IN MEMORIAM OUR FRIEND, MENTOR, AND COLLEAGUE It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our partner, friend, mentor, and colleague Bruce I. Goldstein, on September 2, 2023. The prominent New Jersey trial attorney was 80. In a legal career spanning more than five decades, Bruce was regarded as one of the most talented and sought after litigators in New Jersey. His love for the legal profession was contagious. Bruce will be greatly missed, as will his signature greeting, How you be? and the outsized smile that accompanied it.
