Mark Gruber, Esq., J.D., L.L.M.
Attorney Mark Gruber heads our family law department and is renowned as one of the lead divorce attorneys in the state of New Jersey.
Fellow, American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers
Certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as a Matrimonial Law Attorney
When people ask how he can practice divorce and family law for more than 40 years, he says, “I help people through a very tough time in their lives and set them on a better course. That is rewarding to me. And a handshake or a hug at the end of the case makes it all worthwhile.” Mark has a love and exuberance for the practice of family law both within the firm, to which he is the Senior Partner, and to many incoming attorneys in the State of New Jersey, he shares his knowledge and expertise in the blogs, articles, and seminars that he teaches. “I love it when a young attorney, after taking a seminar that I have taught, calls me with a question about a problem he or she is having. I am a cheerleader for the practice of family law and truly enjoy mentoring young attorneys in that direction.”
“I try to be as compassionate as possible yet maintain an air of expertise and professionalism so that I can guide my clients through the unsettled waters of divorce.” Mark encourages his clients to rid themselves of the overwhelming emotional turmoil of the divorcing process and to think intellectually about reaching a resolution through direct negotiations, mediation, or arbitration. “Although I truly enjoy litigating cases, it makes much more sense to reach some compromise and make the decision to cut your losses and move on.” When speaking at conferences and lectures, Mark reviews and teaches the complexities of divorce law. “There are few areas of the law with as many issues, statutes, rules, and cases.” For those who know Mark, they will agree that he is a divorce lawyer who listens, cares, and protects their rights.
