About Us

Our greatest strength is the personal attention we give our clients.

Helping New Jersey Families Since 2012

At Keith Family Law Group, we offer a full range of alternative dispute resolution options including Mediation Support and Collaborative Practice. In our experience as a family law practice, litigation may not be necessary in every case. Filing a lawsuit can be a costly, time consuming, and stressful experience that often makes matters worse. In appropriate cases, however, alternative methods of divorce negotiation can be an efficient and cost-effective solution, especially in the current economic climate. By working with a collaboratively trained attorney, you can instead work together with your spouse to help preserve your family and produce a mutually negotiated agreement.

Our Philosophy

We know how divorce can tear families apart, driving wedges between spouses and their children. Divorce law issues such as alimony, child support, equitable distribution, child custody, and parenting schedules, can be complicated and stressful to negotiate. That’s not even including the complex emotions that can come with a divorce. All of these factors can make your separation far worse than it needs to be. We have years of experience working with clients from Westfield, New Jersey and beyond, helping guide them through all of the delicate issues that can arise in divorce and family law.

At Keith Family Law Group, one of our firm’s greatest strengths is the personal attention we pay to our clients. As a boutique family law firm, we choose our clients carefully, developing strong relationships with them through direct and frequent contact. Our clients’ cases are always handled by the family lawyer they consult with, not passed along to an associate. Always sensitive to our clients’ financial situations, paralegal staff are only used where appropriate to keep the cost of preparing documents low.
