Jerry D’Aniello Speaks at State Bar Family Law Section Annual Retreat

Bridgewater, NJ (February 24, 2010) – Jerry S. D’Aniello, a Member of the Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A., will participate in the New Jersey State Bar Association (“NJSBA”) Family Law Section Annual Retreat. The retreat will take place from March 10 to 13, 2010, at the Hyatt Regency Aruba Resort & Casino, in Palm Beach, Aruba. D’Aniello will be part of a distinguished panel of judges and attorneys discussing the topic, “What Judges and Lawyers Want from Each Other,” which will offer perspectives from both the bench and the bar.

The mission of the Family Law Section is to maintain and improve the practice of family law through effective interaction with the family courts and by informing members of current legislation and regulations. D’Aniello serves on the Executive Committee and several other committees, including the Annual Retreat Committee. The New Jersey State Bar Association serves, protects, fosters and promotes the personal and professional interests of its members, serving as the voice of New Jersey attorneys. It fosters professionalism and pride in the profession and the NJSBA and provides educational opportunities to New Jersey attorneys to enhance the quality of legal services and the practice of law.

D’Aniello, a resident of Hillsborough, devotes his practice exclusively to all aspects of divorce and family law. Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney, he has worked with clients whose needs lie in all areas of matrimonial and family law, including divorce litigation, post-judgment litigation, custody and parenting time issues, alimony and child support, pre-nuptial agreements, matrimonial settlement agreements, palimony suits, domestic violence, domestic partnership matters, mediation, arbitration and trials. He takes great pride and care in helping his clients make it through these difficult personal matters.

To add to the breadth of his substantial family law litigation practice, D’Aniello also has considerable experience as a Mediator and Arbitrator for all Divorce and Family Law related matters. He is a court-appointed custody mediator for the Somerset County Mediation Program. D’Aniello is also admitted to the rosters of Mediators for Economic Aspects of Family Law Cases for thirteen New Jersey counties including Somerset, Hunterdon, Mercer, Morris and Union. Since 2000, he has served as a Matrimonial Early Settlement Panelist for Somerset and Hunterdon Counties. D’Aniello has received Certificates of Appreciation from 2002 to 2008 from the Somerset County Superior Court in recognition of his valuable contributions as a Mediator for Economic Aspects of Family Law Cases, for the Custody & Parenting Time Program and as a facilitator for the Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel.

D’Aniello is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, the pre-eminent family law association in America, and was appointed to the New Jersey Chapter's Sponsorship Committee. He was also named among the New Jersey Super Lawyers-Rising Stars for 2006 and 2007. In 2003, D’Aniello was selected by his peers as one of the Top 10 Attorneys Under 40 in Family Law.

In addition to traditional client representation in divorce litigation, D’Aniello is a trained Collaborative Law Attorney. His collaborative practice involves working with clients to resolve legal disputes outside the court through a written agreement between all parties, as well as full disclosure of information. The parties, attorneys and other collaborative law professionals, if necessary, work together to achieve what is best for both parties and the family to resolve all issues without contentious court proceedings. This less adversarial approach benefits the entire family during the difficult and challenging time of separations and divorces.

After law school, D’Aniello served as an Assistant Prosecutor in Somerset County before entering private practice and concentrating on family law matters. He is a frequent speaker and author on a wide variety of family law topics. He has also served as a family law instructor for Fairleigh Dickinson University’s paralegal studies division.

D’Aniello earned his B.S., cum laude, from Northeastern University in 1990, and J.D., as a ranking scholar, from Pace University School of Law in 1994.
