Tiffany Williams Named Young Lawyer of the Year

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ-Morristown attorney Tiffany Williams received the esteemed Young Lawyer of the Year Award from the Young Lawyers Division of the New Jersey State Bar Association on May 18 at the organization’s Annual Meeting in Atlantic City. The Young Lawyer of the Year designation is presented to a young lawyer whose personal and professional achievements merit special recognition and who has made unique community and public service contributions, has actively participated in the organized bar and has stood out in the areas of professional knowledge, skill, integrity and courtesy.

Her prior experiences include being an assistant US attorney for the District of New Jersey and for Senator Bill Bradley where Williams “has performed remarkably well in each position” according to her nominator Sharon Price Cater.

Williams is also on the Board of Directors of the YWCA of Central New Jersey. This is a position where she has “provided invaluable pro bono legal services to the YWCA.” Williams has also been useful in the marketing and recruitment of new members for the YWCA.

Outside of the legal realm, Williams is an active member of her sorority, a recently ordained minister and a mentor to young women in her area.

Williams received her Masters’ degree in Public Administration from Rutgers University and went on to graduate from Seton Hall Law School in 1999. She has been admitted to practice in New Jersey since 2004.

The Young Lawyers Division of the NJSBA organizes and promotes activities, including continuing legal education seminars that are of assistance to new lawyers in the practice of law, and encourages pro bono and community service involvement by all new lawyers.

The New Jersey State Bar Association, incorporated in 1899, is dedicated to the continuing education of lawyers and the public, to reforming and improving the legal system and to aiding in the administration of justice.
