The Law and Justice committee is one of 14 committees analyzing and making recommendations on various issues facing the state as Murphy prepares to take office on January 16. Mr. Gibson and Mr. Freeman are among more than 500 policy experts and leaders in their respective fields from throughout the state chosen for the committees. Committees will meet and submit recommendations to the Governor-elect and his leadership team that will help shape the new administration’s legislative and regulatory agenda.
“New Jersey needs an administration ready to hit the ground running in January, and through the work of the transition committees my administration will not take office blind to the challenges and opportunities before us,” said Murphy when announcing the appointments. “I am grateful to everyone who accepted the call to serve our transition. From analyzing and prescribing policy to taking a fresh look at the basic organization of government, these committees have a lot of work to do. I am confident they will put my administration in a position to begin delivering results for the people of New Jersey from day one.”

During his 28-plus years in practice, Mr. Gibson has litigated and tried a variety of commercial, employment, construction and toxic tort/product liability cases seeking personal injuries and property claims.
