CJ Griffin Profiled in Super Lawyers for Work as Director of “First-of-its-kind” Stein Public Interest Center
CJ Griffin, Director of the Justice Gary S. Stein Public Interest Center at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden, was profiled in the Super Lawyers article, “The Inspired CJG: How the RBG documentary moved CJ Griffin to build a first-of-its-kind public-interest center.” The article chronicles the history of Griffin’s career, leading up to the establishment of the Stein Center in 2019, and discusses the impact of some of the landmark cases Griffin has worked on through the Center.
"I believe there’s not any New Jersey firm appearing before the Supreme Court more than we are," says Griffin. "It’s an honor to have clients that are trusting us to make these arguments and to play a role in so many decisions that are really going to make a difference and be very protective of constitutional rights, even above what is provided under the U.S. Constitution. I think we’re having a tremendous impact."
The article concludes by noting that, reflecting on the Center’s first two years, Griffin say’s it’s been especially gratifying to share her enthusiasm with colleagues.
"It’s wonderful to see it come to fruition, and it’s because so many people are coming together to volunteer their pro bono hours," she says. "It’s not always true you encounter lawyers that love being lawyers or who love the law, but this firm is full of people who find this super rewarding, challenging, exciting and valuable."
