Attorney Profile

The founder of her law firm, Pamela M. Cerruti focuses her practice exclusively on family law matters. Based in Montclair, New Jersey, she provides compassionate representation to people throughout the northern part of the state, including Essex, Passaic, Bergen, Union and Morris counties. Ms. Cerruti has been certified in matrimonial law by the Board on Attorney Certification of the Supreme Court of New Jersey. She has been admitted to practice in New Jersey since 1988, and she is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey and the Supreme Court of the United States.

An accomplished athlete, Ms. Cerruti attended Seton Hall University on a basketball scholarship and received a Bachelor of Science in accounting cum laude in 1978. After obtaining a Master of Business Administration cum laude from the same institution, she spent several years in the finance division of a major international company while pursuing her legal education at Seton Hall University School of Law before being awarded her Juris Doctor cum laude in 1988.

A significant portion of Ms. Cerruti’s practice involves her representation of people who are going through a divorce, and she uses her accounting and financial background when dealing with the valuation and division of complex marital assets such as business ownership interests, stock options, and valuable artwork and other holdings. In addition, her experience in mediation and collaborative law often allows her to help her clients come to an accord on those issues as well as on parenting rights and child and spousal support. Ms. Cerruti’s other family law experience has encompassed the assistance of domestic violence victims who are seeking protective orders from the court, and she has worked on cases involving adoptions and artificial reproductive techniques.
