Archer Partner, Kathleen P. Stockton, was recently designated as a Certified Matrimonial Law Attorney by the New Jersey Supreme Court. The New Jersey Supreme Court’s Board on Attorney Certification administers the State’s program for certifying lawyers. Becoming a certified attorney is an exceptional achievement. Only 2% of attorneys in the State are certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Ms. Stockton earned this designation by meeting established and tough standards and criteria. These include undergoing comprehensive and rigorous testing, demonstrating extensive matrimonial trial experience and proficiency, as well as fulfilling ongoing continuing legal education requirements. Certified attorneys must also achieve their status by way of a recommendation from fellow colleagues and New Jersey Superior Court judges, together with having been a member in good standing of the New Jersey Bar for at least five years.
Ms. Stockton concentrates her practice in all areas of family law, and has significant expertise in divorce, custody, child support, domestic violence, pre-nuptial and adoption matters. She has been a family law practitioner in New Jersey for almost 20 years and has successfully handled countless cases through trial litigation, obtaining favorable results for her clients. In 2008, Ms. Stockton was the first female in Archer’s Family and Matrimonial Department to be elected to Partner.
