Prior to joining the firm, Ms. Personette served as Appointment’s Counsel to Governor Chris Christie. As Appointment’s Counsel, she was instrumental in facilitating the Governor’s nominations and appointments to judgeships, prosecutorships, and the 500+ boards, commissions, and authorities within the State of New Jersey. Working in the State House afforded her the unique opportunity to participate in functional procedures of our legal system that few attorneys are privileged to witness.
Ms. Personette clerked in the Bergen Vicinage of the Superior Court of New Jersey- Criminal Division for the Honorable James J. Guida, J.S.C. Here, she had the opportunity to refine her legal research, writing and analytical skills, to observe a variety of trials and hearings in every division of the judiciary, and to acquire firsthand knowledge of both substantive and procedural law.
Ms. Personette received her J.D. from Seton Hall University School of Law in 2014. As a law student, she represented juveniles charged with acts of delinquency in Essex County through the Juvenile Justice Clinic at the Seton Hall School of Law Center for Social Justice.
