Over the past 15 years of working exclusively with divorcing clients, I have learned how to read the needs of the people who walk into my office.

Ms. Newman's practice consists of litigation, collaborative law and mediation with a focus on complex high net worth matrimonial cases and negotiating prenuptial agreements.

“Over the past 15 years of working exclusively with divorcing clients, I have learned how to read the needs of the people who walk into my office. Some clients want to know about every detail of their case. Other clients want to hand off more responsibility to me and only want to know the significant points. Being a good matrimonial attorney is about handling this very difficult time in a people's lives in whichever manner works best for them and helping each client get through this process with as little emotional and financial damage as possible,” said Jacqueline Newman, partner at Berkman Bottger Newman & Rodd, LLP.
