Brad M. Micklin, Esq.

Family Law


With more than 20 years of experience, The Micklin Law Group is dedicated to helping men and fathers navigate the divorce process. The firm’s concentration on men’s rights helps ensure that fathers are granted the same consideration when it comes to financial and material assets, custody issues and parenting time in family law cases.


“We decided to focus on working with male clients because even though alimony and custody laws are changing substantially in the favor of men and fathers, mothers’ attitudes—and even judges’ attitudes—haven’t quite caught up yet,” says Brad Micklin, one of the state’s only family law attorneys that almost exclusively represents men’s rights. Inspired to practice law by his own parents’ difficult divorce, Micklin and his team provide a personalized and sometimes unconventional approach when advocating for clients’ rights. He’s known for his work with men in high conflict divorces and child custody battles, and makes himself available to clients whenever they need him. “A conventional approach doesn’t always serve every client in every case, and I live by the theory that family law isn’t a 9-5 job—it’s more like a 5-9 job,” he says.


Micklin works alongside his wife and office manager, Carmen, as well as a devoted and compassionate staff that’s committed to helping clients overcome their legal issues. The firm has been the recipient of client distinction awards from Martindale-Hubbell and an excellent rating on Avvo for the past several years. Micklin is also a sought-after legal commentator and analyst for television shows, and has made numerous media appearances on CNN, Fox News, Court TV, Law & Justice and Larry King Live.

“Nobody ever wants to find themselves in a situation where they’re talking to me, but my staff and I are truly committed to the work we do— helping people out of horrible situations and giving them the opportunity to recognize how much better their family’s situation can be on the other side,” he says.

""I think Brad Micklin is one of the best attorneys in his field. He's extremely knowledgeable of the subject matter and very responsive to emails, phone calls, etc. He answers back personally and not through a secretary or legal assistant. He's professional and at the same time, you feel like he's your best friend because he's very hands-on with everything and takes genuine interest in his clients and their problems and needs. He gets results and tries to minimize the process as best he can. I'm very satisfied with him and his legal office. I'd recommend him to anyone that needs an excellent divorce attorney."" -C.G., Short Hills
