Overview

Jennifer Varadi focuses her entire legal practice on family matters, including but not limited to, high net worth divorces, child custody and child support matters. Additionally, she has valuable experience in complex property issues and preparing premarital agreements and post-marital agreements, which help her clients determine their rights regarding property and support when the marriage ends by death or divorce. She is adept at litigation, but as a certified and experienced mediator, her approach is to resolve cases using the best strategies possible and she understands that the best results may be reached without stepping into a courtroom, including child custody arrangements personalized to the individual family and a division of assets and liabilities that set the client on a path for future success.

As a family law attorney, Jennifer takes pride in building trusting connections with her clients and takes a personalized approach. As a creative problem solver, she strives to help families resolve their disputes, big or small; working with the parties to determine what best meets their needs and will fit into their lives. She explains that she is tough when she needs to be but there is more than one way to litigate a case; and, there are other concerns to consider during a case, including cost efficiency, reducing the emotional distress of divorce on the parties, the need for privacy, and most importantly the effects of protracted litigation on children.
