Anna–Maria Pittella is a family law attorney with over forty years of experience. She will no longer litigate a divorce because of the toll it takes on a family emotionally and financially. She is an Accredited Professional Mediator since 1997, a Court Approved Roster Economic Mediator since the program began and family collaborative attorney since 2004. She offers her skills in the resolution of family matters by mediation and collaboration. Nether process takes place at the courthouse but in a comfortable office setting confidentially and supportive, providing guidance in decisions for the family’s transition to two households. She continually seeks and attends educational events to deepen her skills, is a speaker on mediation, collaborative process and practice as well as a trainer in the family collaborative process. She is one of the initiators of the family collaborative law movement in New Jersey that culminated in the passage of the New Jersey Family Collaborative Act on Dec. 10 2014.
