Online, May 24, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Denville law firm Einhorn Harris today announced that Theodore E.B. Einhorn, Founder of the firm, has been selected for New Jersey Law Journal's 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award. Einhorn is one of 25 lawyers throughout the State to earn this recognition. In addition, the New Jersey Law Journal has selected Einhorn Harris Partner, Bonnie C. Frost as one of three finalists for their Attorney of the Year Award and has named Partner, Timothy J. Ford to the New Leaders of the Bar list. All three Einhorn Harris attorneys will be recognized for these accolades on June 15 at the Law Journal's Professional Excellence Awards Dinner at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park.
All of the lawyers and support staff, here at Einhorn Harris, are so proud and excited to learn of our Founder, Mr. Einhorn's Lifetime Achievement Award," says Einhorn Harris Partner, Patricia M. Barbarito. "He is the heart and soul of our firm and has set the bar for Einhorn Harris' high standards through his determination, ethical practices and passion for the legal profession. We are equally thrilled that Bonnie Frost and Tim Ford are following in Mr. Einhorn's footsteps and being recognized for their hard work and dedication to their clients," Barbarito says.
The attorneys selected for the Lifetime Achievement Award have each helped shape the law in New Jersey, whether through their work on the bench, their work in-house, building a firm or any other means. Einhorn has practiced in Morris County and throughout New Jersey for over 58 years. He has served as counsel for various private development applications and has handled rezoning, site plan, subdivision and variance approvals including high-rise office buildings; office/warehouse buildings; office condominium buildings; skilled nursing facilities and continuous care centers; hotels; residential subdivisions; and regional and local shopping centers. Additionally, Einhorn was counsel to Saint Clare's Hospital in the landmark case of Karen Ann Quinlan. Einhorn has represented the Township of Denville, served as a member of the Morris County Ethics Committee, and as Chairman of the Judicial Selection Committee of the Morris County Bar Association.
Bonnie C. Frost, who joined Einhorn Harris in 1985, was selected as one of three finalists for the New Jersey Law Journal's Attorney of the Year Award, which is intended to recognize an attorney who had the greatest impact on the law, the legal profession or cause of justice in New Jersey over the past year. One winner will be chosen from the three final candidates at the awards dinner on June 15.
Frost earned the Attorney of the Year Award nomination for her advocacy in two matters of significance to the family bar. In Quinn v. Quinn, Frost argued that the courts lack the power to alter the terms of separation agreements between divorced parties. Frost appealed the trial court's decision to suspend, rather than terminate alimony, arguing that the terms of the couple's Property Settlement Agreement mandated that alimony be terminated. On May 3rd of this year, the Appellate Division affirmed and alimony was terminated.
Frost also advocated before the Appellate Division In the Matter of the Adoption of a Child by J.E.V. & D.G.V., in which the justices granted certification in December 2015 to consider whether an indigent parent facing termination of parental rights under New Jersey's Adoption Act has a right to appointed counsel. This matter is still pending before the New Jersey Supreme Court.
Frost has practiced in the field of matrimonial law and domestic relations, handling various cases such as divorce, custody, domestic violence, paternity and adoption and has had over 30 published opinions in the area of family law.
Timothy J. Ford is one of 47 attorneys in the state who have been selected as the New Jersey Law Journal's 2016 New Leaders of the Bar. Ford joined Einhorn Harris in 2007 as an Associate and was elevated to Partner in January 2016. He practices in the areas of employment law and general litigation, representing employers and employees in matters including wage and hour claims, employment agreements, unemployment, severance, restrictive covenants, employment benefits, wrongful termination, sexual harassment and discrimination. He represents private and public employees in New Jersey state and federal courts as well as various administrative courts and agencies throughout the state.
Ford is a member of the New Jersey and New York State Bar Associations, the Morris County Bar Association and the Morris County Chamber of Commerce. He is a former co-trustee for the Young Lawyers Section of the Morris County Bar Association and has served as a trustee for the past three years. Ford also volunteers as an attorney mentor with the Valley View Middle School Mock Trial Club and assists in the Club's participation in the New Jersey Bar Foundation Law Adventure Program.
