Discovery with Nola Rooney Bencze

Clark Hill’s Nola Rooney Bencze praises Post-its and wishes dancing psychologists were a thing

Published in 2017 New Jersey Super Lawyers magazine

If you were in my office, you’d … offer me a shovel. 

My pre-trial routine is … to eat and sleep with the file.

If I weren’t a lawyer, I’d be … a psychologist who likes to dance. 

The SCOTUS justice I’d like to meet is … Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

The SCOTUS decision I’d overturn is … Citizens United.

A different practice area that intrigues me is … entertainment law—maybe you could get some good invitations to Hollywood events! 

On weekends I … enjoy family, friends, golf and the outdoors.

My favorite song lyric is … “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometimes, well, you might find, you get what you need.” – Rolling Stones

The movie line I quote most often is … “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate.” – Cool Hand Luke

I wish I had invented … Post-it notes. (How did we do a deposition before?)

If I had a morning show, my co-host would be … Jon Stewart. 

The last TV show I binge-watched was … Ray Donovan

My guilty pleasure is … playing golf.

My favorite word is … serendipity. 

If I won the lottery … I’d pay all my and my family’s bills, and then travel the world playing golf.

The most annoying thing about my job is … time sheets. 

The best meal I ever had was … made in my own kitchen.
