The HBA-NJ Expresses Disappointment in the Failure to Nominate a Latino to the New Jersey Supreme Court

The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey Expresses Disappointment in the Failure to Nominate a Latino to the New Jersey Supreme Court


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 17, 2012

On December 10, 2012, Governor Chris Christie announced his nominees to fill the two current vacancies on the Supreme Court of New Jersey.  While the Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey (HBA-NJ) is not currently taking a position regarding the qualifications of the Governor’s nominees, the HBA-NJ observes that the latest nominations represent the third time – the second in less than a year – that nominations to the highest court of the State failed to include a Latino candidate.

The HBA-NJ considers it imperative that the leaders of our State appoint individuals that proportionately reflect the residents of New Jersey in order to instill public trust in our government and the justice system.  As the largest minority population in the State of New Jersey, and the largest growing minority population throughout the United States, Latinos have undeniably made significant contributions to the State.  Latinos have contributed in areas such as commerce, business, in the labor force and as professionals.  There has also been an increase in the electorate, as confirmed by the recent presidential election.  Further, Latinos make up a large segment of attorneys and litigants seeking justice in New Jersey’s judicial system.  Yet, in New Jersey, Latinos continue to be conspicuously underrepresented in positions that affect public policy and dispense justice.

The Governor’s nominations to the Supreme Court of New Jersey have been perceived by many as dismissive of the Latino community’s growth, contributions and influence in this State.  Latinos cannot be ignored, and the objective of increasing public trust should not be disregarded or lost to political objectives.  Moreover, the unfortunate result of the Governor’s decision is that the Supreme Court of New Jersey will most likely not have a Latino Justice until, at least, 2022 (nearly a decade), when Justice Barry T. Albin reaches the age of mandatory retirement.

The HBA-NJ doubts that such a result is a consequence intended by the Governor; especially since the Governor demonstrated during the response to the devastation caused by Sandy how bipartisanship works to the benefit of all the people.  Thus, the HBA-NJ is hopeful that the Governor will collaborate with the State Senate, in its advisory capacity to the Governor in these matters, and vice versa, to ensure that diversity on the Supreme Court – and all State Courts – proportionately reflects the residents of the State.

The HBA-NJ urges the Governor to consider that, during his administration, there has been little advancement in the numbers of Latinos serving in executive-appointed government positions that impact the Latino community and New Jersey as a whole.  Just as it has for decades, the HBA-NJ will continue to work with the Governor’s Office to identify highly-qualified members of New Jersey’s legal Latino community to serve on New Jersey’s Supreme Court, Superior Courts, Administrative Law and Workers’ Compensation Courts, as justices and judges, as well as to serve as county prosecutors and in all other government capacities.  There is certainly no shortage of such talent in this State.

HBANJ President Dan Mateo In The Spotlight!

Watch the Philadelphia Inquirer’s exclusive video and read the insightful article, below:

Lawyer honors his Camden roots

November 10, 2011|By Kevin Riordan, Inquirer Columnist

 

Moorestown lawyer Daniel Mateo grew up a “nerdy, skinny kid” in South Camden, which he describes as excellent training for his profession.20111110_inq_jriordan10-a2

“Nothing that happens in a courtroom [is] quite like being chased down a street,” the father of two says. “Talk about a life lesson. It makes you tough in a different sort of way.”

Two weeks ago, Mateo was sworn in as president of the 300-member Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey. He had the ceremony in Camden, because he wants to emphasize that anything is possible – even for kids who are growing up in one of America’s poorest cities, as he did.

“We invited 10 high school students,” he says. “It was important for them to see 200 to 300 Latino lawyers, dressed up in our finest and giving back to the community.”

Also present were students from New Jersey’s law schools; the association encourages them to mentor high schoolers. It also provides close to $30,000 annually in scholarships, “and this year we hope to provide even more,” he says.

I meet Mateo outside Our Lady of Mount Carmel-Fatima Church, an anchor for generations of Italians and, later, Puerto Ricans in South Camden.

The Cherry Street rowhouse where he spent part of his childhood is around the corner; vacant lots line the north side of his old block, but houses on the south side are neatly painted.

“Being here is super-emotional,” says Mateo. “It brings back a lot of memories, good memories. Even though it was a very poor neighborhood, there was a sense of safety and community.

“People looked out for each other,” he recalls, a bit wistfully, as we drive past clusters of rowhouses separated by vacant lots. “If you got into something you shouldn’t be doing, the next thing you know someone would be calling your grandparents.”

Mateo attended Sacred Heart School, graduated from Camden Catholic, and earned his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania.

He’s now a litigation partner in the Princeton office of the global law firm Reed Smith, where he mainly handles pharmaceutical clients. He has worked there since 1998.

“Dan is one of our finest attorneys,” says Nanette Mantell, team leader for the firm’s life sciences practice group in Princeton.

Despite his position and his election to head the bar group for a year, Mateo insists, “I don’t view myself as any different from any of the people who are living in Camden today.”

What’s missing for many young people in the city is “a real sense of what is possible,” he continues. “When poverty is concentrated, the worldview of the people living in poverty is very small.”

His friend and former Sacred Heart classmate Camden Mayor Dana Redd also believes it’s essential for city youngsters to “see the talent that has emerged” from their hometown. “I’m very proud of Dan, and proud that he held his installation dinner in Camden,” says Redd, who was a guest at the event, along with U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and other dignitaries. “I think it spoke volumes about him.”

The soft-spoken Mateo says he could never have imagined “working for one of the largest law firms” in the world when he was running (or perhaps, running away) on the streets of South Camden.

“The biggest lesson for me of having done well is that my world view has changed,” he says. “I think that’s what most parents want for their children – to give them lots of experiences as they grow up.”

That’s why he often brings his daughters, ages 9 and 12, along when he returns to South Camden for what he calls a “reality check.”

What the neighborhood taught him “is fundamentally about taking those street smarts and applying them to your life,” Mateo says. “It’s about perseverance, no matter what challenges you might face.”
