Lateral Attorneys

Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi requires all attorneys to be admitted to, or sit for, the New Jersey bar. In addition, we have a significant case load in New York state and strongly value admission to the New York bar. Admission to the federal courts for New Jersey and New York is encouraged.

The firm offers a structured professional development program, as well as a formal mentoring program. Attorneys are encouraged to attend outside seminars as a means of continuing education and client development. We also outline defined criteria for advancement within the firm.

Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi offers several committees and initiatives designed to ensure that its attorneys are involved not only in the operation of the firm, but also in the issues and activities that are important to them. This includes a member/associate committee and hiring committee, as well as our Diversity Initiative, Pro Bono Program and Women’s Initiative.
