CJ Griffin Named on Insider NJ's 2023 Insider Out 100 LGBTQ Power List
CJ Griffin, Partner and Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was named #16 on Insider NJ’s Annual 2023 Insider Out 100 LGBTQ Power List, marking the third year in a row in which Griffin was selected for this list. Compiled by Jay Lassiter, the list is a tribute to politically influential LGBTQ people in New Jersey politics. In recognizing Griffin, Insider NJ stated,
CJ Griffin is Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, a powerful law firm devoted to, among other things, open government under CJ’s leadership.
According to the firm’s website “the Stein Public Interest Center is dedicated to a broad range of public interest impact litigation and appellate advocacy that advances social, racial, and economic justice; protects civil liberties and constitutional rights; and promotes an open and transparent government.”
There’s not an attorney in NJ more devoted to government transparency than CJ Griffin who’s devoted to shining light into the dark crevices of NJ government. With New Jersey’s public records laws under attack from politicians who’d rather operate opaquely and out of sight, CJ Griffin’s strident and brilliant defense of OPRA, NJ’s open public record act, is more urgent than ever.
