Biography

Kristin M. Lis has practiced exclusively divorce and family law in southern New Jersey since 2010.

As a former special education teacher, Kristin brings a unique understanding of the needs of children in family matters. Kristin is also a trained mediator, conducting mediations conveniently by Zoom. Kristin is also available for appointment as a Guardian ad Litem.

Prior to joining Netsquire, Kristin operated her own law firm for a time and worked for a litigation firm based in Philadelphia. After her graduation from Rutgers Camden Law School, she clerked for the Hon. Max A. Baker, P.J.F.P. (Ret.) in Atlantic County, Family Part, from 2009-2010.
