Practice Areas:

  • Family Law


I was born and raised in Central Jersey. I attended Kean University and while completing my studies I worked as an intern at the Middlesex County Public Defender's Office, it was there that I realized that I wanted to practice law. I graduated summa cum laude from Kean and subsequently went to Law School at the UALR William H. Bowen School of Law. During law school I led multiple student organizations including the American Constitution Society, If/When/How: Lawyering for Reproductive Justice, and the Environmental Law Society and also participated in Moot Court. Additionally during law school, I worked as an intern at the ACLU and at a firm specializing in both federal criminal defense and family law. I quickly took a shine to the family law cases and realized I had found the area of law which I wanted to practice. There was nothing more rewarding than seeing parents reunited with their children and watching people thrive once leaving unhealthy relationships. I graduated law school in the Summer of 2020 and took the New Jersey Bar Exam in February 2021. A few months later, I received my results and learned that I passed with a score in the 90th percentile. I sworn into the practice of law on June of 2021. I am honored to be working at the Perez Family Law Firm and serving the people of New Jersey; I hope to utilize my past and present work and personal experiences to best serve my clients and their families.
