At the law offices of Wolfenson & Ashkenazi, P.C., with offices in Union and Cedar Knolls, we offer small-firm attention with the full range of services normally found in large law practices. We work hard to make you feel at ease, placing a premium on our ongoing relationship with you. We focus our efforts on finding pragmatic solutions to family law, litigation, and estate matters.

Attorney Wolfenson, the founder and senior partner of the firm, practices in courts throughout North and Central New Jersey. A member of the New Jersey Bar Association, he has lectured for the Graduate Realtor Institute of the New Jersey Association of Realtors, as well as for first-time homebuyers with the Housing Partnership Ownership Center in Dover, New Jersey.

Mr. Wolfenson's zealous advocacy on his client's behalf, and his continuing concern for the rights of non-custodial parents, resulted in a New Jersey appeals court determining a new standard by which a custodial parent is entitled to move throughout the state in the case of A.J. v. R.J., 461 N.J. Super. 173 (App. Div. 2019). Now, the "best interests" of the children must be considered by the court before allowing a custodial parent across the state as opposed to the prior, far more permissive, standard.

Due to his acumen in the varied fields of estates, real estate, and family law, he has been appointed by the Court to serve as the Administrator of numerous contested estates, as well as mediator or fiscal agent.

Awarded the prestigious honor of being named to "Lawyers of Distinction," he has also been named as one of New Jersey's "Top Attorneys for Families" by New Jersey Family Monthly, a recognition earned through the votes of clients for five consecutive years.

In his spare time Attorney Wolfenson, an avid baseball fan, serves as Commissioner of a fantasy baseball league. He is also an author, having published several novels - two of which are legal thrillers - the first work, entitled "In His Own Defense," introduced main character, Elizabeth, NJ-based attorney Eric Goldberg, and focuses on the limitations of the attorney-client privilege while taking the reader from Elizabeth to Sao Paulo, Brazil. In the sequel, "In His Ex-Wife's Defense," Goldberg represents his ex-wife in a case centered around New Jersey's "texting and driving" laws, while the book also examines politics and the interplay between politicians and the media.

The third book, "Deadly Fantasy: A Baseball Story", focuses on one man's obsession/addiction with winning his fantasy baseball league, to the detriment of all others in his life; it also provides the reader with a critical comparison of the current statistic-based views of rating baseball players as opposed to the more traditional, "human" views of player selection.

The founder of the New Jersey Chapter of the Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association, he served as its chair for five years. He previously served as Chairman of the Legal and By-Laws Committee, as well as Executive Committee member, for Adath Shalom Synagogue in Parsippany, and before that served for several years as vice-president and legal counsel for the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce.
