Morris County Divorce. From Distressed to De-Stressed.

Divorce is difficult enough. Your attorneys shouldn’t make it worse. At Jacobs Berger, we help take you from distressed to de-stressed both during the divorce process and after.


Going through a divorce or family law matter can be overwhelming and while we can’t wave a magic wand and eliminate all of your worries, we can and do control aspects of the process to allow our clients to focus on what really matters. We can’t control everything, but we can control our client’s experience with us.


We know life brings a ton of competing priorities (family, career, community, friends), and divorce just adds to the mix. Our practical, goal-oriented advice is designed to weigh options and plan for long-term sustainable success.

The De-Stress Divorce Doctrine:The Jacobs Berger Approach

Everyone on the JB team understands the legal process creates complex dilemmas that require creative, multi-dimensional solutions. We have developed five principles that are the underpinnings of our attorney-client relationship. These commitments ensure that you won’t be left in the dark. We will find the time to TALK to you, answer your emails and keep you updated. We also promise to do so in a way that is digestible, understandable, and which gives you actual answers to your real questions. We also promise not to leave you the minute the divorce is over, instead choosing to help you find resources before and after the ink is dry so that you can make sure your life, not your divorce, is your top priority.

“One Size Does Not Fit All...You Should Demand A ‘Bespoke’ Fit”

You’ve had the moment of grabbing that not-so-flattering swimsuit, that ill-fitting dress shirt, or the shoes that looked fancy but absolutely destroyed your feet. We’ve all made those impulse buys because it was convenient, or we felt desperate....

“Can You Hear Me Now?”

We’ve all had the moment in the middle of the super important call, and…dead air. The point you’re trying to make is gone. Are you trying to get your thoughts and concerns across while balancing the everyday demands of work, parenting, and well, life, and you feel like no one is hearing you? ...

“The Old ‘You Get What You Pay For’”

Do you want a lawyer who is going to fight for you? Hell, yes! Do you want a lawyer who is going to fight for the sake of fighting or who fights over everything but comes up with nothing?...

“Right This Way”

Going through a divorce or family law matter can be overwhelming and all-encompassing. Feel like the walls are closing in or that your ever-full plate is tipping over precariously?....

“Now Serving Number.......”

It is common to feel like another number, a ticket at the deli counter or a cog in the wheel when going through a divorce or a family law matter. The process is already stressful and uncertain. What would make it worse is partnering with a law firm that doesn’t find the time to TALK to you....
