Nicole A. Kobis, Esq.
Specialty: Family Law
Nicole Kobis is a partner with Lindabury, McCormick, Estabrook and Cooper in Westfield who works tirelessly for her clients as they navigate the challenges of divorce. Kobis partners with clients and relies on her experience to help them make difficult decisions arising from a complex, emotionally charged life change.
SERVICES FOR FAMILIES
“Lindabury is a great place for families because of the many services we offer, including estate planning and real estate,” she says. “When you’re going through a divorce, many issues come into play—and we can advise on how decisions made during divorce can impact other aspects of your life.” An accredited New Jersey family and divorce mediator, Kobis is skilled at working with divorcing parties to achieve amicable resolutions. She’s been named a Super Lawyers Rising Star every year since 2016. In 2018, Kobis was recognized by the United Way of Union County for her positive impact on the community by being named their Rising Star Corporate Partner. She also serves as co-chair of Lindabury’s Women’s Business Initiative Program. “Whether it’s in the courtroom or the local community, I want to feel as though I’m making an impact on people’s lives,” she says.
TREATING CLIENTS LIKE FAMILY
Kobis received her JD degree from Rutgers School of Law in Newark. Prior to joining the firm, she served as a law clerk in Union County, where she worked exclusively on family law matters. Kobis’ experience in both pre and post-judgment matters allows her to provide valuable insight to her clients while developing strategies best suited for each individual family. “Sometimes, the advice I give as a lawyer is different than what I’d give as a mom. When clients are able to make decisions they feel are best for themselves and their families, I know I’ve done my job as their lawyer,” says Kobis, the mother of a 4-year-old. “Clients come to me at a time when they feel as though life is crashing around them, and I make sure they feel heard and have an advocate helping them move forward with their life.”
