Bringing A Calming Presence To Emotional Family Law Conflicts
Family law tends to be emotionally charged. The intensity varies with each family, but in all cases, a practical, experienced legal professional is necessary to balance these emotions with straightforward advice and expectation-setting. At Cipriano Law Offices, P.C., we work diligently as we pursue fair resolutions that serve your best interests. We are sensitive to your specific needs and goals. Our lawyers approach each case as a team as they carefully examine the circumstances of your situation. We are committed to unveiling any unforeseen complications, setting clear expectations and helping prepare you for a brighter, sustainable future.

Our firm also provides services to individuals navigating the New Jersey Department Of Child Protection and Permanency. We understand that family issues involving DCP&P and other state agencies can be particularly emotional. We attempt to guide families through these fraught situations and act in the best interests of the children involved.
Providing Quality And Knowledgeable Representation
Divorce is not an uncommon occurrence in today’s society. This does not mean that your divorce is just like everyone else’s. On the contrary, we respect your unique family dynamic and give you the personalized attention and care you deserve as you navigate through this complex time. The common occurrence of divorce has led to the development of many misconceptions and myths. We are determined to dispel these untruths as we help our clients achieve their goals.

She serves on the prestigious Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel, where she volunteers her time to help individuals mediate their issues. If the two parties are unable to resolve their issues, they must visit a qualified family law economic mediator — a title Melissa Cipriano also holds.
