I was just so shocked! And learned so much about what actually occurred in the divorce process.

Absolutely Fabulous

Pat Barbarito has an uncommon ability to connect with people: she is an empathetic listener, a candid and honest advisor, a steady hand and a steely advocate. She is a terrific lawyer because she is a thoughtful and caring person. Her stories — and she has many over the course of a remarkable and still burgeoning career as New Jersey’s finest family lawyer — come poring out. Her freewheeling podcast is an absolute delight.
