Biography

Allison is a trusted advocate devoted to offering each client the highest standards of legal representation. To her, being someone's attorney means more than practicing the law - it means showing up for clients at some of their most challenging moments and giving their cases the diligence, empathy, and legal acumen they deserve.

Prior to founding the firm, Allison worked in private practice in Moorestown and Glassboro, New Jersey as well as in public defense in Philadelphia, PA. She attended law school at the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated with high honors and was admitted to the Order of the Coif, an honor society for U.S. law school graduates. She also served on the Journal of Constitutional Law and as pro bono research director for If/When/How. Before becoming an attorney, she worked as a reporter for The Financial Times and graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Princeton University.

Allison concentrates her practice on family law, criminal law, domestic violence matters, and estate planning. She has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in Final Restraining Order hearings and handles divorces, child custody disputes, child support matters, post-judgment litigation, appeals, will drafting, adoptions, traffic violations/DUIs, and criminal law cases in both Superior and Municipal Court.

Outside of work, Allison volunteers as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) for children in the Camden County foster care system. She enjoys long-distance running and spending time with her husband and children.

Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered
Q. I am looking to file for divorce in the state of New Jersey. I am not sure if my partner had already filed.
A: If your partner filed for divorce, typically they would have you “served”, meaning you would be given a copy of the divorce complaint and any ancillary documents. If your partner has an attorney, you can also contact their office to inquire about the status of any complaint/filing. If your partner has filed, you can respond to their complaint in the form of an answer or an answer and counterclaim.

If you do want to proceed with filing for divorce or have been served with divorce papers, I would recommend consulting a family law attorney to determine your next steps and how to proceed strategically in the litigation.

I hope this helps!

Q. How long it takes in hudson county after MSA been filed been there waiting for more than year in an uncontested divorce?
A: If you and your spouse have been waiting for a Final Judgment of Divorce back from the Court, it may be worth it to contact the Family Division in Hudson County and inquire as to the status of your matter. The phone number is available on the New Jersey Superior Court website. It may be that the Court is simply backed up or it could be that there is additional information or filings needed to finalize the divorce. A phone call to the Court may assist you in determining what exactly is holding up the divorce and how to move forward. If you continue to encounter barriers, it may also be useful to consult a family law attorney. I hope this helps!

Q. I’m married with a 4 year old child. My wife wants to separate. move to Florida and take my daughter. She wants me to
A: This sounds like a difficult decision at an emotionally charged time. I would strongly recommend taking a pause before consenting to the move. When parties are going through a divorce, it can sometimes feel easiest in the short term to just agree and minimize conflict. However, long-term, just agreeing may not be what’s in your best interests or importantly, what’s in the child’s best interests.

When parties do agree to a relocation as part of a divorce or custody dispute, typically provisions for parenting time for the other parent are included in either a consent order or marital settlement agreement. Usually, if the child is school age, the parties can agree for one parent to have custody during the school year while the other can have custody over school breaks and over the summer. This can allow both parents to have time with the child, notwithstanding the limitations posed by the distance between them.

I hope this helps as you navigate this process. I would also recommend scheduling a consultation with a family law attorney who can walk you through your options and potential consequences.
