John J. Trombadore, Of Counsel
Family Law

Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Matrimonial Law Attorney
Certified by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers as a Divorce Mediator

The practice of Law is a noble profession that should serve the highest ideals to which a society aspires. The practice of Law is also a business that becomes more complex each year. Family law demands a constant balancing between business goals and professional responsibilities. As a former Chairperson of the District XIII Ethics Committee, business goals never take precedence over professional ideals in Mr. Trombadore's divorce practice.

John Trombadore has earned a reputation among his peers and clients as a distinguished matrimonial attorney and successful mediator.  Mr. Trombadore has played a significant role in the advancement and improvement of divorce and custody law in New Jersey over the past four decades.

John Trombadore currently devotes a substantial portion of his time to divorce arbitration and mediation. Divorce mediation is a voluntary and non-binding alternative to litigation that offers the parties an opportunity to settle their financial disputes and child custody issues outside of the court system. A divorce mediator must be skilled at evaluating how a judge would decide certain issues and capable of bringing the parties to an equitable settlement. Such a mediator can create tremendous value for the parties by avoiding substantial attorney fees and preventing stressful litigation and trial. Mediation also eliminates the uncertainty of how a judge ultimately would resolve the dispute.
