Joseph A. Lagana Sworn in to New Jersey Senate

On April 12, 2018 Joseph A. Lagana was sworn in to the New Jersey Senate following three terms as an Assemblyman.  Senator Lagana will continue to represent the 38th legislative district, replacing former Senator Robert Gordon after he was nominated for a seat on the state Board of Public Utilities by Governor Murphy.  Senator Lagana is now the Vice-Chair of the Senate's Law and Public Safety Committee, and a member of the Military and Veterans' Affairs Committee and the Health, Human Services and Senior Citizens Committee.

One of Senator Lagana's last acts before leaving the Assembly was joining Senate President Stephen Sweeney, Budget and Appropriations Committee Chairman Paul Sarlo, and Senate Judiciary Chairman Nicholas Scutari as a primary sponsor of bill S-1229, which gave members of New Jersey's judiciary a pay raise for the first time in nine years.

The Firm congratulates Joe on this auspicious debut and on his service to the people of New Jersey.
