Attorney Profile

Melissa M. Willem is the attorney behind the law firm of Willem Law, LLC, in Manahawkin, New Jersey. Since the law firm's inception, she has dedicated her time and resources to help families navigate complex legal issues. As a child of divorced parents, she understands the psychological and financial impacts a legal issue can have on a family. She derives great pleasure in representing clients in matters involving: 

·       Divorce

·       Child custody and support

·       Spousal maintenance/alimony

·       Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements

·       Domestic violence and restraining orders

·       Adoptions

Consequently, residential real estate and estate planning make up a portion of Ms. Willem’s workload. Before starting her own firm, she worked at a well-known New Jersey law firm for over eight years and gained extensive experience in real estate litigation, municipal court cases and estate planning matters along with family law.

A magna cum laude graduate of Kean University, Ms. Willem earned her Bachelor of Science degree in political science in 2007. She pursued her passion for law by enrolling at Rutgers Law School. She obtained her Juris Doctor degree in 2010 and was admitted to practice in all the state courts of New Jersey the same year. She served as a judicial clerk for Judge E. David Millard.

Along with maintaining a prospering legal practice, Ms. Willem stays actively involved in her community through her memberships in the American Bar Association Family Law and Real Estate Sections, the New Jersey State Bar Association and the Ocean County Bar Association Family Law Committee.
