ROSELAND, N.J./December 27, 2007 -- New Jersey Lawyer magazine reprinted a speech penned and delivered by the Honorable John W. Bissell, Retired, Chair of Connell Foley's Alternative Dispute Resolution practice group. The speech, entitled "The Triangle of Life" appeared in the December 2007 issue of the magazine.

Judge Bissell's address offers a life-balancing lesson to newly admitted attorneys - to consider life like an equilateral triangle in which the legal profession comprises only one side. A balanced life must include equal attention to the personal identity and the relationships with family and friends which form the other sides of the triangle.

Judge Bissell joined Connell Foley as counsel in 2005, after retiring from his post as Chief Judge of the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey. Prior to his retirement from the judiciary, Judge Bissell served in the state and federal court systems for twenty-seven years.
