Our History

Our principal lawyer, Joe Nitti, established the firm in 1986 by joining with his father, attorney Luke T. Nitti, who practiced law from 1959 until he passed away. Attorney Theresa “Terri” Nitti joined the firm in 1994 and now serves as a partner. Our firm also includes our Associate Attorney, Harrison Hess, Esq., who joined the firm in 2020, and our paralegals Diana Peyton and Katie D’Argenio.

Our legal team works both hard and smart. We do not pursue unnecessary legal avenues, and we leave you in the driver’s seat when it comes to making important decisions about the direction of your case. Aided by our extensive legal training and experience, we help our clients make informed decisions about important matters than can affect them for the rest of their lives.

What Sets Our NJ Family Law Firm Apart?

Here are just a few aspects that make our NJ family law practice stronger:

  • Service – As an established, family-run law firm serving Essex County NJ and surrounding areas in New Jersey, we thrive on providing personal service to the clients who know us and who return to us year after year. Retain our services for your legal matter and you will deal with an experienced and dedicated lawyer who possesses a detailed understanding of the NJ legal system. You will never be handed off to an associate with limited experience.
  • Experience – The Nitti family has practiced law locally for decades. We keep our skills sharp through continual professional development. Moreover, while we are experienced trial lawyers who will fight for your interests in court, we are also experienced negotiators who can work to meet your goals outside of the courtroom and with a minimum of legal expense.
  • Compassion – Not only do the Nittis have an intimate understanding of New Jersey law and the local and state courts, but they also understand their community. Terri and Joe have three children, live locally, and have the experience and compassion necessary to handle sensitive family legal issues. We understand that while we may deal with legal issues every day, our clients do not. We strive to see our clients’ situations as our own — and then respond accordingly.
  • Integrity – This might sound obvious, but it is vitally important that attorneys treat each client’s case as if it can be won. “Winning” can mean many things, depending on the individual. To us, winning means that the results we obtain are favorable to our client. As an independent and family-run law firm, we take each client seriously and we always pursue their cases to the fullest extent of our abilities, whether a solution is obtained in court following mediation, through a verdict or judgment, or during out-of-court negotiations.
