Thirty-eight years ago, Pat Barbarito started her law career at Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost when it only had three attorneys. Since that time, she has been integral in developing the firm into the powerhouse it is today. From the start, Pat’s passion and compassion set her apart from other lawyers and are the reasons why she is among the most sought after family law attorneys in the state. A highly regarded trial lawyer known for her integrity and commitment to excellence, Pat has a formidable reputation in every courtroom in New Jersey. Her hallmark is taking the time to gain a deep understanding of her clients’ situations so that she can swiftly and effectively develop a strategy, champion their cause, and achieve a successful outcome. Pat balances an unwavering determination to succeed on behalf of her clients with a positive, empathetic style that fosters loyalty and trust. She mentors, advocates, nurtures and gives, all while serving as one of New Jersey’s most talented and distinguished attorneys.

Throughout her career, Pat has been recognized as a major contributor to the field of matrimonial law. The well-being of her clients and the success of her colleagues and her dedication extends into the community and Bar. She has advocated on behalf of a range of clients, including but not limited to high-level executives, parents seeking custody, and clients involved in domestic violence situations. A compelling speaker, Pat lectures extensively and conducts media interviews on all aspects of family law. She is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney. She sits on the New Jersey State Bar Association Judicial and Prosecutorial Appointment Committee (JPAC) as the Morris County representative.  Under a compact established with the Governor, JPAC confidentially reviews the qualifications of candidates for the nominated judicial and prosecutorial positions and advises the Governor in its position regarding the candidate’s fitness to serve in the nominated position. In 2004, Pat received the Saul A. Tischler Award from the New Jersey State Bar Association Family, Law Section for outstanding contributions and dedication to the advancement of the practice of family law in New Jersey.
