The Rising Stars are upcoming lawyers who are expected to make major contributions to their respective fields of law in coming years. Rising Stars often wind up on the SuperLawyers list after a few years.
SuperLawyers selects each year’s list “via a patented multiphase selection process involving peer nomination, independent research and peer evaluation.”
Ms. Avallone’s work is primarily in family law. She also does some work in the employment law field.
“Family law is more than just helping people with divorce. It is child custody, parenting time, spousal support, and a slew of other legal issues,” she said. “Sometimes it is also about domestic violence and obtaining restraining orders. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you do not surrender your rights. You need someone who knows the law and will fight for you.
In employment law, Ms. Avallone works with employees who are having difficulties on the job. This can include discrimination, retaliation, and hostile work issues. She believes people have the right to work in a safe environment and if employers will not provide that, they should be held accountable.
Ms. Avallone works with clients in mediation, arbitration, administrative hearings, and trials when necessary.

About Kingston Law Group
In 1981, Hanan M. Isaacs created a Central Jersey law partnership with Robert A. Felmeister. The firm was known as Felmeister & Isaacs. From their newly minted law offices In East Windsor, Mercer County, these two young lawyers created an instant brand, to produce, in turn, a loyal following. They took an aggressive stance on their first amendment right to advertise their legal services, including on the radio, a right the New Jersey Supreme Court was slow to recognize and support. Their stance produced a 6-year tussle with the State Supreme Court, resulting in multiple hearings in state and federal court and two changes to the Rules of Professional Conduct, including the current Rule permitting most forms of attorney advertising.
In 1988, Felmeister departed the firm to start a different career, and Isaacs constructed a sole practice focusing on family and divorce (a field in which he is a Certified Family Law Practitioner), employment law for workers, personal injury, insurance bad faith, and a general civil and criminal law practice. He also is an expert in negotiations, mediation, and arbitration of cases, whether as a neutral or a lawyer representing a party in those venues.
From 1998 to 2018, Mr. Isaacs hired paralegals and law associates to handle the firm’s work. He taught dispute resolution at Seton Hall Law School and Rider University, taught lawyers and judges the art and craft of negotiations and mediation, served as a Mediation Trainer and lecturer for the NJ Institute of Continuing Legal Education and NJ Association of Professional Mediators (NJAPM), published many articles on divorce, family law, and Alternative Dispute Resolution, and served in leadership roles at the State Bar Association, on Supreme Court Committees, and at NJAPM. He also served for many years on successive Zoning Boards of Adjustment (in Montgomery Township and Princeton), and on his Homeowners Association Board.
In 2018, Mr. Isaacs formed a law partnership with Misty V. Avallone, Esq., a long-time associate of the firm, who focuses on matrimonial law practice.
