Only 2% of divorces go to trial; 98% settle before they go to trial. It is how they settle that really matters. Why begin with the traditional adversarial approach that racks up fees and disrupts families when there’s another way? There are fair-minded, alternative approaches that settle your divorce with integrity, compassion, and put your needs and those of any children in the forefront.

Often referred to as a way to divorce with dignity, the collaborative divorce process involves a pledge not to go to court, an honest exchange of information, more control over the outcome, and a settlement based on what is best for you and your family.

Divorce mediation involves retaining a neutral & trained mediator to serve as a facilitator to assist you in reaching a settlement of your areas of difference in a safe and amicable setting.

In those cases in which mediation, collaborative divorce, or other alternative means of dispute resolution are not viable alternatives, spouses will litigate their divorce in the traditional manner. Typically, each will retain a lawyer to represent him/her and communication will occur between the attorneys by letter, phone or e-mail, with the threat of trial if settlement is not achieved. After months of litigation, sometimes years, less than 2% actually got to trial; most settle.

★★★★★ My ex-wife and I retained Gary to assist our divorce negotiations. It was the best decision we made in the divorce process. Gary was attentive, available and at all times fair and knowledgeable. He helped us arrive at a fair settlement, saving us thousands of dollars in legal fees, had we litigated. I recommend Gary without reservation.

★★★★★ Bruce is very good. He did a wonderful job with mediation between my wife and I. Very glad he was available. He helped us come to an agreeable end.

Paul via Avvo

★★★★★ I hired Bruce Matez on two occasions over the last several years. The first was a contentious divorce and then, when I was faced with alimony renegotiations a few years later, I was confident calling Bruce again. He handled both situations very professionally -- he carefully explained options to me, provided his expert opinion, but did not pressure me in any direction. His firm is efficient and very responsive to clients' needs. I am grateful I had him in my corner during those difficult times.

★★★★★ Through the entire process, I was always confident that I had the best lawyer in the room. Gary was always well prepared and knew the law down to every last detail. I highly recommend him to anyone going through divorce in New Jersey.

Lee McGill

Thank you for everything Peter, I appreciate your professionalism and sense of humor. You made a hard situation much easier for me!

Barbara Bodansky

Deena, you're a genius! You're awesome!


★★★★★ I had an extremely long and contentious divorce. Mr. Matez did a superior job helping me navigate the waters and ultimately end with a favorable outcome. I would highly recommend this firm for your divorce needs!


★★★★★ Boy am I thankful for Mary Cay Trace! When subsequent post-divorce issues arose, and my original divorce lawyer no longer practicing, Mary Cay seamlessly and expertly handled things as if she were there from the beginning. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and efficient, and confidently knows how to obtain appropriate and fair outcomes. Mary Cay has a stellar, detail-oriented paralegal, Kathi, who has gone above and beyond walking me through legal territory the past couple of years as various things crop up. I give this team my highest recommendation!

Carrie Nocentino

★★★★★ I am very fortunate to have had Gary Borger as my attorney. Gary was extremely knowledgeable and proficient in handling all aspects of my case which included the issues of child support, custody, parenting time, and alimony, as well as sorting through complex financials, a closely held business, coordination with a forensic accountant, and tax related manners which became significant. During the most emotional times, Gary facilitated a sense of calm and rationality which helped me to focus on the end result I was seeking. He treated me in a respectful, dignified and non-judgmental manner. He exemplified the highest ethical standards and I highly recommend him to handle your case.


★★★★★ Peter Halden, his paralegal Kim and his entire team are excellent. I have been working with Peter on my continuous divorce litigation for many years. He, along with his team, are very professional, thorough, detail oriented, caring ,considerate and have always kept me well informed. I cannot thank him enough for all his help. I would highly recommend him and his firm.

Lynne Nicgorski

★★★★★ I am truly appreciative of Mr. Matez's approach and obvious expertise in mediation. Additionally, Mr. Matez had everything formalized and to both of our attorneys in mere hours. I highly recommend Mr. Matez!


★★★★★ Mr. Peter Halden become our primary attorney. His insight in the concepts and issues provided us with our ability to come to an excellent solution that helped all participants. He listened and always knew what paths to take and when. We cannot thank him and his firm enough with regards to our case.


★★★★★ Bruce was very helpful in my mediation. He has very calming affect during emotional episodes. He also has great handle for common sense solution


★★★★★ What a pleasure it has been to work with Deena Betze & staff!! Let’s be honest, if you are looking for an attorney then 9 times out of 10 you are already going through hard times. Adding to your situation by hiring an attorney based on price or convenience shouldn't be your solution. A good friend of mine highly recommended Deena to me, he was in a similar family court situation and enthusiastically told me how she helped him. What I love about Deena is reading her credentials is impressive but when you meet her it’s clear how much knowledge and expertise she has with Family Court.

Cherene Petruzzelli

★★★★★ I have known May Cay Trace for more than 18 years and she has always been professional, capable and responsive. She has broad experience in virtually all matters of divorce law, and at this point in her career has a solid reputation as both a litigator of divorce matters and as an out-of-court mediator. She's level headed and pragmatic, and well respected by her peers in the profession.
