Skoloff & Wolfe is pleased to announce that Thomas J. DeCataldo was named to Morris Essex Health & Life’s 2021 Top Lawyers list in Essex County, New Jersey in the practice area of Family Law. The eleven Family Law attorneys selected are proven industry leaders who uphold Family Law’s integrity and deliver positive client outcomes in Essex County. This is Mr. DeCataldo’s second inclusion on the list.

Mr. DeCataldo began his career as a law clerk for the Honorable Thomas M. McCormack J.S.C and assisted with Family Law matters in Essex County. Since then, he has represented high-profile clients from professional athletes to business executives in matters involving child custody and support, spousal support, equitable distribution, appellate practice, palimony, domestic violence, business valuations, and the negotiation and drafting of settlement agreements, among many other family law issues.

In addition to Mr. DeCataldo’s representation of clients, he regularly acts as a mediator to assist family law litigants in resolving disputes outside the court system. His long-standing focus is to provide thoughtful advice in the best interest of his client and their families. 

“Issues regarding family law can be very complex. Due to the close relationship, there can be higher sensitivities that make it difficult to find an amicable solution. I’m honored to be recognized again by Morris Essex Health & Life magazine for the work that I do in my practice area,” says Thomas DeCataldo.

Mr. DeCataldo is a mentor and thought leader, frequently called upon by colleagues and universities for his expertise. In recent years, Mr. DeCataldo has delivered lectures discussing several aspects of family law for colleagues, judges, and other expert witnesses. He has also lectured to numerous in-house legal departments of large businesses headquartered in New Jersey to train their staff attorneys in family law.

“For our clients with significant wealth, family law matters can intertwine with their businesses and be extremely complex. Tom stays up to date with what is relevant to deliver clients the best current and appropriate solution. I’m very happy for him; the recognition is well deserved,” says Jonathan Wolfe, co-managing partner and head of the Family Law practice area at Skoloff & Wolfe.
