As the family law expert and visionary
entrepreneur behind the largest divorce
and family law firm in New Jersey, we
asked Bari Zell Weinberger to answer
a few questions about what sets her and
her firm apart.
Q: What drew you to practice family
A: Early on in my legal career, I realized that
I have a strong and very personal desire
to be there for families and individuals
experiencing major life transitions related
to family law and divorce matters. I too
was affected by divorce at a young age
so I understand what my clients are going
through. Helping parents create a child
custody arrangement that everyone feels
positive about, making sure a domestic
violence victim receives the protection
they deserve, providing security and
peace of mind for someone going through
a divorce....these incredibly rewarding
moments are what keep me motivated
each and every day.
Q: As the founder of Weinberger Law
Group, can you tell us what makes your
family law firm different?
A: We are a group of incredibly diverse
legal heavyweights...smart, enthusiastic,
resourceful, and agile family law attorneys.
Some of us are professors of law, or have
backgrounds in finance, psychology and
social work. Others are bilingual, and
even a few are political office holders.
Two key factors differentiate us: 1. our
ability to draw on these additional skillsets
for the benefit of our clients and 2. our
deep commitment to our core mission to
safeguard, secure and protect every family
law client who reaches out to us for help.
Q: How do you select the right divorce
attorneys for the firm?
A: To use a sports analogy, building
and leading a successful family law
firm is much like being the coach of a
professional sports team. Every single
family law attorney on the Weinberger
Law Group team is at the pinnacle of their
game...but they are also high performers
who are deeply committed to one another’s
personal growth and professional success
and the success of all of our clients. Having
a strategy-first, ego-second outlook is a
must. When we recruit new team members,
we look for all-star attorneys with proven
track records of serving divorce and family
law clients with the utmost of integrity,
commitment and compassion.
Q: You and your attorneys get amazing
reviews from clients. What do you do to
create and foster excellence in the firm?
A: We have one guiding principle: to
safeguard our clients. People come to us
desperate for answers. How will my divorce
affect my future? What about my kids?
Will I ever feel in control again? We listen
carefully to the questions and concerns
our clients have, and then leverage our
resources to collaborate and build winning
legal strategies and positive solutions....
even in the most complex of divorces or
family law disputes.
Q: You have been a featured expert in
the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and
other media outlets, you founded the
largest divorce and family law firm in
New Jersey, and you are an in-demand
practicing attorney. What is next for you
and your firm? What is your strategy?
A: Our firm continues to grow, in more
ways than one. For example, this year we
introduce a new way to help people going
through divorce: Family Law: Jersey Style.
This is a series of consumer-friendly law
guides on contested and uncontested
divorce, child custody, alimony, and more.
Our strategy for the continued growth of our
firm is to be there for families during their
time of need: to ensure that we are building
futures for our clients that are bright,
protected, and secured.
