Navigating Family Court is not for the faint of heart. Although New Jersey Family Law remains the same across its counties, just as every family's situation is unique, each of New Jersey's counties has its own Domestic Relations practice and procedure. With so much at stake, experience matters.
For example, a particular judge in Camden County requires a "pre-trial memo" be submitted to Family Court prior to a child custody hearing, whereas a particular judge in Gloucester County does not have the same requirement; a particular judge in Burlington County, in determining the best interest of a child, does not consider the custody wishes of even a mature child as much as a particular judge in Atlantic County; and so forth. Understanding how these differences can affect a party's case is critical to achieving a favorable outcome, and Joseph D. Lento is a veteran of Family Court.
By day, Joseph Lento worked in the trenches of Family Court, and at night, he studied the law. He helped countless families while working at Family Court, and went on to become an attorney, dedicating his law practice to continuing the work he started years earlier. Joseph's experience both behind the scenes and on the front lines allows him to understand a client's New Jersey Family Law matter from all angles, and allows him to find and employ the most effective strategies to get favorable outcomes for any client.
