About this firm

McCarthy McDonald Schulberg and Joy is a law firm dedicated to providing advice and representation in family law cases. Our attorneys deal exclusively with cases involving divorce, custody, support, equitable distribution, alimony, counsel fees and expenses, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, adoption and some types of juvenile court matters. All of our senior partners have practiced law for over 30 years, other partners for more than 10 years, and our associates and paralegals have extensive experience in handling all types of family law matters.

We provide to our clients the best service possible by having an excellent staff to assist us in this process. Your personal attorney will be responsible for all work done in your case, and will usually handle all substantive court appearances, negotiations, and strategy decisions. However, it is our practice to have routine matters handled by the paralegal or attorney who can best do the work at the least cost. We are well aware of the expense associated with this process and work with you to keep your legal fees as reasonable as possible, while providing you with the highest quality representation available. It is our experience that this approach assures you prompt, effective representation during what can be a stressful process.

Any kind of family law matter can be upsetting or frustrating. We are aware of the fact that there is a very personal component to the problem you are requesting us to assist you in resolving. However, we also know that the court is primarily interested in objective data. Therefore, we work to help you understand what will be most effective in persuading a court to accomplish your goals.

We know that in many situations involving family litigation, at the end no party feels like he or she has won. This is common, as the divorce process is often a difficult experience. What we do is assist you in understanding each step of the process, evaluating all of your alternatives (including the cost of each), and deciding what is best for you, your children, your financial assets, and your case. At all times, we zealously represent your position to the other side and to the court. In doing this, we will always give you our best advice and judgment on each matter that comes before us. Sometimes this will be very blunt advice as to how a court will view your position, which might not be favorable. We view that as part of our job in helping you to understand the process, and getting the best result that we can for you.

The process of resolving any family law issue can be time-consuming. There are many reasons for this. Depending on the issue involved, there can be a number of different kinds of court appearances. Our goal is to zealously represent you through all the various parts, while remembering that there is a global issue always at hand-the personal and financial best interests of you and your children.

We recommend that you make an appointment to consult with one of our attorneys to discuss your case. This will provide you with the opportunity to obtain some insight into how the legal process works, and to determine if our approach to representation meets your needs.
