Jaynee LaVecchia To Receive NJSBF 2022 Medal of Honor

Jaynee LaVecchia of McCarter & English is a recipient of the 2022 New Jersey State Bar Foundation (NJSBF) Medal of Honor. The award is NJSBF’s highest honor, given annually to two recipients who exemplify professional excellence, service to the legal community, and commitment to the citizens of New Jersey.

“I am thrilled to be chosen to receive the New Jersey State Bar Foundation’s Medal of honor,” said LaVecchia. “I have spent the majority of my legal career in various forms of public service, including 21 years on our state’s highest Court. To have my service as a lawyer recognized by the Foundation–an organization dedicated to promoting pride in the law, our legal system, and public service–is a tremendous honor. It is humbling to receive this wonderful tribute for work that I was privileged to do and for which the service itself was an honor. I thank the Foundation for recognizing and including me in the company of the great lawyers of our Bar who have received this award.”

LaVecchia was nominated by Governor Christine Todd to serve on the New Jersey Supreme Court, a position she held for 21 years. She recently joined McCarter & English as a partner in the firm’s business litigation group.

LaVecchia will receive the award during the NJSBF Medal of Honor Awards Dinner on September 20 in East Brunswick, NJ. More information about the award and event is available on NJSBF’s website.
