They may be on the way up, but they’re really not “new.” They have already demonstrated their talent and dedication, and are building impressive careers for themselves, serving their clients, and leading the legal profession in New Jersey. The honorees below come from a variety of backgrounds and handle a wide array of legal work, but each has made his or her mark, and shows promise for much, much more.

The Law Journal owes a debt of gratitude to our outside panel of distinguished professionals, who devoted their valuable time to evaluating an excellent slate of nominees in four categories: development of the law; advocacy and community contributions; service to the bar; and peer and public recognition. We sincerely thank the panel members for their efforts: Supti Bhattacharya, Emily Kelchen, Virginia Long, Melissa Peters and Patti Scott.
