Hall Booth Smith PC announced recently retired New Jersey Superior Court Judge Raymond Reddin is joining the firm as a partner.
The Atlanta-based litigation firm also announced it is opening two new offices in New Jersey, as it expands beyond the Southeast for the first time to serve clients in New Jersey and New York.
HBS’s new offices in Jersey City and Saddle Brook will be led by Drew Graham, partner, who has been with the firm since 1992. He will also continue to lead the Aging Services practice group.
Reddin, who recently retired as a judge after serving on the bench for 16 years, is joining the office in Saddle Brook. He will lead HBS’s mediation and arbitration practice group in addition to working on active shooter and workplace violence matters.
The New Jersey locations bring Hall Booth Smith’s total number of offices to 17.
“We look forward to growing our presence in New Jersey and New York regions in the years to come, and it is tremendous asset to add Judge Reddin’s decades of experience and unique insight to our mediation and arbitration practice group,” said Graham, who was formerly based at the firm’s Atlanta headquarters office.
