Biography

I help people with complex legal, financial, and personal issues during what is often the most traumatic times of their lives.

A worked as a Senior Probation Officer in Child Support Enforcement while attending Law School at night at Temple University, Beasley School of Law. In law school, I received various awards. I was a Law Faculty Scholar, a member of the prestigious Temple Law Review, and an award-winning member of the Moot Court Honor Society.

After law school, I clerked for two wonderful judges: the Hon. Mary Jacobson, who was the Presiding Judge of the Mercer County Family Part at the time of my clerkship and became the Mercer County Assignment Judge before retiring; and the Hon. Catherine Fitzpatrick, who was the Presiding Judge of the Mercer County Family Part before also retiring. I practiced Family Law at a distinguished New Jersey law firm for the decade following my clerkships, before establishing Conte Family Law LLC in 2021.

Conte Family Law LLC is focused exclusively on New Jersey Divorce and Family Law matters, including child custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution of assets and debts, and all other similar legal matters.

Legal Answers
Q. Can a defendant request a rescheduling online for a restraining order hearing if they're given 2 days notice?
A: It is up to the judge. File an adjournment request with that judge via JEDS, provide the reason you are making the request, and ask the judge for his/her chambers staff to contact you to advise as to whether the adjournment is granted. Otherwise, appear at the appointed time.
Q. After getting restraining order . State charged defendant . What is it I’m there at court for ?
A: You are there as a witness/victim. You should ask any questions and express any concerns to the prosecutor.
Q. Is financial infidelity considered grounds for divorce?
A: Residents of New Jersey for at least one year before filing a complaint are able to obtain a divorce without cause for "irreconcilable differences," as long as those differences have existed for at least 6 months, and there is no reasonable prospect of your reconciliation. Basically, if you decide on your own that you want to divorce, you are able to obtain one without getting specific about why.
