We are pleased to announce that the Honorable Peter F. Bariso, Jr., former Assignment Judge of the Superior Court of New Jersey, Hudson County Vicinage, has returned to the Firm. Before Judge Bariso ascended to the bench, he was an equity partner in the Firm, which was then known as Chasan Leyner Bariso & Lamparello, PC.
With over two decades of litigation experience in the private sector and over sixteen extraordinary years as a jurist, Judge Bariso will be an asset to the Firm in consulting and mentoring our attorneys and in overseeing alternative dispute resolutions.
Judge Bariso chaired the Firm’s Insurance Defense Department for ten years prior to his appointment in 2005 by Governor Richard J. Codey. He served as the Presiding Judge of the Civil Division from 2006 until he became Assignment Judge in 2012, giving him judicial responsibility for all trial courts in the county, including the Superior Court and all municipal courts.
We are honored and humbled that Judge Bariso has returned to our Firm to share his unique and remarkable legal knowledge with our attorneys and clients.
