Kingston, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/14/2019 -- Hanan M. Isaacs, PC, has added two partners and rebranded to be Kingston Law Group. Attorneys Misty Avallone and Tabitha Clark are the firm's new partners.
Founding partner Hanan Isaacs said the move is something he's been contemplating for a long time. Business growth and its expanding role in the community drove the decision, along with the intellectual contributions of both lawyers.
"Kingston is a vibrant, growing place. Having people associate us positively with Kingston brings benefits to the firm," he said. "Kingston Law Group tells people we are committed to the community and will be here for the long term."
The decision to make Ms. Avallone and Ms. Clark partners in the firm was spurred by the firm's growth and what these seasoned professionals bring to the law firm. Isaacs said the new partners have strengths that build on core areas of practice and complement his own areas of expertise.
"Family law is a growing area of legal practice everywhere. To meet the needs and demands of the public, we must make sure we are well-versed in current New Jersey family law, legislatively and judicially," said Ms. Avallone. "I'm delighted Hanan was looking for my work as a family and divorce lawyer when he decided to expand the practice. I look forward to helping the people of Kingston and surrounding communities," she said.
Ms. Clark brings experience in employment and business law to the firm's repertoire, as well as deep interest in trusts and estates and Elderlaw.
"It is such a great feeling to be able to help people achieve their financial goals. Being able to guide someone through New Jersey law and federal law is something I really enjoy," she said. "I am thrilled that my skill set is something the Kingston Law Group needed. I look forward to making positive contributions to the Kingston community as a partner in the firm. Partnership is quite an honor."
Kingston Law Group focuses on family and divorce law, employment law, general civil and criminal defense, insurance bad faith claims, serious personal injury cases, trusts and estates, and Elderlaw.
Mr. Isaacs is a professional mediator and arbitrator with experience as a negotiator and trial lawyer. Ms. Avallone specializes in family law. Ms. Clark concentrates on trusts and estates as well as employment and business law.
"We've changed the name and added partners. Our clients can expect even better service now," Mr. Isaacs said. "We are growing to meet the needs of the community. Our focus was and always will be delivering prompt and quality services at reasonable rates."
About Kingston Law Group
In 1981, Hanan M. Isaacs created a Central Jersey law partnership with Robert A. Felmeister. The firm was known as Felmeister& Isaacs. From their newly minted law offices In East Windsor, Mercer County, these two young lawyers were hellbent on creating an immediate commercial following. They took an aggressive stance on their first amendment right to advertise their legal services, including on the radio, a right the New Jersey Supreme Court was slow to recognize and support. Their stance produced a 4-year tussle with the Supreme Court, resulting in multiple hearings in state and federal court and two changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct, including the current Rule permitting most forms of advertising.
In 1988, Felmeister departed the firm to start a different career, and Isaacs constructed a sole practice focusing on family and divorce (in which he is a Certified Family Law Practitioner), employment law for workers, personal injury, insurance bad faith, and general civil and criminal defense practice. He also is an expert in negotiations, mediation, and arbitration of cases, whether as a neutral or a lawyer representing a party in those venues.
From 1998 to 2018, Mr. Isaacs hired paralegals and law associates to handle the firm's work. He taught dispute resolution at Seton Hall Law School and Rider University, taught lawyers and judges the art and craft of negotiations and mediation, served as a Mediation Trainer and lecturer for the NJ Institute of Continuing Legal Education and NJ Association of Professional Mediators (NJAPM), published many articles on divorce, family law, and Alternative Dispute Resolution, and served in leadership roles at the State Bar Association, on Supreme Court Committees, and at NJAPM. He also served for many years on successive Zoning Boards of Adjustment (in Montgomery Township and Princeton), and on his Homeowners Association Board.
In 2018, Mr. Isaacs formed a law partnership with Misty V. Avallone, Esq., a long-time associate of the firm, who focuses on matrimonial law practice, along with Tabitha Y. Clark, Esq., who focuses on trusts and estates, Elderlaw, and support for Ms. Avallone's and Mr. Isaacs's divorce and employment law cases. Ms. Clark also serves as the law firm's Chief Technical Officer.
