McKeon, New Jersey General Assembly, and as Law Clerk to the Honorable Robert L. Polifroni, Presiding Civil Judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Bergen Vicinage.

In addition, Ron represents his clients in the litigation of estate disputes, and has represented businesses before the trial courts of both New York and New Jersey in a variety of contract disputes.

In 2018, Ron was appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court to a four-year term as a Member of the District VI Fee Arbitration Committee. He also volunteers his time advocating for the rights of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community as a member of the Hudson Bar Association LGBTQ+ Committee, and the New Jersey State Bar Association LGBT Rights Section.

In his free time, Ron facilitates leadership programs for fraternity men and sorority women around the country.
