Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C. Named New Jersey Law Journal’s Law Firm of the Year 2023*


Barry Evenchick Defends the Need to Keep the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor Active


Barry Evenchick a Partner in the Litigation Group at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden was quoted in the January 17, 2018, New York Times article, “On the Waterfront, a Mob Watchdog Is Fighting to Survive.”

Barry H. Evenchick, a New Jersey lawyer who served on the commission several years ago, said that he “was convinced then and still am” of the need for the commission because “labor racketeering still goes on.”

Besides, Mr. Evenchick added, dissolving the commission would not save taxpayers any money because it is funded by a tax on cargo that comes into the ports. The bill that Mr. Christie signed calls for that money, about $13 million annually, to go instead to the New Jersey State Police, which would take on the responsibility of stamping out corruption in the industry.
