FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: June 10, 2021
We celebrate our friend and fellow board member, Raquel Vallejo, on her recent promotion to partner at her firm, the Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group. Ms. Vallejo received her Juris Doctorate from Seton Hall University School of Law. While in law school, she was a member of the Seton Hall Center for Social Justice, where she provided legal aid services in the areas of matrimonial and family law to Essex, Morris, and Union County residents. After graduating law school, Ms. Vallejo served as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Thomas P. Zampino J.S.C. in the Essex County Family Part. She has experience with all facets of family law litigation, including complex contested issues of custody, parenting time, child support, alimony, and equitable distribution of assets. She volunteers her time at the Jersey Battered Women’s Shelter through its legal advocacy program, where she represents clients in domestic violence proceedings.
HBA-NJ President, Reynold Lambert, applauded Ms. Vallejo’s achievement, stating: “Raquel is a rockstar in every sense of the word. We have been lucky to have her as a trusted board member and friend for many years, and I know she will excel in her new role.”
