For more that two decades Cary Cheifetz has been one of New Jersey's leading divorce lawyers, having built an outstanding reputation for professionalism, integrity and effective representation. Peers say Cheifetz, now in his mid 50s, leads the profession for all the right reasons: excellent judgment, proven trial skills and a prodigious work ethic. He handles some of the highest stakes and most complex cases in the state today. His firm, Ceconi & Cheifetz, has four partners, four associates and one counsel. Based in Summit, Ceconi & Cheifetz has been well known in Essex County and Northern New Jersey since Cheifetz joined partner Lizanne J. Ciconi ten years ago. Prior to 1999, Cheiftez enjoyed a long and successful practice with the Livingston-based firm Skoloff & Wolfe. He entered the field following a clerkship with a matrimonial court judge after graduating from law school. "That experience, quite simply, taught me that in divorce law I could help people and positively effect their lives, in a way that I could not in other disciplines of the law." Cheifetz lives in Morris County, New Jersey.
