Biography

Maria A. Giammona is a 1998 graduate of Seton Hall University School of Law, having received her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science magna cum laude from Seton Hall University. She served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Randolph M. Subryan, J.S.C. in the Family Part in Passaic County from September 1998 through August 1999.
She was admitted to the New Jersey Bar (1998) and the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey (1998). Following her clerkship, Ms. Giammona has focused her practice on divorce and family law, while also gaining significant experience in school law and real estate transactions. She has worked with several boutique family law firms throughout her career. In 2018, Ms. Giammona opened her own practice. In 2019, Ms. Giammona returned to political science roots, and ran for Freeholder of Passaic County after accepting her nomination for that position.
Ms. Giammona is a member of the Passaic County Bar Association and volunteers for the Early Settlement Panel Program, serving in Essex, Passaic, Morris, and Sussex Counties since qualifying to serve. She volunteered her time for the Passaic County Guardianship Monitoring Program and has been appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court to serve on the District XI Attorney Ethics Committee. She served as Vice Chair of the Ethics Committee in 2021-2022. She has been appointed the Chair of the Ethics Committee in 2022. In 2022, she was appointed to the Wayne Township Board of Adjustment as a Commissioner.
Her experience in the practice of law is devoted almost exclusively to the area of matrimonial practice and domestic relations, both before trial courts and at the appellate level. Ms. Giammona assisted in responding to the appeal of a recent significant relocation matter that was eventually heard by the New Jersey Supreme Court. She is named in the published Appellate Division decision of the relocation matter.
