Linda Torosian handles the full range of family law matters including complex litigation involving significant assets, business evaluations, and high conflict custody and visitation issues. Additionally, Linda focuses her practice on the legal needs of the LGBTQ community, including same sex adoptions, and issues related to the dissolution of a same sex marriage. She has been published in The New Jersey Law Journal on family law issues and in Divorce Magazine on the subject of adoption and same-sex marriages.
Prior to attending law school, Linda earned her Ed.S. in Marriage and Family Therapy, as well as her M.A. in Psychological Studies, and spent several years as a family therapist, mental health clinician, and a counselor specializing in family evaluations and recommendations on parental rights and child custody.
Linda’s approach to client service is highly attentive and compassionate. She consistently serves as a strong advocate for her clients, whether in litigation or negotiation. Her ability to draw on her background as a family therapist allows her to provide thoughtful and sensitive insight and work with her clients to reach amicable resolutions to their cases. Linda is a member of NJ-AFCC, an interdisciplinary association of mental health and legal professionals, mediators, and academics dedicated to improving the lives of children and families through the resolution of family conflict.
Due to Linda’s psychology experience and her work as a family lawyer, she is frequently appointed to serve as a Guardian Ad Litem (R. 5:8B) and Counsel for Child (R. 5:8A) to help the courts assess solutions that are in the best interests of the children involved in a family matter. Her background in mental health uniquely positions Linda to carefully investigate a family’s dynamics and make sound recommendations about custody, visitation, and other significant issues.
