Marion Littman Receives NJSBA Legislative Recognition Award

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ – Marion Littman, a Princeton resident and attorney with Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, PC in Somerset, was honored with the New Jersey State Bar Association’s (NJSBA) Legislative Recognition Award in September for her work on the NJSBA-drafted guardianship bill, S-2017/A-3638 (Singer/Weinberg.) The bill promotes, among other things, limited guardianship in such proceedings and autonomy for the mentally incapacitated.

In addition to drafting the bill, Littman and others met with staff of the Administrative Office of the Courts to work on amendments to the bill, and met with the AARP and other groups to gain support for the bill.

The annual Legislative Recognition Award is given to acknowledge noteworthy legislative service of NJSBA members.

Littman is immediate past chair, and a trustee of the NJSBA Health and Hospital Law Section, and a member of the National Health Lawyers Association, the Health Law Section of the American Bar Association, and the Pennsylvania Bar Association.

A partner in the health law department of Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus, PC in Somerville, Littman practices exclusively in the area of health law, with clients in New Jersey and other states. She provides legal counsel to hospitals and health systems, physicians and physician practice groups, nursing homes and other providers, as well as management services organizations and other health care clients, and covers a wide range of issues, from transactional work, to patient care related issues, to regulatory work. Her efforts on the guardianship bill have sought to address issues that tend to arise with regard to hospital patients.

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.
