Judges interact with a large number of attorneys in a multitude of matters, and are uniquely qualified to identify best practices for professionalism that attorneys should follow to comply with the Rules of Professional Conduct. This panel will offer their perspectives on civility in the practice of law, illustrating behaviors to emulate and pitfalls to avoid, with examples from their distinguished tenure on the bench.
Judge Berman focuses his practice on mediation, arbitration, and discovery management of complex family, commercial, estate/probate, real estate and general equity matters. His practice area also encompasses special master services, settlement conferences and law enforcement investigations. He brings to the firm a wealth of expertise garnered from his many years of service to New Jersey’s Judiciary.
