Stark & Stark Shareholder, John S. Eory, Esq., Co-Chair of the firm’s Family Law Group, has been certified as a family law arbitrator by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). “Arbitration is a great courtroom alternative for those litigants who are unable to resolve their cases in mediation” says Lynn P. Burleson, former chair of the Arbitration Committee of the AAML. “It provides litigants with an opportunity for an expedited hearing before an arbitrator who has substantial expertise in matrimonial law and who is willing to set aside the time necessary to hear the evidence and to decide the disputed issues of the case. For a number of reasons and to an increasing degree, that opportunity is not available to litigants in the state trial courts.” (Source) Mr. Eory concentrates his practice on divorce, custody, domestic violence and other family law matters. In 2009, he was selected by the Mercer County Bar Association and the New Jersey Commission on Professionalism in the Law as the “Professional Lawyer of the Year.” He is also a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML) and he has received Certificates of Achievement from the AAML and the Superior Court of New Jersey. Mr. Eory is a member of the Family Law Executive Committee of the New Jersey State Bar Association. He is also a lecturer for the New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education and the New Jersey Association for Justice and has appeared as a speaker on television and radio with regard to family law topics.
