She is the best! I send everyone to her!

She got everything my husband wanted from parenting time down to the correct statements in court we didn't know about.. Also a warrant we didn't know about and don't understand how she helped with that too.. I will go to her for everything.

Get to Know Lakisha N. Dean, Esq.

Before I begin to tell you about my academic awards and achievements, I want to take a moment to tell you that I've stood in your shoes.  

I truly appreciate how intimidating the legal process can be to clients who are fighting to protect their interests, and those of their children. 


As a witness to domestic violence and the child of a broken home, I know all too well the emotional and physical journey to create a new vision for your life.

"Although I have some apprehension about the Judicial System in the U.S., Attorney Lakisha Dean's law firm has prepared me to navigate the NJ Family Court System with confidence.  I believe that she, and her team, has handled the matters relevant to my family with proper care and responsibility.  The firm is very communicative and punctual.  My concerns were always at ease when working with them.  Attorney Dean's experience with the NJ Family Court System was always on exhibit and has allowed her to make the best recommendation for my family.  I would refer Attorney Dean to any family that is seeking legal counsel in order to, legally, resolve family matters."

Why I Chose Family Law

I was drawn into Family law because of my own personal circumstances. 

My three month old nephew was placed up for adoption without my brother's consent. He was placed with a family in Canada before we even knew he was missing.  My entire family was devastated and didn't have a clue about what to do next.  

As the only attorney in the family, everyone looked to me for answers. I had never touched a family law case before except for a clinic in law school.  

This time, there was so much at stake.  

Needless to say, I was scared to lose him and knew I had to do whatever I could.  

I started in Family Court in NY and worked my way to Canada to pick him up almost three months later!  

Although, it was probably the scariest thing I have every done, it was by far the most rewarding. This helped me realize that my potential is so much greater than my fears.  

Every time I look at my nephew, I am reminded at how blessed I am to have been able to earn a law degree to help others.
This personal story of triumph is what fuels my passion to be a compassionate legal advocate. One who strives for a holistic solution to the situation, rather than just a legal one.

Here is What My  Clients Have to Say
