With offices in Watchung, in the heart of Somerset County,
and Red Bank, Monmouth County, Lawrence Law, a divorce law firm, founded by
Jeralyn Lawrence, is built on the foundation of several principles, all of
which are focused on the needs of the firm’s divorce and family law clients:
To provide the top-notch service for which she is known,
Jeralyn has a team of lawyers, paralegals and professional support staff who
share her values. She has worked with this group for many years, building
comradery and trust not seen at many other law firms. The result of this team
approach is the client experience – a tailored plan executed based upon the
strategic goals of the client, one that never loses focus of what the client is
going through. Clients can count on each matter being staffed to provide value
for the client, our professionals being easily accessible, where phone calls
and emails are returned in a timely fashion, and the comfort of having the
hardest working team on your side.
Jeralyn’s approach in providing a positive client experience,
even during the emotional and trying times of divorce, has proved to be a
successful model, as many of Lawrence Law’s new clients are referred to the
firm by existing and former clients, and clients return when other family law
issues arise. A great compliment to any
attorney is knowing that those who have used your services recommend you to
friends and family. Even better, is when
an adversary that you have faced recommends you to others. These are all common occurrences at Lawrence

clients through the issues related to family law.
