“The right team of lawyers can help bring assurance and clarity in an otherwise uncertain world.”

Work; school; marriage; kids; family—our lives are filled with so many responsibilities and obligations that it’s difficult to find time to think about the future until it is right upon us. It’s hard to think about the “what ifs,” so to speak.  What if I lose my job?  What if I decide to get a divorce?  What if I decide to go back to school?  What if I can’t afford the kids’ college tuition?  What if I want to start my own business?  What if I don’t have enough saved for retirement?  What if something tragic were to happen to me or my loved ones?

Those are incredibly difficult questions, and they are even more difficult to answer and plan for. But what happens when the answers are further clouded by the implications of the law?  Suddenly, everything you thought you understood becomes much more uncertain.

The law complicates an already complicated world and impacts every decision we make no matter how personal that decision may be. That’s one of the many reasons I chose to join Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks.  We have such a diverse practice that we can help anyone with a variety of issues.  Whether it is planning a business, dissolving a marriage, planning and preparing an estate for your grandchildren, or simply dealing with a traffic ticket, we can guide you through the process and help you reach an acceptable resolution.  We can help bring assurance and clarity to an otherwise uncertain world.  That’s just what we do.

While I have only been practicing for a short period of time, my experience in both the family courts and criminal justice system prepared me for the challenges and decisions that anyone unfamiliar with the legal system may face. Prior to joining Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks, I had the honor of serving as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Melanie Appleby in the Ocean County Superior Court.  Judge Appleby helped me understand how difficult the family dynamic can become, and what it means to be an advocate inside and outside the courtroom.  I also was fortunate enough to serve at the Ocean County Prosecutor’s Office, where I gained a deep understanding of the complexities of the criminal justice system.  That knowledge and experience is something I will always use throughout the remainder of my career.

I am honored to be a part of Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks. The attorneys have a wealth of knowledge and experience that can help anyone with anything at any time.  Additionally, the firm has built itself a reputation for being not only one of best firms in its respective practice areas, but in the area as well.  I am certainly thankful to be able to continue my career serving the county where I grew up while also being surrounded by some of the best professionals in the community.
