David Trombadore is a family law attorney with Weinberger Divorce & Family Law Group. Mr. Trombadore has over twenty-five years of experience assisting clients with their divorce and family law matters, including complex asset division, alimony, contested child custody, special needs trusts, adoption, domestic violence, prenuptial agreements, post-divorce modifications and all other related family law matters.

Mr. Trombadore understands that going through a divorce or family law matter is a difficult process with each client having their own set of unique needs. Mr. Trombadore creates successful outcomes for his clients by listening carefully to their desired outcomes and applying his experience to meet those needs. During what he knows can be an incredibly difficult and pressing time in his clients’ lives, Mr. Trombadore prioritizes attentive and prompt service as the key to helping his clients stay confident and informed from start to finish in their matters.

Throughout his many years of practice, Mr. Trombadore has assisted his clients in high value/high conflict cases, high conflict custody and parenting time matters, and other contested matters resolved through arbitration and trial. However, Mr. Trombadore is also highly skilled in helping his clients avoid expensive litigation by pursuing alternative methods of dispute resolution, such as mediation and collaboration. As a qualified court approved mediator and trained collaborative divorce attorney, Mr. Trombadore will always seek out low conflict methods to resolve his clients matters outside the courtroom whenever possible.

Mr. Trombadore started practicing law in New Jersey in 1995, focusing his practice on family law as well as land use and real estate law, estate planning, and commercial transactions and litigation. Driven by his passion for helping families and individuals going through personal legal matters, Mr. Trombadore ultimately transitioned his practice to exclusively focus on family law.

The breadth and depth of Mr. Trombadore’s background has proven invaluable to his family law clients, including his significant experience with business and finance-related issues that often arise in family law, such as real estate and business valuations, special needs trusts, understanding and interpreting complex financial statements, business and individual tax returns, and dividing and winding down business interests. Mr. Trombadore’s direct experience gives him insight into identifying and resolving issues that often escape less experienced and well-rounded family lawyers.

David Trombadore has been an active member of the bar, both locally and at the state level. He is a past president of the Somerset County Bar Association, and past chair of the New Jersey State Bar’s Judicial Administration and Appellate Practice Committees. He also served for six years on the State Bar’s Judicial and Prosecutorial Appointments Committee, and has served for many years in the Early Settlement Panel program in Somerset County. In addition, Mr. Trombadore was a Founding Member and Master of the District XIII Family Inn of Court. He organized and moderated many of the Inn’s programs designed not only to educate and train new members of the family bar, but also experienced practitioners and judges.

Mr. Trombadore is a graduate of Cornell University School of Law. Prior to practicing family law, Mr. Trombadore spent the first several years of his legal career handling complex commercial litigation in areas including intellectual property, class actions, employment discrimination and products liability. During these years, Mr. Trombadore was licensed and practiced in New York, Colorado and California. He also spent a year in Tokyo representing Fujitsu in a major dispute with IBM.

David Trombadore has lived for many years in Somerset County where he enjoys listening to his 12 year old son play the piano and watching his 9 year old play soccer.
