Sandra represents clients in all stages of family law litigation, including matters relating to divorce, custody, child support, alimony, college contribution, equitable distribution, modification applications, enforcement applications, pre-nuptial agreements, appeals, mediation and arbitrations. With her background in finance, Sandra is well suited for complex financial divorce matters, including those involving equitable distribution of stock options and restrict stock units, business interests and valuations, and the dissipation of marital assets. She is a volunteer attorney with the Battered Women’s Legal Advocacy Project and the County College of Morris, Women’s Center Family Law Clinic and Family Law Workshop.
Sandra has applied the skillset she developed as a family law litigator to her growing estate administration and estate litigation practice. Sandra represents executors and administrators throughout the entire probate and administration process, including the initial appointment of the estate representative, marshalling estate assets, payment and priority of creditors, valuation of assets, filing of estate and inheritance tax returns, the transfer or sale of real property, and the final accounting and distribution of the estate. Sandra also represents executors or administrators, beneficiaries, and next of kin in disputes that arise throughout the administration process. This includes challenges to the will based on undue influence or fraud, misappropriation by the estate representative of assets of the estate, removal of the estate representative, and contested accounting disputes.
