Sylvia L. Breitowich
After gaining years of valuable experience working for several large law firms in New Jersey, Sylvia Breitowich decided to open her own firm so she could focus more closely on the needs of her clients and provide them with more attentive and personalized service.
A graduate of Rutgers University, Sylvia received her bachelor’s degree in psychology and criminal justice, a minor in sociology and received a Certificate of Criminology. She later went on to receive her Juris Doctorate from Rutgers University School of Law. Sylvia originally planned to focus on criminal defense practice but an internship with a solo practitioner, who handled both criminal defense and family law matters, exposed Sylvia to the complex world of matrimonial and family law and as a result, she changed her focus. She explains, “I loved interacting with people and helping them get through serious issues in their lives. Family law matters are not only legally complex, but very emotional for all parties involved. I feel it is my duty to take the legal burden off of my clients so that they can better focus their attention on themselves and their children. My clients are always confident that I have their back and their best interests in mind when navigating their matter. They are comforted by my abilities and find that they are better able to see the light at the end of the tunnel with me helping to guide the way.” Working in matrimonial and family law also aligned well with Sylvia’s psychology degree.
As the founder and owner of Breitowich Law Firm, LLC, the firm she founded in January 2019, Sylvia concentrates on various matrimonial and family law issues including divorce, custody and support cases, relocation cases, post judgment matters, property division, alimony, adoptions and guardianships. She explains that as the owner of the firm, she can offer her clients the hands-on and devoted service and legal experience that they deserve when dealing with difficult issues in their lives. She is also a qualified mediator and as such, has the skills needed to help bring parties together to reach amicable resolutions without the need for court intervention. She adds that most of her clients come to her at very tough times in their lives and she is happy to be able to help them through these hardships.
As an attorney who is focused on truly understanding the needs of her clients and offering the best possible legal options and services, many clients hire Sylvia because they feel she can relate to them on a personal level, not just a business relationship.
Sylvia has been practicing law for over ten years and in addition to her professional accomplishments she has received several notable awards and recognitions. She has been named a Rising Star Super Lawyer for the past three consecutive years and was nominated by her clients for New Jersey’s Best Lawyers for Families in 2019. This year she was also ranked in the Top 10 under 40 by the National Academy of Family Law Attorneys.
Sylvia is also a member of the Ocean and Monmouth County bar associations, the New Jersey State Bar Association, and was recently appointed to the District IX Ethics Committee.
