Attorney Val Cesanelli handles family law cases for our firm, with a focus on child custody cases and matters arising out of the process of separation and divorce, such as separation agreements and questions of spousal and child support. Val also handles other family related cases, such as paternity actions, legitimations, name changes and changes in birth certificates, as well as provides drafting services of powers of attorneys and simple wills.
Val is as much a litigator as she is a counselor at law for her clients. As a mother of three children and three stepchildren, Val is both professionally and personally very aware of the complex issues involved in the process of separation and divorce. Val draws from her background in the social sciences to ran a practice that is not only compassionate and committed to the best interest of her clients, but that also seeks to minimize both the financial as well as the emotional turmoil that oftentimes accompanies divorce. By providing her clients with strategic legal planning at the outset of the divorce process, Val offers her clients ongoing counseling in legal matters regarding the well-being of both the divorcing and the divorced families.
