She was appointed to the Supreme Court Special Committee on Attorney Ethics to study the new ABA rules on professional conduct and also spearheads the firm’s pro bono efforts in New Jersey.
At Fox, Justice Long devotes her efforts to assisting clients with ethics and appellate matters, corporate governance and governmental integrity investigations and to serving as a mediator and arbitrator providing dispute resolution alternatives.
