so they would agree. A draft was written, but not signed which resulted to a second mediation session. In the second mediation session, Mr. Parker and I stood our ground so nothing in the draft would change because he knew I had those rights as a father. A second draft was written and executed in August 2017. I am more than highly satisfied with Mr. Parker. He cared about my case and wanted to make sure in the end I got what I believed I should get. I now have more visitation time with my daughter and joint legal custody. I never thought, as a father, I would have that many rights and in the end get more than what I was asking for. I'm really impressed with how Mr. Parker handled my case and I believe I wouldn't be where I am today if I didn't not hire him to represent me.

The Best!
Seth Parker is a superb attorney and part of the Moskowitz Law Group, which is the best in the State of NJ and in the top ten of the nation. He is really excellent, responsive, thorough, knowledgeable and a keen negotiator. I am a man, a dedicated father, and never in my wildest dream could I have imagined winning custody of my children in a divorce. I had always thought that as a man, I would automatically lose my kids, but I didn't, exactly the opposite occurred. I am blessed every day that I am here for my boys. Thanks Seth!

True Professionalism
Seth was a true professional when working on my case. He was always quick to return phone calls and emails. He was thorough with his explanations and extremely patient. I never felt like I was being judged by him. Seth' s staff was also very attentive and a pleasure to deal with when a concern arose.
