Walsh Partner Joseph L. Linares has been appointed to a one-year term to the United States District Court Lawyers Advisory Committee for the District of New Jersey by Chief Judge Renée Marie Bumb.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to serve on the Lawyers Advisory Committee,” Linares said. “I am looking forward to working with my fellow committee members to better serve the bench and bar.”

The mission of the Lawyers Advisory Committee is to serve the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey in achieving, dispensing, and administering justice in a fair, impartial, effective and efficient manner. The Lawyers Advisory Committee’s responsibilities include serving as a liaison between the bench, the bar and the public, discussing with the Court matters the Committee believes might improve the administration of justice, undertaking projects and conducting disciplinary investigations as requested by the Court, and reviewing and recommending local rules and procedures to improve court proceedings.

“The Court relies so much on the hard work and contribution of the Lawyers Advisory Committee,” said Walsh Counsel and former Chief Magistrate Judge Mark Falk. “Joe Linares is a superlative addition, who will bring a fresh perspective and foster constructive growth within the Court.”

Congratulations to Joe and all the newly appointed Committee members!
