About Tanya N. Helfand, Esq.
With 29 years of legal experience, Ms. Helfand focuses her practice in the area of Family Law. She is licensed to practice in New Jersey and New York. Ms. Helfand is a Certified Matrimonial Attorney for the State of New Jersey and on the Superior Court’s Matrimonial Early Settlement Panel in Morris County and Essex County. She is also referred by the courts as an economic mediator. She is passionate about helping people “get out of pain in their relationship” and help the family resolve matters practically. She has successfully represented both men and women with complex custody and financial matters through negotiation as well as trial through conclusion.
