Fox Rothschild LLP congratulates Justice Virginia Long, who was appointed to the Judicial Advisory Panel by New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy.

The panel consists of former jurists and practicing attorneys who will assist the governor in evaluating and selecting candidates for judgeships.

A respected member of the New Jersey bar for more than 40 years, Justice Long was appointed to the state’s high court in 1999. After serving as a trial and appellate court judge for 23 years and on the New Jersey Supreme Court for 12 years, she retired at the mandatory retirement age of 70 in March 2012.

Justice Long devotes much of her time to public service issues. She is a member of the Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct, the New Jersey Law Revision Commission and serves on the Board of Legal Services of New Jersey. Justice Long previously served as a board member of Centurion Ministries, a Princeton-based organization dedicated to finding justice for wrongly imprisoned and factually innocent individuals.

Counsel at Fox, Justice Long assists clients with ethics and appellate matters; corporate governance and governmental integrity investigations and serves as a mediator and arbitrator, providing dispute resolution alternatives. She also spearheads the firm’s pro bono efforts in New Jersey and was appointed to the Supreme Court special committee on attorney ethics to study the new ABA rules on professional conduct.
