Our Legal Team Pays Close Attention To Your Goals

Family law is one of the most emotionally and financially complex areas of law. For some, the life that they had planned for themselves is no longer an option. This can seem devastating and overwhelming. For others, the decision to split is made amicably and both spouses seek an efficient, thorough journey through the process. Our lawyers and legal team understand how personal family law problems can be. Our goal is to obtain meaningful results that best serve your interests.

What We Do

Our lawyers and legal team share one vision – to obtain optimal results for each client. Our approach to solving family law problems is not defined by a single solution. We build strong relationships to learn the most important goals – and fears – that our clients are facing. Our legal team draws on our knowledge of the law — and how the law applies to the real world – to create a focused strategy to best serve the needs of our clients. Resolving disputes efficiently through negotiation, mediation or collaboration can help to reduce stress, anxiety and costs. However, our trial lawyers are well-equipped to aggressively advocate in court to safeguard your vital interests if the opposing party refuses to settle amicably.

In addition to our work as family law attorneys, we also help individuals who are seeking assistance with criminal charges, DWI charges, Municipal Court violations, and traffic violations. In these cases, we take a more aggressive approach as we protect the rights of our clients throughout the legal process.

Who We Are

When you work with Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., in West Caldwell, you are gaining access to a legal team who will guide you every step of the way through a troubling time to a stable, promising future. Our founding lawyer, Melissa Cipriano, is well-known for her aggressive, business-savvy representation. However, our entire staff brings a diverse set of skills and knowledge to the table that serves to produce holistic and outstanding results. Because each family law problem is unique – and exists in the real world – we strive to tailor our problem-solving strategies to synthesize the lofty principles of the legal library and the real-world needs and goals of our clients.
