About Becky Stern

Combining empathy with shrewd analysis, Becky works with each client to guide them through uncertainty and the chaos, providing a calm and clear-sighted presence.

“Divorce can be a time of reflection. It is both an ending and a beginning. I empathize with my clients who are grappling with the question: “How did we get here?” The question I always keep in mind for my clients is, “Where do you want to go next?” I keep their priorities in mind as I help guide them through the decisions large and small that have to be made in litigation or drafting agreements, so that I can help position them for success.”


About Lauren J. Sakofsky

Lauren focuses her practice on all areas of family and matrimonial law, including divorce, child custody and support, spousal support, equitable distribution, and post-judgment matters, as well as prenuptial and postnuptial agreements. 

“I was drawn to family law by my interest in psychology and family relationships, and a desire to work with clients on a personal level.”
