Attorney Wolfenson, the founder and senior partner of the firm, practices in courts throughout North and Central New Jersey. A member of the New Jersey Bar Association, he has lectured for the Graduate Realtor Institute of the New Jersey Association of Realtors, as well as for first-time homebuyers with the Housing Partnership Ownership Center in Dover, New Jersey.

Mr. Wolfenson's zealous advocacy on his client's behalf, and his continuing concern for the rights of non-custodial parents, resulted in a New Jersey appeals court determining a new standard by which a custodial parent is entitled to move throughout the state in the case of A.J. v. R.J., 461 N.J. Super. 173 (App. Div. 2019). Now, the "best interests" of the children must be considered by the court before allowing a custodial parent across the state as opposed to the prior, far more permissive, standard.

Due to his acumen in the varied fields of estates, real estate, and family law, he has been appointed by the Court to serve as the Administrator of numerous contested estates, as well as mediator or fiscal agent.

Awarded the prestigious honor of being named to "Lawyers of Distinction," he has also been named as one of New Jersey's "Top Attorneys for Families" by New Jersey Family Monthly, a recognition earned through the votes of clients for five consecutive years.

In his spare time Attorney Wolfenson, an avid baseball fan, serves as Commissioner of a fantasy baseball league. He is also an author, having published several novels - two of which are legal thrillers - the first work, entitled "In His Own Defense," introduced main character, Elizabeth, NJ-based attorney Eric Goldberg, and focuses on the limitations of the attorney-client privilege while taking the reader from Elizabeth to Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the sequel, "In His Ex-Wife's Defense," Goldberg represents his ex-wife in a case centered around New Jersey's "texting and driving" laws, while the book also examines politics and the interplay between politicians and the media.

The third book, "Deadly Fantasy: A Baseball Story", focuses on one man's obsession/addiction with winning his fantasy baseball league, to the detriment of all others in his life; it also provides the reader with a critical comparison of the current statistic-based views of rating baseball players as opposed to the more traditional, "human" views of player selection.

The founder of the New Jersey Chapter of the Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association, he served as its chair for five years. He previously served as Chairman of the Legal and By-Laws Committee, as well as Executive Committee member, for Adath Shalom Synagogue in Parsippany, and before that served for several years as vice-president and legal counsel for the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
