Weber Grilled

Melissa Murphy Weber on life inside the courtroom and outside of politics 

There are a lot of adjectives that fit litigator and former state representative Melissa Murphy Weber, but perhaps the editors of the Pennsylvania Report, a political insiders newsletter, said it best: “multidimensional.” At 38, Weber has racked up a lifetime of experience in criminal and civil law, politics and sports. In college, she captained Denison University’s nationally ranked women’s lacrosse team. In law school at Widener, she won best brief and best advocacy awards in national …

The Good Samaritan

Tom Neuberger takes Isaiah’s mandate seriously

The Neuberger Firm in downtown Wilmington is small. Tom Neuberger, his son Steve, and two associates, Cheryl Hertzog and Rae Ann Warner, work from pleasant third-floor offices in a four-story office building in a city that’s a haven for corporate giants. But there’s nothing little about the cases they handle. At 59, Neuberger has taken on the Pentagon, the White House, the Catholic Church, DuPont, Delaware’s governor, the NCAA, the Cincinnati Reds and the INS. During his career, he has …

Fine Cutler

Larry Cutler's enthusiasm for life and matrimonial law knows no bounds

Laurence “Larry” J. Cutler works hard. As founder and managing partner of Cutler, Simeone, Townsend, Tomaio & Newmark, a Morristown matrimonial law firm, he has to. But he plays just as hard—dashing off to Montana a couple times a year to ride horseback or spending his weekends flying a Cessna Skyhawk through the skies of New Jersey. The man is in perpetual motion.   “What is surprising about Larry is that he has so many interests that he can keep going,” says Gary N. Skoloff of …

Lady Liberty

Shereen Chen is there for those trying to find their way to America

For many New Jersey immigrants — like the Chinese girl who escaped an abusive family, the orphaned refugees from Sudan or the Colombian couple forced to flee violent guerrillas — the enduring female symbol of freedom in America isn’t the Statue of Liberty. It’s Shereen Chen.   “The realization on someone’s face that they have received permanent residency in the United States, forever, is an amazing thing to witness,” she says. “I love what I do.”   As of counsel at …

The Suffragist

Few have done more to advance the cause of women's rights in New Jersey than Bonnie Frost

Bonnie Frost keeps a box of tissues handy in her Denville office. A divorce lawyer, she passes a handful across the desk to her clients as soon as tears begin to flow. "It's difficult," the happily married Frost admits. "I'm seeing these people at what is not the best time of their lives. Divorce is the second most traumatic event in a person's life, just after the death of a partner." Frost has handed out a ton of tissues in her 20 years of practice. She handles divorce, custody, domestic …

The Part-Time Partner

Joanne Soslow keeps her priorities in order

Monday through Thursday, Joanne Soslow is like any other lawyer at Morgan, Lewis & Bockius: She returns calls, drafts documents, rushes to meetings. But on Friday she has other things on her mind. Like Little League. Soslow is a pioneer in the legal community when it comes to finding time for both her career as a securities lawyer and her family, which consists of husband Tony and two sons, Jack and Robert, 8 and 6. After having her first child, she realized she couldn’t …

Cohan's Koan

Larry Cohan believes in the transforming power of yoga

It is the first yoga class of the new year and Larry Cohan is speaking to his group of limber pupils. “Stretch your lower back, your hips,” he says. “Bring your mind onto the mat with your body.” A paper lantern sheds soft light, and tinkling Asian music plays as Cohan directs a latecomer to a space up front. When the student hesitates, he jokes, “C’mon, am I that intimidating?”   As a yoga instructor, no. But as a trial attorney, perhaps. As managing partner at Anapol, …
