Feeney Becomes President-Elect of State Bar

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ—Newark attorney Susan A. Feeney became president-elect of the New Jersey State Bar Association last week.

Feeney, a partner who specializes in tax issues at McCarter and English, took the oath of office at the association’s Annual Meeting and Convention at the Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City. The installation ceremony was May 20.

She is on track to become president of the state’s largest lawyers group in 2011, making her the seventh woman to hold the office.

Feeney, of Skillman, has been a member of the NJSBA for nearly 30 years and served on the association’s Board of Trustees from 2001 to 2006.

As an officer of the Association, she also serves as trustee for the New Jersey State Bar Foundation, the NJSBA’s educational and philanthropic arm.

Her involvement in various aspects of the legal community has been extensive. She has served on the Supreme Court of New Jersey’s Board of Bar Examiners Committee on Character, and the Committee on the New Jersey Tax Court.

The legal community has consistently honored her contributions to the field. Feeney has been named in NJBIZ’s 2009 roster of the Best 50 Women in Business. For four consecutive years, Feeney was named The Best Lawyers in America. For the past five years, she has been named a SuperLawyer in New Jersey.

A summa cum laude graduate of Seton Hall University, she earned her law degree from Fordham University School of Law, New York.

In her spare time, she is an avid equestrian and volunteers with the Flame of Charity.
