Berner Klaw & Watson LLP, formerly known as Berner & Klaw, was founded in 1994 by Joni Berner and Margaret Klaw, as a successor practice to the Law Offices of Joni J. Berner (1987 – 1993).  Currently, we have nine attorneys and four support staff members. We practice all aspects of family law, including prenuptial agreements, divorce, custody, support, protection from abuse, adoption, and GLBT relationship and dissolution agreements.
We also handle a limited number of personal injury cases arising out of family issues such as domestic violence or child sexual abuse. 
Additionally, we offer divorce and custody mediation services - three of our attorneys are trained mediators. Berner Klaw & Watson LLP practices in Philadelphia, Montgomery, Delaware, Chester, Bucks and Lehigh counties in Pennsylvania and in Gloucester, Camden and Burlington counties in New Jersey. Joni Berner is also trained in collaborative family law.

Posted March 7th, 2014: "The Right Result"
I have a bone to pick with my fellow family lawyers. Some of my brethren and sistren have a tendency to conflate what the law dictates should happen and what is right. There is a basic philosophical rift in our profession which manifests itself in the answer to this question: if a couple agree on a divorce settlement that is outside the range of what a court might have ordered – that is, it’s not a result you’d get by applying the divorce laws of our state – is that ok or not? I say yes. A number of my colleagues say no.. . .
