Ocean County Specialist
Anne M. Davis, Esq. is the former Executive Director of NORML New Jersey (National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws) and a founding member of the NORML Women’s Alliance. She is also a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association as well as the Ocean County Bar Association. She has taught several semesters as an Adjunct Professor for Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Paralegal Program. Anne continues to hold a New Jersey Real Estate license since 1988, currently with Prudential BayFront Realty in Brick, NJ. Though no longer working as a Realtor, she fully understands real estate transactions from every perspective. Over the past 20 years, she has owned, managed, bought and sold both commercial property and numerous residential properties. “My experience as a landlord and dealmaker allows me to fully understand my clients’ needs and concerns.” In her personal life, Anne is a single mother of two daughters and understands the implications of divorce on children, as well as the necessity of communication and co-parenting.
Anne Davis has 15 years of litigation experience. Immediately upon graduating from Seton Hall University School of Law in 2000, she served as a Judicial Law Clerk to the Honorable Thomas E. O’Brien, P.J.S.C., in both the Civil and Family Law Divisions where she learned the inside workings of the judicial system and first-hand knowledge of what is important to Judges in evaluating witnesses, finding facts and ruling on issues of law. She then spent a year working with the fierce and respected trial attorney, Michael Wilbert, formerly of Wilbert, Montenegro & Thompson who taught her the art of conducting jury trials.
She has helped hundreds of clients with a variety of backgrounds and problems. She has true courtroom, litigation and trial experience in areas of civil litigation, personal injury, family law, real estate, criminal, and business law.
My approach to divorce and family law in general is to be practical, allowing clients to spend the least amount of money to achieve the best possible outcome. Settlements can be reached even in the most difficult cases, which is always the wisest decision when the parties have children. Matters involving significant assets, high income, or high profile clients benefit the most from this approach, especially when it involves businesses that prefer to keep their matters as private and confidential as possible. I am an experienced, skilled negotiator in business, civil matters, real estate deals and divorce settlements. My desire to settle matters is never to be mistaken for weakness. It is a sincere attempt to do what is best for my clients. In those cases where the other party is wholly unreasonable or resistant, I will not hesitate to litigate when necessary. My years of litigation experience will be apparent in those situations.
