Tax may be her specialty, but when Susan A. Feeney is sworn in Thursday as the 113th president of the New Jersey State Bar Association, service to the disadvantaged will take the top spot on her ledger.
Feeney, a partner in McCarter & English‘s tax and benefits practice, says the three primary goals of her presidency are to look at strategies to expand pro bono service, organize civic service for the association that incorporates the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11 and expand leadership positions for people of diverse backgrounds within the legal community.
“I’m honored that the bar association has chosen me for this position, and I will work extremely hard to lead the bar through a successful year while focusing on policies that enhance the legal community and the services we provide to the people of New Jersey,” Feeney said.
Feeney will be the seventh woman to hold the position of president, and will be sworn in at the bar association’s annual convention in Atlantic City. She serves on a variety of tax advisory councils, including a committee of the state Supreme Court.
