Alan G. Lesnewich, J.S.C. (Ret.), who served for ten years as a Union County (New Jersey) Superior Court judge after being appointed by the governor, rejoined Fisher Phillips upon his retirement from the bench in May of 2023. He draws on nearly forty years of experience as a jurist, litigator and trial attorney, including eight years as a Fisher Phillips partner (2005-2013), to help parties resolve employment cases by way of mediation and arbitration. He will also be able to provide litigation and trial strategy advice to FP clients.
Because Judge Lesnewich spent the majority of his ten years as a judge officiating civil trials, managing complex cases and handling a significant motion docket, he will also be providing alternative dispute resolution services to parties involved in commercial litigation, claims of personal injury, medical malpractice, dental malpractice, legal malpractice, insurance coverage, contracts and professional malpractice matters. He will also be available to provide litigation strategy, complex case management and act as a discovery master in such civil matters.
