Following a 28-year run as a federal judge, Freda L. Wolfson has rejoined her old law firm, Lowenstein Sandler, according to an official announcement.
“Judge Wolfson was my boss, a mentor, and now—thirty years after serving as her law clerk—it is my honor to call Judge Wolfson my partner,” Christopher Porrino, a former New Jersey attorney general and now the chair of Lowenstein Sandler’s litigation practice said of the addition, according to an official statement.
Wolfson previously practiced at the Lowenstein firm for seven years following her graduation from Rutgers Law School in 1979, and then moved to the bench where she served as a United States Magistrate Judge in 1986.
Wolfson said she was “immensely proud of my public service.”
“I am also very excited to start this new stage of my career, working with the talented lawyers at Lowenstein,” Wolfson said. “The firm shares my dedication to advancing the public good, and I look forward to collaborating with my new colleagues in ways that benefit our local, regional, and global communities.”
“It has been well worth the wait,” Gary Wingens, the chair and managing partner at Lowenstein Sandler said. “Since her time with us, Judge Wolfson has gone on to national acclaim for her astute judicial opinions and keen leadership on the bench. Her many accomplishments, accolades, and experience make her an invaluable resource to our firm.”
