A divorce proceeding is one of the most difficult and emotional legal situations a person will face. Whether you are initiating the divorce or your spouse already has, you will need a competent and experienced attorney to develop legal strategies and a plan to get through this trying time.

Kearns Rotolo Law is comprised of an experienced group of divorce attorneys who know and understand the legal system. The Firm is led by Anthony Kearns, former Hunterdon County Prosecutor, and Victor Rotolo, a former police officer - who fight hard to protect the rights of their clients and to achieve the results they deserve.

Serious Issues

Choosing the right divorce lawyer can make an enormous difference in the outcome of your divorce. Divorce matters involve serious issues of a very personal nature. In a divorce proceeding, your assets, future and family may be at stake. The decisions required in these types of cases may impact how you live your life or how you interact with your children. Without the right legal representation, you can lose a significant portion of your possessions and savings, precious months and years with your children, and it could even threaten your future ability to take care of yourself. Issues of Alimony, Prenuptial Agreements, Child Custody and asset allocation could all turn against you if you do not have a divorce attorney who understands how to manage a divorce proceeding.


Divorce matters often contain contentious issues that can quickly degenerate into bitter situations if not handled competently by an attorney who understands the law and workings of the court system. You and your spouse may be in complete agreement, involved in a contentious disagreement, or somewhere in between. Our attorneys help you find the most efficient and cost effective path to a resolution of all issues.

Divorce often has a broad range of consequences that clients often initially fail to consider. Issues such as what constitutes marital and non-marital property and marital debt as well as the implications of divorce on family-owned or closely held businesses need to be resolved as part of any divorce proceeding. In addition, child issues are central to divorce proceedings. Child support, child custody, co-parenting, visitation and allocation of college costs are extremely sensitive and emotional issues that need to be resolved with the best interests of the child as the primary goal.

A quality divorce settlement generally does not happen overnight. Dealing with divorce courts, protecting assets, resolving custody issues and devising an equitable distribution of marital assets take time. However, Kearns Rotolo Law will guard against excessive litigation related to divorce settlements. While it is possible to litigate every aspect of a divorce case, we believe in protecting our clients from excessive litigation that will have little financial reward.

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!
