Walsh Honors Late Hon. Joel A. Pisano at Essex County Bar Foundation Memorial Service
NEWARK, N.J., July 5, 2022 – Billy Walsh of Walsh Pizzi O’Reilly Falanga LLP paid tribute to late Hon. Joel A. Pisano, U.S.D.J. at this year’s Essex County Bar Foundation Memorial Service. The annual service, which took place in June, is held to remember Essex County lawyers, jurists, friends and colleagues, and to honor the lasting contributions they made to the practice of law.
After retiring from the bench in 2015, Judge Pisano reentered private practice as Counsel at Walsh Pizzi O’Reilly Falanga LLP. The Essex County Bar Association quickly named him Professional Lawyer of the Year. Liza Walsh described Judge Pisano as “a friend to all and a loved member of the firm. His kindness, quick wit, and passion for the law will not be forgotten.”
“I’m just so humbled and grateful that the Judge’s beloved wife Bette gave me the honor of being able to say a few words about the great man I knew,” Billy said. “I know I speak for our entire firm when I say we miss him dearly every day.”
