Sheryl J. Seiden, Esq.

Specialty: Matrimonial and Family Law 

Patricia A. Dulinski, Esq

Sheryl J. Seiden, founding partner of Seiden Family Law, LLC, is committed to helping families resolve their legal matters and connecting them with the resources they need to embrace a new life path. Seiden’s inviting office creates a reassuring atmosphere for clients as she and her outstanding team provide legal advice with skill and sensitivity on all aspects of family law.


A seasoned matrimonial lawyer, Seiden has been practicing law for more than two decades. Her practice focuses on divorce, custody and parenting time, support, post-judgment issues, and prenuptial agreements.

“We’re strategic and solution-oriented, and we’re always there to support our clients so they can make the best decisions for their families,” she says. Seiden goes above and beyond to help her clients access the resources they’ll need by connecting them with the firm’s vast network of professionals—from financial planners and health coaches to career counselors and realtors.


As a trained litigator and certified mediator, Seiden has the ability to litigate zealously, while recognizing the benefit of resolving disputes to save her clients the expense and emotional drain of proceeding with litigation. A distinguished and trusted lawyer, she has a demonstrated record of success that has propelled her to the highest ranks of the New Jersey matrimonial bar.

Seiden is an Officer of the Family Law Section (FLEC) of the New Jersey State Bar Association, and is slated to be its chair in May 2019. She is a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, NJ Chapter. She has been recognized as a “Best Lawyer in America,” and as a “Super Lawyer” by her peers. She speaks frequently on cutting edge family law issues. “Divorce can be scary and overwhelming, and we try to make the process as comfortable and smooth as possible,” she says. “It’s rewarding to be able to help families and guide them through this transition in life.”

"Sheryl Seiden is one of the absolute best family law attorneys by far! She has been representing me for a divorce after thirty-one years of marriage. Not only is she extremely professional, but she's also compassionate, dedicated, extremely thorough and knowledgeable. I have been nothing but confident and at ease with Sheryl's services at the most difficult time in my life. She cares about her client's wellbeing as much as her cases. Sheryl goes above and beyond and for that I am eternally grateful. I would highly recommend Sheryl Seiden to anyone requiring a family law attorney." -"Karen," Clark

"I've been privileged to have Ms. Seiden on my team through a long and painful divorce. The extraordinary results she achieved in my case are now literally in the history books. Her professionalism is exemplary. Her depth of knowledge is outstanding. Her involvement with the clients is very personal and supportive. I consulted with many attorneys around the country and I have no doubts that I got the best of the best when having Ms. Seiden as my attorney."- "Maria," Westfield

"For post-divorce proceedings with a difficult, unpredictable ex-spouse, thankfully I was referred to the legal counsel of attorney Sheryl Seiden. Her extensive legal experience with diverse clients served me extremely well. In tandem with her client, she synthesizes the options and crafts a road map for the best resolution of what's not the best of situations we find ourselves in. Her advice is always empathetic, timely, pragmatic, most considerate and concerned for the ongoing and long-term welfare of my children and myself. Personable, authentic and skilled in preparation, behind the scenes and in court, Sheryl delivers phenomenal legal services in a fiscally responsible manner." -"Laurie," Ridgewood

"Sheryl was invaluable in helping me through my divorce. My case was extremely complicated due to its international component: spouses from two European countries living in New Jersey during an international work assignment. Sheryl demonstrated great skills in dealing with different international divorce laws and defended my interests by working out a settlement that protected me and my children. Not only was Sheryl dedicated to the case, but she also cared about me as person. I remember that after several attempts to reach an agreement with my ex-husband (which would then allow us to leave the US and return to our respective countries), Sheryl organized a last meeting in her office with the opposite party. Her objective was to have an agreement signed by the end of the day. After several hours of difficult discussion and negotiation, an agreement was signed by both parties at one o'clock in the morning! Sheryl has always been very responsive and efficient. Going through a divorce is a painful experience, but Sheryl's sense of dedication, professionalism and compassion made it easier..." -"Virginie," formerly of Short Hills

"It's widely known that going through a divorce is a very stressful and an extremely difficult process. Having Sheryl Seiden represent me as my divorce attorney really helped to make that process as easy as it could be. She was always quick to respond to all of my questions, and gave me solid, realistic advice. Both of our goals was to get the fairest settlement we could, as quickly as possible. She's personally invested in each and every one of her cases and really makes you feel like you are her main focus…something that's pretty rare and important." -"George," Scotch Plains
