Please recommend a good employment law attorney in New Jersey

Asking for a friend. Friend needs an attorney in New Jersey who specializes in employment law. This is fairly urgent due to her employer's current actions. I have read the Metafilter wiki page Get a lawyer and we are both actively searching for attorneys in her area. I am specifically seeking personal recommendations from MeFites who have had good experiences with an attorney with this specialization. Northern NJ/nearish NYC is a plus.

Getting divorced. Lawyer or mediation?

Getting divorced in Illinois. I still love my husband, but cannot remain married to him for many reasons, one of which being that I can no longer take care of him emotionally and financially without ruining my own life. My first instinct was to try to settle this using mediation or collaborative divorce (I don't even understand 100% what this is, honestly). Mostly because I feel enormously guilty for leaving, don't want to make it harder on him, and hope that we can still be a part of each other's lives. No kids, so custody isn't an issue. But there are some major financial issues, and some of the things he's said worry me. Sorry, this is kind of a long one. [more inside]

My lawyer is refusing to share work product

My lawyer is unwilling to email me an appeal they have written for me. They say I can review it in their office, but as policy they do not email 'work product' to clients. This is frustrating to me because I feel I can better understand the documents if I read them at home, rather than being put on the spot in a meeting. Is this normal? [more inside]

Overseas Law Jobs

I am an attorney working for a midsize firm in the US. I am fairly happy with my job, but have always wanted to work abroad (particularly in the UK). I have no clue how desireable (if at all) US licensed attorneys are abroad or how to go about finding job openings. I found several legal recruiters based in Europe online, but the sites are a bit sketchy. I know that there are various legal exchange programs, but they are generally in non-profit fields or send you to third world countries (which is admirable, but not what I am looking for). Any thoughts, resources or insights would be greatly appreciated.

Do we need a lawyer when we close on our mortgage refinance?

Because we are in New York state, when we close on our refi, we are going to have to sign all of our paperwork in person. As I understand it, New York law requires this. We had our own lawyer present when we closed on the purchase of this house. Should we have one when we close on the refinance? If so, Why? If it matters, we are in Nassau county, and we are refinancing with the original bank who has owned our mortgage since we purchased the home.

Lawyer for Mortgage Assumption?

I'm doing a mortgage assumption for a co-op in NYC. It was co-owned and the other owner was bought out, with their name now being taken off the mortgage and the co-op stock certificate.
