PARSIPPANY, N.J., June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group is pleased to announce that six of the firm's attorneys have recently achieved the distinguished title of Certified Matrimonial Law attorney. This divorce and family law expert status is conferred by the New Jersey Supreme Court to only 2% of attorneys statewide. Joining these exclusive ranks are Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group attorneys Dianna Cavaliere, Michael J. Evans, Robyn Howlett, Laura Mendonca, Veronica Norgaard and Rachel Partyka.
The process for becoming Certified by the Supreme Court is rigorous. Attorneys who pursue Certified Matrimonial attorney status must demonstrate skill and experience in representing family and matrimonial law matters, including such complex areas as high net worth divorce, contested custody matters, military divorce and parental alienation. Attorneys must also:
- Fulfill advanced legal education requirements, including becoming a teacher to other attorneys.
- Garner favorable evaluations by other attorneys and judges.
- Pass a lengthy written examination in matrimonial law.
"We are so proud of our attorneys for successfully meeting the demanding qualifications needed for Certification. We now have a total of 11 Certified attorneys on our team…that's 11 divorce and family law experts! This is incredible and a direct reflection of the drive and skill of our entire team," says Bari Z. Weinberger, founder of Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group and herself a Certified attorney.
