Although he has been with us since late last year, it’s not too late to publically welcome our newest Associate, George Christopoulos. George is active in the Real Estate, Litigation and Transactional areas of our practice. He received his undergraduate degree from Seton Hall University, and his law degree from Widener University School of Law in Delaware. Before joining WJ&L, LLP, George served as a Law Clerk to the Honorable M. Alan Vogelson of the Superior Court. George is a very welcome addition to our staff.Elsewhere in this edition of the Legal Update, read all about our newest Partner, Jim Maggio. In addition to becoming a Partner of the firm effective April 1st, Jim was recently installed as a Member of the Board of Directors for the Paramus Chamber of Commerce.
Partner, Jim Delia, who with his family moved to Ho-Ho-Kus a year or so ago, has now been appointed to the Ho-Ho-Kus Public Schools Future Growth Committee. The committee has been asked to help determine the school’s physical plant needs in the future years.
Partner, Tom Wells, who divides his time between the Paramus office, and our office in Bristol, Vermont, reports that he is now a member of the Bristol Planning Commission. Those who know Tom, know he is a veteran of literally hundreds of appearances before Planning Boards and Commissions, and Boards of Adjustments on behalf of clients. It is interesting to think of Tom on the other side of the table.
