Unanimous Vote from the Assembly Judiciary Committee on bill A-1477

This morning the Assembly Judiciary Committee unanimously passed the New Jersey Family Collaborative Law Act. The Bill now waits for votes on the floors of the Senate and the Assembly. Thanks for all of the support and endless hours of work  from members of the Legislative Committee.

Thanks also to the Council and  members of the Practice Groups who have traveled to Trenton to sign in on behalf of the Bill before the Senate and the Assembly Committees.

We also appreciate the support of the State Bar  and the New Jersey Law Revision Committee. Their appearances at each of the Committee hearings has been invaluable.

Last, and certainly not least, THANK YOU, to Valerie Brown for her guidance, wisdom and knowledge in moving this Bill so swiftly on behalf of the Council. This has truly been a team effort and our success demonstrates the benefits of collaborating together.
