On February 1, 2023, NJCJI welcomed its new in-house counsel, Alex R. Daniel. Alex will support NJCJI’s advocacy efforts before all branches of government. He will monitor New Jersey court decisions to assess their impact on the State’s civil justice system and administer NJCJI’s amicus program, representing NJCJI in select cases affecting the system. He will also conduct the critical legal and policy research underlying NJCJI’s legislative and regulatory advocacy. Alex will produce NJCJI’s newsletter and organize its events.

Before joining NJCJI, Alex was in private legal practice at large firms for several years, representing businesses, governmental entities, and individual clientele in State and federal courts at all stages of civil litigation. His practice focused on defense of class-action claims, consumer fraud matters, complex business disputes and litigation, mass torts, environmental litigation and site remediation, government investigations, and appellate matters.

Alex began his legal career as a law clerk for Justice Anne M. Patterson of the New Jersey Supreme Court. He received his J.D., summa cum laude, from Seton Hall University School of Law, and was a member of the Order of the Coif. Alex also received his B.A., summa cum laude, from Seton Hall University. He is licensed to practice law in New Jersey and before the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey.

Given Alex’s experience and impeccable credentials, we are confident that he will be an asset to NJCJI’s challenging mission. Alex can be contacted via e-mail at adaniel@civiljusticenj.org. Please join us in welcoming Alex to NJCJI!
