In a written opinion, the Superior Court of New Jersey’s Appellate Division praised Paul’s written and oral advocacy as “masterful” in a joint employer case. Earlier in his career, Paul was the first lawyer to use New Jersey law to win a jury verdict against a mortgage company for unfair business practices.
