Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Attorneys to Speak at NJSBA Annual Meeting and Convention
Bridgewater, NJ (May 9, 2011) – Three Members of Bridgewater-based law firm Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A., Frank T. Araps, Michael J. Stanton, and Jeralyn L. Lawrence, will speak at New Jersey State Bar Association (NJSBA) Annual Meeting and Convention, which will be held Wednesday, May 18 to Friday, May 20, 2010, at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.
Araps will moderate and speak at seminar hosted by the Construction Law Section of the NJSBA on May 19. From 8:00 to 9:15 a.m., he will lead discussion for “Amendments to the New Jersey Construction Lien Law.” This program will review the comprehensive set of amendments to the New Jersey Construction Lien Law, Title 2A:44A-1 through 38, signed into law by Governor Chris Christie on January 5, 2011. The amendments implemented proposed changes recommended by the New Jersey Law Revision Commission report of 2009, which attempted to respond to, clarify and resolve problems with the Lien Law that were encountered by the construction industry and addressed by reported court decisions since the 1994 adoption of the Construction Lien Law. The panel of experienced construction law practitioners will offer their insight on the new law.
Stanton will moderate a seminar entitled, “Reunification Therapy/Custody Neutral/Parent Coordinators,” hosted by the NJSBA Family Law Section for this year’s Annual Meeting. This seminar will be held from 1:00 p.m. to 2:40 p.m. on May 18. He will lead discussion on parent coordination and reunification therapy, as very important tools available to matrimonial attorneys and courts to identify the issues, educate the parties, monitor the parenting and progress, advise the parties and mediate disputes. This program will attempt to expand the understanding of the bench and bar regarding these valuable remedies.
Lawrence will also participate in a Family Law Track seminar hosted by the NJSBA Family Law Section. The panel entitled “Palimony and Equitable Remedies” will be held from 3:30 to 5:10 p.m. on May 18. This program will address the amendments to the statute of frauds, its impact on palimony cases now pending, and those cases to be brought in the future. The program will provide practitioners with strategies for raising alternative claims of relief for parties who have lived together without formalizing their relationship in a marriage, civil union or written cohabitation agreement.
