Eliades Becomes First Vice President of the New Jersey State Bar Association

NEW BRUNSWICK -- Sparta lawyer, Paris P. Eliades, took the

oath of office as first vice president May 17, at the New Jersey

State Bar Association’s Annual Meeting and Convention at the

Borgata Casino Hotel and Spa in Atlantic City. It has been over

30 years since a Sussex County lawyer served on the association’s executive committee. He is on track to become president of the state’s largest lawyers group in 2014. He is also the first Greek- American officer of the association.


“As the first born son of Greek immigrants I was taught that there is no substitute for hard, honest work. That work ethic and the passion I have for this profession fuels my desire to do the best I can to serve the lawyers of this great State,” said Eliades, a family

law attorney.


Eliades is a partner at Courter, Kobert & Cohen in Sparta. He is a former assistant Sussex County prosecutor and municipal prosecutor in Hamburg. During his career, he has handled almost every kind of trial there is, from workers’ compensation cases to matrimonial matters.


His state bar association service has been extensive. Eliades presently serves on the Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Oversight Committee. He served for many years as a member of the Board of Trustees, a member of the Membership and Public Relations Committee, and was an executive committee member of the Family Law Section. He is also a trustee of the Municipal Court Practice Section and was the Sussex County representative to the Judicial and Prosecutorial Appointments Committee.
