Experienced Family Law Trial Counsel

Ms. Cortino’s advocacy skills earned her recognition in law school and as a practicing attorney. She is quick to think on her feet, knows the relevant law like the back of her hand, and effectively advocates for her clients before State trial and appellate courts, and before administrative agencies (i.e., Child Protective Services, Local Child Support Agencies, etc.)

In trial, she takes a persuasive approach of presenting relevant and effective evidence for the court’s consideration. Unlike some attorneys, who are easily riled and make personal attacks, Ms. Cortino’s credibility as an advocate is due to her preparation of the case and using the most persuasive evidence to get the best possible result for her clients.
