Connell Foley provides a challenging, rewarding experience across a range of legal disciplines. Our goal is to offer our lawyers the resources to excel in their areas of practice and to earn national recognition for their accomplishments. We are proud that many of our lawyers have been with the firm for decades, highlighting the value of a fulfilling, collegial team environment.
We encourage professional growth at Connell Foley and invite lawyers joining the firm to assume a high degree of responsibility. By offering firsthand experiences — such as taking depositions, arguing motions, handling transactions and engaging directly with clients, witnesses and opposing counsel — we ensure new lawyers have the appropriate tools to accelerate their careers. Our supervising lawyers and practice group leaders provide direction and constructive feedback to ensure consistent and positive development.
We help further each lawyer’s legal education and development through accredited in-house seminars and externally sponsored programs covering a variety of practice areas and professional skills. Our lawyers also have the ability to participate in trial colleges, including those offered through the IADC and ABOTA, and American Inns of Court programs, addressing areas such as ethics, bankruptcy, intellectual property, civil litigation, federal practice and labor/employment law.
Our attorney compensation system parallels each attorney’s development and proficiency, and is competitive with other major New Jersey law firms.
