Biography

I practice family law so I can support people through some of the most challenging transitions of their lives. I can help you with legal representation in all aspects of family law, including divorce, child and spousal support, child custody, interstate custody and relocation disputes, as well as domestic violence matters. As the Managing Partner of the Family Law Practice at Callagy Law, I work with a team of passionate negotiators and experienced litigators who advocate tirelessly for our clients. Whatever issue you are facing, you deserve my experienced team by your side.

After fifteen years in the banking and insurance industries, I entered the family law field knowing I could make a significant contribution to individuals and their families with my unique combination of financial, legal, and negotiation skills. I am proud of what my team and I have been able to achieve, becoming one of the most compassionate and innovative family law practices in New Jersey.

Because of my extensive corporate audit background, I am the best option for clients with high-net-worth cases involving significant assets, as well as cases concerning owners of closely held businesses. I have had the pleasure of developing customized strategies for corporate executives, professional athletes, television personalities, and other high-profile celebrities.

More about me:
I graduated cum laude from Touro College, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center and was awarded my undergraduate degree cum laude from Caldwell University.
As much as possible, I give back to my professional and personal communities. I have lectured on a variety of legal issues including, custody, child support, and relocation law to fellow attorneys on behalf of the New Jersey State Bar Association's Institution for Continuing Legal Education. In October 2018, I was appointed by the Governor to serve as Chair of the Board of Directors for University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey.

Legal Answers
1 Questions Answered
Q. Is it possible to get paternity on a 16, 14 and 8 year old that I currently pay child support for and stop support?
A: If you have an existing child support order, it may be difficult to challenge paternity, this is an issue that should have been raised at the onset of the case. You should consult an attorney to determine if the particular facts in your case warrant making such an application to the court.
