Alan Silber and Dillon McGuire attorneys at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden mentioned in New Jersey Law Journal article, “Judge Rejects Bergen Prosecutor's Bid to Compel Defense Lawyer's Testimony Against His Client.” The article explains a Superior Court judge has denied a motion by the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office to compel a criminal defense lawyer to testify before a grand jury against his own client.
