Firm Overview

Rachel S. Cotrino is the author of the The Family Law Blog and currently practices family law in Ocean County, New Jersey. Rachel's expertise extends into matters involving child support, child custody, equitable distribution and distribution of assets, parenting time and visitation, domestic violence and divorce.


Rachel began her career as a distinguished law clerk for the Honorable James M. Blaney, J.S.C. in the Superior Court of Ocean County. While a law clerk, Rachel assisted the Court in preparing tentative decisions and orders on matters relating to child support, visitation, and custody. During this time, Rachel mediated disputes in the Court's Special Civil Part. This experience honed her mediation and negotiation skills; skills that play a big role in the outcome of your divorce.


Rachel is a firm believer in tailoring each client's strategy to their unique situation. All clients are unique and so are their circumstances. In recognizing the strength and weakness in each case, Rachel is able to advise her clients how to proceed and helps her clients examine all options that may provide the best outcome.


Rachel recognizes the interplay between relationships and obtaining her client's goals. Divorce is a process that in large part is focused on obtaining all of the relevant information regarding the financial and interpersonal underpinnings of a person's relationship. This process, while somewhat uniform, may be difficult to navigate due to one party's non-compliance or to a parties' historically secretive nature during the term of the divorce. The divorce process is further complicated by one party's unilateral decision to liquidate assets and/or financially "cut off" a spouse in the months leading up to divorce. The parties' interpersonal relationship plays a large role in determining the course of one's divorce. Issues of control, domestic violence, and abuse must be identified in order to craft a strategy that deals with the financial and interpersonal realities.


It is important that you choose an experienced practitioner who is knowledgeable in the law but who is also cognizant of the role personalities play in the divorce process.


Rachel can be reached at her office during regular business hours at 732-987-9966. Please contact the office to schedule an initial consultation.
