Justice Roberto Rivera-Soto, who served for seven years on the Supreme Court of New Jersey, is now a litigation partner at Ballard Spahr. Justice Rivera-Soto said joining Ballard Spahr was a natural choice. The national scope of the firm fits with his practice platform and many of the attorneys at Ballard Spahr are longtime friends.

"He has a brilliant legal mind and I know of nobody with more exacting standards," said Steven W. Suflas, managing partner of Ballard Spahr's New Jersey office. "I very much look forward to working with him as a colleague and as a friend."
