In Memoriam

Paul H. Feinberg passed away in 2014 and with him passed a history of excellence in the practice of criminal law. Paul started his criminal law practice in 1976. Throughout his years of practice, the rights of individuals were in dire need of protection.

Representation of criminal clients was his dream job. His passion was social change and justice. He believed it was his duty to right whatever wrongs he could. He took his job as a criminal defense attorney very seriously. He took each case to heart and worked relentlessly to prepare for each one.

Paul had superior reasoning skills to be able to present his client’s cases in a way that both a judge and jury could understand that produced so many winning results. His ability to defend the worst of the worst was well known to the legal community. His success can be attributed to his heartfelt belief that everyone deserved a chance and that was the only way the system could remain honest.

Paul’s happiest times were in the courtroom. He had the reputation of treating all of the people he dealt with respect, be they clients, prosecutors, judges, court staff, or members of the jury.

Paul was known as a straight shooter and an attorney that was known for never backing down. When he walked into the courtroom, he filled it.

Many of his clients benefitted from not only his work in the courtroom but his advice and compassion with his clients, their families and their lives.

Paul made a difference. He fought tirelessly against the death penalty and was instrumental in New Jersey doing away with the death penalty. One of his proudest achievements was that no one on his watch ever received the death penalty.

Paul is sorely missed.
