With 25 years of legal experience, Ms. Helfand focuses her practice in the area of Family Law. Ms. Helfand has successfully represented both men and women with complex custody and financial matters through negotiation as well as trial through conclusion. Settlement is best, but sometimes pursuing the matter in court is necessary. Ms. Helfand is on the Superior Court’s Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel in Morris and Essex Counties. In this capacity she has successfully provided settlement recommendations to couples who have been litigating for an extended period of time, (often over a year). She is also referred by the courts as an economic mediator. She is a member of the Matrimonial Inn of Court in Northern New Jersey. She is direct and practical, and will always try to negotiate or mediate your matter first to resolve the case amicably; however, if you cannot obtain a fair and reasonable settlement outside of court, Ms. Helfand and her staff are prepared to properly represent you through the conclusion of the matter.
