New Jersey Divorce Lawyer

Richard C. Klein, Esq.

Richard C. Klein handles all aspects of family law, including divorce and separation, civil union disputes, child custody, divorce and children with special needs, parenting time, alimony, distribution of assets, and domestic violence, among many others.

Richard offers services to clients throughout New Jersey. His practice is exclusively dedicated to family law, and, as a result, he is able to provide guidance and counsel through nuanced family law-related issues, such as: the growing demand for family court input, how to approach allegations of physical, emotional, or sexual abuse within the context of visitation and custody, services relating to parental alienation and children resistance to visitation, and cases involving children with special needs. Richard’s experience in complex family law enables him to treat each matter individually, analyzing the specific needs of the client and any child(ren) involved, while always seeking long term, stable results.

His expertise and willingness to fight for his clients has attracted media attention. Because of Richard’s expertise in family law, he has acted as a legal resource and legal analyst for the media on many occasions, appearing on:

  • ABC’s Good Morning America
