Highlights from Medal of Honor Awards Dinner
On September 20, 2022, over 250 people joined the New Jersey State Bar Foundation to recognize retired New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Jaynee LaVecchia and Raymond M. Brown, Esq., who both represent the best in the legal profession and exemplify the highest standards of excellence. We invite you to enjoy photo highlights from the evening HERE.
Over $50,000 was raised and will be used to serve the public through the Foundation’s robust offering of free law-related education programs and services. Thank you to all who attended – families, friends, colleagues, and members of the Bar and the judiciary. And thank you to our generous sponsors and advertisers. We hope to see you at next year’s event!
