Jamie Baum, Associate Attorney
"I find great satisfaction in helping to improve people’s lives. Many of the clients I work with are going through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Helping them transform adversity into some semblance of relief and seeing them come out on the other side is incredibly rewarding. I enjoy being a voice for the voiceless—the people who struggle to advocate for themselves. That includes children. That’s why I strive to help our clients reach lasting, amicable solutions that are fair for all parties and prioritize the well-being of their children."
Jamie Baum is an Associate Attorney at Vacca Family Law Group and focuses on resolving matrimonial and family disputes in a fair and equitable manner. Jamie brings a unique, non-adversarial, and collaborative approach to family law matters, prioritizing peaceful resolutions over courtroom battles. Jamie’s experience as a judicial family law clerk for the Honorable Michael Antoniewicz, J.S.C. in the Bergen County, New Jersey Superior Court, Family Part has given her invaluable insights into how matrimonial and family issues are handled in court. She leverages this experience in both collaborative practice and mediation, as she believes the right person to decide on your matrimonial and family law issues is you, not a judge.

Jamie is committed to giving back to her community.

Her commitment to community service during college ultimately earned her the Abel J. and Lucy Pinney Gregg Award. She currently knits hats for an organization that provides hand-knitted hats to persons experiencing homelessness.
