Jeralyn Lawrence started her career at one of New Jersey’s largest and most prestigious law firms, Norris McLaughlin in 1996. After working her way through the ranks of Norris McLaughlin, from new associate and protégé of the firm’s well-known founding partner, Richard A. (“Dick”) Norris to partnership, to Chair of the firm’s Matrimonial & Family Law Department and a Member of the firm’s Management Committee, Jeralyn decided to fulfill her greatest aspiration, to open and build her own law practice dedicated to family law and guiding clients through the issues related to family law.
Lawrence Law is built of the foundation of several principles all of which are focused on the needs of the firm’s clients:
To continue providing the top-notch service she is known for at Lawrence Law, Jeralyn has brought a team of other lawyers, paralegals and professional support staff who share her values and principles. 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, and phone calls will be 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 emotional and trying times 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 many clients are repeat clients. The best compliment to an attorney is knowing that those who have used your services recommend you to friends and family.
Besides having satisfied clients, Jeralyn has received awards and accolades from others in the legal, business, academic and political communities, including:
