“Serving on the Supreme Court of New Jersey was an honor. It is an experience for which I am deeply grateful and one that I believe will make me a better lawyer and advocate. As those close to me will attest, I always intended to return to my first professional love, the practice of law. I have enormous respect for my new colleagues at Ballard, many of whom are longtime friends. Coming here was both a natural and exciting choice.”
