IN MEMORY OF OUR FRIEND, MENTOR AND COLLEAGUE It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our partner, friend, mentor and colleague Bruce I. Goldstein on September 2, 2023. Prominent New Jersey litigator turned 80. During a legal career that spanned more than five decades, Bruce was considered one of the most talented and sought-after litigators in New Jersey. His love for the legal profession was infectious. Bruce will be greatly missed, as will his signature greeting of “How are you?” and the outsized smile that accompanied it.
