Practice Name: Corinne M. DeStefano, Esq., LLC
Office Address: 265 Main Street, 2nd Floor, Madison, NJ 07940
About: Couples facing separation and divorce encounter many challenges, especially when children are involved. Parents must resolve important issues with significant thought to the after-effects. I help people resolve their disputes while keeping their personal and economic dignity intact. Collaborative Law is an alternative dispute resolution process that combines the benefits of mediation with the security of representation by an attorney. Using the resources available to the collaborative practitioner we can achieve lasting settlements with less stress and conflict for all of the parties, including the children.
The Collaborative Process is an alternate means for people to respectfully resolve disputes, particularly in divorce and family law. Unlike litigation, the Collaborative Process is private, cooperative and efficient. It reduces stress and results in client-directed solutions. Clients work to resolve their concerns outside of court with the help of a team of collaboratively trained attorneys and other professionals in a manner similar to mediation.
I have dedicated our practice to helping individuals in crisis to restructure their families as opposed to destroying them. By valuing the family unit, we encourage clients to pay close attention to not only the economic cost of divorce, but also non-economic/relational costs. I have over 35 years of experience in family law and provide a high level of legal representation to my clients. Each situation is unique and I strive to tailor each settlement to you and your family's needs.
Practice Name: Debra S. Forman, Esq.
Phone: (609) 397-9333
Office Address: 1 Quarry St., Lambertville, NJ 08530
About: I have had my own law practice in Lambertville, NJ since 1994. My focus is to try to get my clients through a difficult time in their life and protect their interests, while trying to make sure they retain a relationship with their former spouse for the sake of the children. I tell all clients that the longer they fight, the only one that wins is the lawyer - its expensive to fight and extremely detrimental to the children. Collaborative Divorce is the only method I have found in keeping with my principles in a divorce to allow both parties to effectively communicate, work out their issues and be able to remain civil, for the sake of the children. It's cheaper and can offer more creative and lasting solutions in divorce. The spouses retain control of their divorce and future.

Office Address: 600 South Ave. W, Suite 230, Westfield, NJ 07090
About: Collaborative Law is a private process that encourages open, transparent, and mature behavior and cooperation between divorcing parties. The hallmark of the collaborative process is the parties' pledge not to litigate and instead to work towards a resolution that the parties themselves create and agree upon. The parties and their attorneys enter into a Participation Agreement, in which the parties and their counsel commit to reach mutually agreeable settlements - without court intervention. The process involves collaboratively trained professionals working together to help parties develop workable solutions and reach resolutions that divorcing parties need and deserve. In doing so, the parties create solutions to their immediate problems while minimizing emotional damage to themselves and their children, and lay the foundation for a stable financial and emotional future.
