Teresa Reichek – NJ Family Law Attorney

“For the past 5 yrs I have been in a custody war with my daughter’s Mother. It has been very difficult to obtain more time with my daughter. After hiring 2 lawyers and getting no where I felt as if I had no rights as a father. I called Weinberger Law Group and I was introduced to Teresa Reichek.
From our first initial meeting she reassured me that she has dealt with these issues in the past with former clients who hired lawyers and failed. She came in with a solid game plan and executed. I would like to say that after my court hearing this past week my life has changed tremendously. Not only did she help me adjust pick up and drop off times for my daughter, we now have a fair parenting schedule and I am able to spend time with her on her birthdays and major holidays. The best part of this is I was granted 8 consecutive weeks in the summer …. I could not help but break down in court because i have been going through this battle for 7 yrs and i finally have the relief I need because of Teresa.
I highly recommend Teresa for all the fathers out there that feel like there is no hope. She’s a bulldog in court and does not take no for an answer. She will get you what you deserve in all fairness.”  Michael C.

Ms. Reichek exclusively concentrates her practice on family and matrimonial matters, including divorce, child custody, asset division, alimony, child support, domestic violence and related family matters. Ms. Reichek is passionate about protecting her clients and understands that each client and each case are unique and require ingenuity and a fresh approach for achieving the best possible outcomes.

Whether dealing with a child support modification or complex litigated divorce, Teresa Reichek uses her legal prowess and dedication to protect and guide her clients through their matters, keeping them completely informed about their rights and options at all times. Ms. Reichek aims to minimize this tension while working diligently to resolve her client’s matter through individualized attention and advice. Ms. Reichek is particularly sensitive to the needs of her clients’ children and helps protect their best interests.

Ms. Reichek will always advocate for low conflict settlement methods whenever possible. Should going before a judge be necessary, Ms. Reichek is a skilled litigator with a consummate reputation for zealously advocating for her clients in court.

Believing that every client deserves equal footing, Ms. Reichek has as extensive history in representing victims of domestic violence. She began her family court experience in New York where she volunteered in both Queens and Suffolk County Courts as a law student assisting victims of domestic violence in their applications for Protective Orders. She continued on this path working in multiple non-profit agencies in Middlesex County, New Jersey where she continued her work in domestic violence trials, dissolution matters and all other areas of family law.

Ms. Reichek then took her skills to Texas, practicing primarily in Travis and Williamson Counties in the Austin suburbs assisting clients with divorces and Orders of Protection as well as volunteering with her local police department as a victim’s advocate.

Teresa Reichek received her Juris Doctorate from Hofstra University’s Maurice A. Deane School of Law where she concentrated in civil litigation and served in the Housing Rights Clinic directing a class action settlement in the U.S District Court for the Eastern District of New York. That experience not only introduced her to the issue of tenant’s rights that can go hand-in-hand with family law cases, but it confirmed her aptitude for litigation work, and her passion for being in a courtroom has continued throughout her career. Ms. Reichek received her Bachelor of Arts from The College of New Jersey (formerly Trenton State College).

Ms. Reichek is admitted to the bars of the State of New Jersey, the New Jersey Federal District Court, and the State of Texas. She resides in Burlington County where she enjoys volunteering with her local Kiwanis Club.
