Our laws are constantly changing to keep up with our evolving society. Laws that were in place yesterday may not apply to advances we make tomorrow. In order to help you keep current on federal, State and local laws and how they may apply to you, our Firm publishes two blogs – the Personal Injury Blog and the Family Law Blog – highlighting the recent changes and current events that affect our laws.

Personal Injury Blog

Personal Injury Law is a broad topic covering such areas as motor vehicle accidents and the factors that may cause them; construction accidents and workplace mishaps; defective products and their recalls; nursing home injuries and how to protect loved ones from elder abuse; slip-and-fall accidents; burn injuries; and other events that could result in injury due to the carelessness or recklessness of another individual or, in some cases, a business. 

At other times, our Personal Injury Blog will focus on stories about current lawsuits and their outcomes explaining how courts look at responsibilities and how certain specifics of the law, such as statutes of limitation, can affect the courts’ final decisions.

DUI / DWI / and Distracted Driving

Some weeks our Personal Injury Blog post serves as a reminder to avoid reckless behaviors, such as drinking and driving or distracted driving. We bring your attention to stories about local law enforcement agencies’ periodic efforts to crack down on these behaviors, as well as statistics on the rate of fatal car accidents and the factors contributing to them. Our blogs will also cover motor vehicle defects and how they can contribute to your risk of an accident.

Product Recalls

Kearns Rotolo Law also reports on recalls of other common household products such as cell phones, automobiles, and baby and child products including car seats, highchairs, cribs, bike helmets, and even baby powder to alert you to their potential dangers.

Family Law Blog

Family Law is another expansive area of law that encompasses many aspects of personal relationships including divorce, child custody, property distribution, and prenuptial agreements. Sometimes in these relationships problems arise that are beyond our capacity to resolve on our own. That’s when you need experienced and knowledgeable counsel to help guide you to a resolution that is fair and protects your interests.


Family Law issues can be highly emotional. These emotions can cloud our judgment and cause us to overlook important matters that can adversely affect us later. This is particularly true with divorce. Couples focused on ending their marital relationship may miss an important financial matter that can prove costly in the long run. Our Family Law Blog has covered such topics as financial mistakes to avoid when divorcing, how divorce affects spousal Social Security benefits, why it matters who files for divorce first, and how divorce can affect your tax filing status. While these issues may not be first in your mind as you go through your divorce proceedings, they can make a difference in your financial well-being following your divorce.

Child Custody and Visitation

While divorce puts an end to marital relationship between husband and wife, it does not put an end to other family relationships, specifically the parent-child relationship. In New Jersey, the ‘Best Interest of the Child’ is a principle applied to most issues dealing with children of divorce. This principle can influence court decisions involving child custody and visitation and even grandparents’ rights. Our Family Law Blog often illustrates how this principle applies in such matters as: how co-parenting arrangements work; what unique considerations need to be given to special needs children of divorce; how your approach to your divorce can affect your parenting partnership; what custody issues are unique to non-traditional families; and what the consequences are for neglecting the terms of your child custody agreement.

Family Law Reform in New Jersey

In recent years, New Jersey has seen many changes in the area of Family Law, most notably alimony reform and the passage of the Marriage Equality Bill. Our Family Law Blog covers such changes extensively with the goal of keeping readers informed of both the changes and their aftermaths.

Our Personal Injury Blog and Family Law Blog are intended to both inform and broaden the readers understanding of nuances and revisions of current laws. They are in no way intended as legal advice. Every situation is unique and you should consult with an attorney qualified in the appropriate area of law about the specifics of your individual case.

The Personal Injury Blog and Family Law Blog are provided as a public service by Kearns Rotolo Law. While the articles contained within these blogs focus on legal issues pertinent to Personal Injury and Family Law matters, they are not intended as legal advice or representation. Although we take every step to provide current and truthful information, the constantly changing nature of law and our dependence upon outside sources preclude us from offering any guarantee or warranty on the reliability or accuracy of the information presented.

What Our Clients are Saying

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships. He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

- Matthew

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
