In what could be a long list of potential candidates for federal judgeships or the next U.S. Attorney if Joe Biden wins the presidency, 83 New Jersey attorneys have signed on as the founding members of Jersey Lawyers for Joe.
The list includes former U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman, eight former presidents of the New Jersey State Bar Association, and some of the state’s most politically prominent lawyers.
“Together, we are a group of diverse lawyers from all corners of the Bar, motivated to support Vice President Biden in his run to become the next President of the United States—and restore the rule of law,” said former New Jersey State Bar Association president John Keefe. Beyond voter protection and election administration, the group will be dedicated to fundraising and other policy initiatives driven by the national Lawyers for Biden team, including vetting, corporate due diligence, and legal research.
The team was assembled by Rob Garrison, Marilyn Davis, Michael DuPont and Guillermo Artiles, the leaders of Biden’s New Jersey campaign operation, and plans to build an organization of lawyers in each county to plan for a possible general election that is conducted entirely through vote-by-mail ballots.
The Jersey Lawyers for Joe group includes former Assembly Majority Executive Director Bill Caruso, State Sen. Joseph Lagana (D-Paramus), Assembly Majority Conference Leader Annette Quijano (D-Elizabeth), Metuchen Mayor Jonathan Busch, Democratic State Committee counsel Raj Parikh, former Jersey City Corporation Counsels Bill Matsikoudis and Jeremy Farrell, Hunterdon Democratic County Chair Arlene Quinones Perez, lobbyist Eric Shuffler, and power lawyers Joseph DeCotiis, Angelo Genova, Joe Hayden, Victor Herlinsky, Bill Tambussi and Elnardo Webster.
