Balmer Black is pleased to announce the addition of Lisa M. Sassone, Esq. to its New Jersey office.
Ms. Sassone spent more than nine years as counsel for a variety of non-profit organizations that provided civil legal services. During that time, she handled hundreds of cases per year, primarily family law cases, cases involving domestic violence, and disability matters. She has assisted numerous families in resolving disputes, obtaining protection for survivors of domestic violence, and assisting disabled children and adults obtain disability benefits which they were wrongfully denied. She also handled landlord tenant cases, public entitlement matters, and other civil legal matters.
Ms. Sassone is a graduate of the University at Buffalo Law School. During law school, Lisa was the 2005 Recipient of the Kaplan and Reynolds Public Interest Fellowship, which allowed her to intern with a non-profit organization in Buffalo, New York where she worked on the Grandparents Rights Project. This experience shaped her interest in working with families and children. During her final year of law school Lisa worked handling public entitlement cases under a student practice order.
On a personal note, Lisa takes great pride in being the first member of her family to attend college and has a special interest in working with families, children, and the disabled. Lisa is excited to return to her home state of New Jersey and is licensed to practice law in New Jersey, New York, and North Carolina.
