About

Meet Kiomeiry Csépes, Esq., the Managing Member and Founder of Csepes Law.

Kiomeiry began her legal career in 1999, as a family law paralegal where she assisted countless families navigate the Court system and equitably resolve their legal issues. She is well versed in the area of family law and carries this invaluable experience- of over 20 years- and dedication to her family law clients today. 

Kiomeiry’s personal background has also given her great appreciation for the immigrant experience and perspective. She was born in Puerto Rico and only speaking Spanish migrated to New Jersey with her mother at a young age.  Her father was born into impoverished circumstances and immigrated to the United States from Hungary.  With such a foundation, Kiomeiry was raised to admire the immigrant experience and American dream.

Her own family’s history and intimate experience with immigration exposed her to a wide range of migratory issues affecting families. While her background is unique to her, Kiomeiry has always found great similarities to her clients. She has created her own immigrant stories, as she spends time abroad, meeting and speaking with people from all over the world.  Kiomeiry has made it a personal goal to dedicate much of her time to helping the immigrant community. 

As a student at Rutgers School of Law, Kiomeiry had the privilege of serving as a Student Lawyer with Rutgers’ first ever Immigrant Justice Clinic where she aided an unaccompanied minor get on the path to obtaining a special immigrant juvenile visa.  It was also at Rutgers Law School through Alianza, the Latino Law Student Association, that she was able to create a scholarship benefiting young minority high-school students in pursuit of an education. 

It was thus very clear for Kiomeiry that a legal career would allow her to become the advocate for her community that she always aspired to be.
