At boutique family law firm Lawrence Law, Jeralyn Lawrence, Rita Aquilio, Ashley Edwards, Kristyl Berckes, Daniel Burton and their team provide a sophisticated, strategic approach to issues ranging from alimony, child support and equitable distribution to custody and parenting time. They have all been recognized as New Jersey Family Best Lawyers this year, and the firm recently welcomed three new attorneys. “I’m incredibly proud to be recognized for our talent, dedication and commitment to helping families through a challenging time,” says Lawrence, a divorce trial attorney, trained mediator and arbitrator and mother of three.

Lawrence helps families resolve personal matters with or without court intervention. An officer of the New Jersey State Bar Association, she’s expected to become its president in May 2022. “My father’s career as a juvenile detective inspired me to become a lawyer, and I’ve been divorced, so I can personally relate to clients transitioning out of a marriage,” she says.

The Lawrence Law team advocates for clients and guides families through the process of divorce while helping them move forward into the next chapter of their lives. “We take a lot of pride in viewing families holistically and strategizing to reach our clients’ goals and an outcome that’s in the best interest of the family,” Lawrence says.
