NEW BRUNSWICK - Arnold Fishman, a former New Jersey State Bar Association trustee and member of the association's judicial vetting committee, has been tapped to receive its Professional Lawyer of the Year Award at the annual Commission on Professionalism event this fall.
Fishman, a South Jersey municipal court practice attorney, has also been active with the association's amicus program. On a volunteer basis, he attended each day of a four-week special master hearing on State v. Cassidy, which has to do with DUI cases, to ensure the association's interests were represented.
"The commitment he showed at the hearings alone is amazing," said NJSBA President John E. Keefe Jr.
