About Christine A. Dolan, Lead Litigator

Christine A. Dolan has years of experience seeing families at their worst due to her background prosecuting child abuse and neglect cases in New York City. It was a tough job with few happy conclusions, but Ms. Dolan saw how motivated some parents were to be reunited with their children by overcoming substantial obstacles.

That led her to family law, a profoundly personal and emotional practice that often has scorned spouses trying to keep the other spouse from having more parenting time purely out of spite.

“As a parent myself, I know how important it is for a child to have a relationship with both parents as each parent brings something different and unique into a child’s life,” Ms. Dolan said. “I work hard to achieve the outcome my clients desire.”


Ms. Dolan is licensed to practice law in Colorado, New Jersey and New York.


Ms. Dolan graduated with a Bachelor of Arts from St. John’s University and earned her Juris Doctor from Pace University School of Law.

Professional Experience

Prior to joining Cordell & Cordell, Ms. Dolan primarily practiced family law and handled dissolution actions, contested child custody cases, domestic violence restraining order hearings, Division of Youth and Family Services matters, and post-judgment matters.

She also handled insurance defense matters, municipal court matters, workers compensations claims, and social security disability appeals.

She previously worked for the Administration for Children’s Services in New York City and prosecuted child abuse and neglect cases in Manhattan Family Court.


Ms. Dolan belongs to the Ocean County Bar Association and the American Bar Association. She also is a member of the Family Law Section of the New Jersey Bar Association.


Ms. Dolan was named to South Jersey Magazine’s list of Awesome Attorneys in 2020 and 2021.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
  • “It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
    – Mason B.
  • “Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
    – Mark L.
