In 1978, Gary Newman founded what was to become Newman, McDonough, Schofel & Giger, P.C.--four partners, each with decades of experience, dedicated to family law. When you are in need of some thoughtful guidance and vigorous advocacy, consultation with, and representation by, the attorneys of Newman, McDonough, Schofel and Giger will serve you well.

Our firm has represented hundreds of clients in all aspects of matrimonial law, including alimony, asset distribution, child custody and parenting, domestic violence, premarital agreements, non-dissolution disputes, guardianship appointments and numerous other issues. Starting with your initial consultation and continuing thereafter, you will receive a realistic assessment of your situation and advice on how to proceed in a manner that will serve your best interests with due consideration for the people you love.

Sometimes, the resolution of an issue will be best addressed with guidance and
counseling. In this regard, Gary Newman and Linda Schofel have served as mediators in numerous family law disputes. On matters of parenting, Ms. Schofel is also a licensed clinical social worker as well as an attorney and has been appointed by judges across the state as a parenting coordinator.

By way of mediation, arbitration, judicial litigation or formal or informal negotiation, we are able to navigate clients through this most difficult period because of our attention to clients' needs and our reputation for being fair and honest. Our clients come to us from all of New Jersey's people, professional athletes, homemakers, business owners, professionals and employees. Our cases have covered the gamut from identifying and valuing assets in a complex, multi-million dollar, international litigation to drafting a fair and cogent prenuptial agreement.

To further serve your interests, we are fortunate to be able to draw on top professionals as necessary, including accountants, mental health practitioners, real estate and valuation experts and other specialists.

Should an appeal be warranted, we are prepared to proceed. Among our many matters are several high-profile divorce and custody cases, including two landmark family law litigations that were ultimately decided by the New Jersey Supreme Court.

Please feel free to reach out to us whenever you are ready.
