Since her graduation from law school, Ms. Holzman has been solely dedicated to the practice of family and matrimonial law. In addition to representing clients in contested matters, Ms. Holzman is qualified Family Law Mediator and provides mediation services to assist parties in reaching a mutual resolution of their family and matrimonial issues. Ms. Holzman is also trained in the alternative dispute resolution method of collaborative divorce, which better enables her to avoid litigation through this non-adversarial settlement process.
Ms. Holzman was also a contributing author on the ICLE publication, the Yudes Family Law Citator, a yearly treatise that is utilized by almost all family and matrimonial attorneys in the State of New Jersey. She has most recently volunteered her time at the County College of Morris Women’s Clinic, providing legal advice and insight at the divorce clinics, as well as speaks at various different locations on issues such as custody, parenting time, alimony and equitable distribution. She is also a volunteer family law panelist in Essex County for the county ESP (early settlement panel) program.

Allison Holzman has handled complex matters from the initial filing through the conclusion, working tirelessly to achieve a positive resolution for each of her clients. She is passionate about her work and ensures that each client receives the individual attention that they need and deserve, explaining the nuances to each client and providing every client with insight into how the judges might handle each unique matter. Her experience in matrimonial and family law includes not only highly contested issues in the areas of alimony, equitable distribution and custody/parenting time, but also lower conflict approaches, such as mediation or collaborative divorce.
Ms. Holzman has prepared prenuptial agreements, custody and parenting agreements, marital settlement agreements including a distribution of assets and complex valuation issues and determining appropriate spousal and child support while always applying a level of compassion to each client.
