Amy Sara Cores, Esq. graduated from Florida State University (FSU) with a B.A. in History and a minor in Music. Ms. Cores is a classically trained cellist and also plays the guitar and sings. After focusing on music performance for many years, she was inspired after hearing a lecture by Elie Wiesel. She applied to the Master’s Degree program at FSU to concentrate her studies on Jewish Resistance to the Holocaust.

In her graduate program, Ms. Cores quickly distinguished herself as a devoted student and teaching assistant. She was invited to participate in a fledging program called “Preparing Future Faculty.” This was a rewarding experience that provided her the opportunity to hone her public speaking and teaching skills. She was active in several student organizations and presented several papers at international conferences.

During her graduate studies at FSU she worked with several highly respected professors. Her research focused on Jewish armed resistance in clandestine organizations. Her thesis entitled “Jews in the Armia Krajowa” provides a contrary perspective of the ability of Jews to rise up against the Final Solution. Specifically, Ms. Cores was able to interview several former members of the Armia Krajowa (then residing in Israel) who related their personal history and experiences to her.

Ms. Cores is a member of the New Jersey State Bar Association, the Monmouth Bar Association, the Middlesex County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, and the Howell Chamber of Commerce. She serves on several committees within these organizations.

Ms. Cores is licensed to practice in the Supreme Court of the United States, the Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, the Federal District Court for the District of New Jersey, and in all courts in the State of New Jersey. She is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Matrimonial Law Attorney. Ms. Cores is also a Fellow of the prestigious American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

Ms. Cores is married and resides in Monmouth County with her husband and children. You can catch her on nice days riding her Harley Davidson to the office or court.
