Laurie L. Newmark and the seasoned divorce and family law attorneys at Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark understand that they’re advocating for mothers, fathers, husbands and wives with specific needs and individual concerns. Newmark and cofounding partners Paul H. Townsend and Dominic A. Tomaio bring a unique approach to family law by providing unwavering support and compassionate advocacy to each and every client.


All three partners are certified by the NJ Supreme Court as matrimonial law attorneys. Newmark, Townsend and Tomaio use their vast experience to help every single client feel empowered. “We ensure that each client has the necessary information to make informed decisions about their future,” says Newmark, a mother of two. “This enables us to negotiate unique resolutions on their behalf,” Townsend says.


Throughout her career, Newmark has been passionate about helping families. She served on the board of trustees for CASA, an organization that advocates for children in the court system, and is a longtime volunteer representing victims of domestic violence.

Tomaio is a trained mediator who routinely handles complicated divorce cases and focuses his practice on a personal dedication to each and every client. “We understand the sensitive issues that can arise throughout the divorce process. We use our vast professional judgment and experience to provide practical advice and creative solutions to your unique circumstances,” he says.

Townsend is a skilled litigator. He relies on his professional expertise and honesty to help clients not only survive their divorce, but thrive for years to come.“When you’re going through a difficult time, one of the most important things is having not only an advocate, but someone who truly understands you and can navigate you through the process. You get that at our firm,” Newmark says.
