Fabiana Pierre-Louis, Gov. Phil Murphy’s pick to fill the state Supreme Court seat being vacated by Justice Walter Timpone later this year, easily wins people over, works very hard, is deliberate in her thoughts, and has flawlessly balanced being a high-powered attorney and a mother of two young sons, according to colleagues, former supervisors, lawmakers and members of the governor’s office who made her nomination official recently.

“Her credentials speak for themselves,” Matt Platkin, chief counsel to Murphy and considered the architect of Pierre-Louis’ nomination, said in a phone interview on Monday. “She clerked for Justice [John] Wallace, she handled difficult cases at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, she’s a partner at Montgomery McCracken. She is clearly a talented attorney.”
