August 03, 2015

Jan Bernstein, Chair of The Family Law Practice Group, and Jennifer Lazor are quoted in an article entitled: “Gay Marriage Ruling Not a Clear Windfall for Lawyers.” Ms. Bernstein stated, “I don’t think it’s going to be any more business per se for family lawyers… It’s total speculation … saying that this may provide more work…    Obergefelle  … was ‘monumental’ but ‘from the perspective of business of law for family lawyers in New Jersey, it is not going to have a monumental effect.”   Ms.  Lazor added on the topic of “family,” “…other areas of law – such as surrogacy – need to catch up with marriage equality.”
