He also offers his time, articles and other resources to continually teach his clients about the law, even after representation is over. He even holds client dinners and other events.

Based on his work as a litigator, Brad has earned numerous successful results, including successfully arguing the lead case in New Jersey divorce law defining the laws concerning limited duration alimony and its modification. In addition to hislitigation and negotiation experience, Brad also has extensive training and experience in the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) processes. After serving as a mediator for the Attorney General’s Office in Delaware, he received certification as a mediator through the Superior Court of New Jersey. He later received an invitation to serve as a commercial arbitrator from the Assignment Judge, Union County, New Jersey.


Brad is also a November 2014 recipient of the prestigious National Advocates Top 100 Lawyers award for his advocacy on behalf of family law clients in New Jersey.   The award was granted based on Brad’s superior qualifications of leadership, reputation, influence and performance in family law.
