2017 Brennan Awards

The Association of the Federal Bar of New Jersey (AFBNJ) honored Paul J. Fishman, an outstanding U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey, on June 15, 2017 when it conferred the annual William J. Brennan, Jr. Award, one of the most prestigious professional legal honors bestowed in the State of New Jersey.

The Hon. Joseph A. Greenaway, Jr., Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and attorney Lawrence S. Lustberg received the AFBNJ Brennan awards for 2015.

This award is named in honor and memory of William Joseph Brennan, Jr., one of New Jersey’s most esteemed jurists, and one of just four U.S. Supreme Court justices named to the Court from the Garden State.

During installation ceremonies, Sabrina G. Comizzoli, Esq, was installed as president, along with a 2017 slate of officers, and new trustees.

Recipients of the Barry Scholarship also were named and are listed here.

Since its inception in 1977, the Brennan Award evening remains one of the highlight legal events for attorneys in the Garden State.
