ATLANTIC CITY -- Kimberly A. Yonta was sworn in last night to serve as second vice president of the New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA).

The Middlesex County lawyer and former association trustee is on the path to the presidency in 2020.

Yonta, a New Brunswick practitioner who concentrates in criminal trial advocacy and municipal criminal matters, said she was excited to continue working on issues that affect the members.

“We are working hard on several issues, all with the central mission of improving the lives and practices of attorneys throughout the state,” said Yonta. “I am excited to help lead the NJSBA as it moves forward, make changes for the better, and advocate for the members.”

Yonta has extensive experience in the association.

She is a former trustee. She is a past chair of the Criminal Law Section, and has previously chaired the Lawyers in Transition Committee, Finance and Operations Committee, Women in the Profession Section and Young Lawyers Division. Yonta is a member of several other state bar groups, including the Amicus, Finance and Operations, Government and Public Sector Lawyers, and Meetings Arrangements and Planning committees; and has served as the association’s representative to the New Jersey Supreme Court Committees on Model Criminal Jury Charges and Jury Selection. Last year, she was honored to receive the Solo Small-Firm Lawyer of the Year Award for her work related to lawyers in transition.

Yonta is also active as a trustee with the Middlesex County Bar Association.

She is married to former NJSBA Trustee Craig M. Aronow. They live in East Brunswick with their two daughters, Abigail and Madeline.
