Abbey Harris, a litigation attorney who worked for medical malpractice and auto insurance firms, has been named chief counsel to the New Jersey Senate Majority Office.

“Abbey has decades of diverse legal and public policy experience, enabling her to make an immediate impact,” said Senate President Nicholas Scutari.  “Her private sector experience and legal skills will be an asset to the Senate Majority as we work on behalf of all New Jersey residents.”

A former law clerk to New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Virginia Long and an appellate court attorney at Fox Rothschild, Harris was serving as vice president of legal affairs and public policy for CURE and NJ PURE prior to joining the Senate staff.

Abbey’s extensive legal career in the private sector and commitment to public service uniquely qualifies her to offer counsel on a range of issues, making her an important addition to this office,” said Timothy Lydon, the executive director of the Senate Majority Office.   “Abbey has developed a well-deserved reputation for thoughtfully dissecting laws and public policies.”
