Attorney Profile

Rachel S. Cotrino is an attorney in private practice in Jackson, New Jersey, where she focuses her practice on matrimonial law and related matters, including divorce, asset and debt division, child custody and support, spousal support, domestic violence, paternity issues, prenuptial agreements, agreement modification, relocation and visitation. Ms. Cotrino understands the delicate and emotional nature of such cases and strives to help her clients through the difficult process with empathy and vigorous representation.

As the sole attorney at The Law Office of Rachel S. Cotrino, LLC, Ms. Cotrino serves clients in Ocean, Monmouth, Mercer, Middlesex, and Burlington Counties. In addition to the time she devotes to her busy practice, she shares her deep knowledge and experience through her own family law-oriented blog.

Before opening her own practice, Ms. Cotrino was an associate attorney with Gertner Mandel & Peslak, LLC. Prior to that, she clerked for Superior Court Judge James M. Blaney of Ocean County. In that role, she prepared tentative decisions and orders for family law cases and also mediated disputes in the court's Special Civil Part. During this time, she developed her abiding interest in helping families through marriage dissolution, and she draws from the skills she acquired there to aggressively represent her clients in all aspects of matrimonial law.

After graduating from the State University of New York at Binghamton with a B.A. in political science in 2004, Ms. Cotrino earned her J.D. from Vermont Law School in 2007.
