Denville law firm Einhorn Harris today announces that Partners Gary R. Botwinick and Matheu D. Nunn have been named to the 2017 National Law Journal’s Divorce, Trusts & Estates Trailblazers List, a special supplement developed by the business arm of The National Law Journal.
The second annual honor recognizes the accomplishments of leading practitioners in the fields of Divorce, Trusts & Estates. Botwinick and Nunn were selected from a competitive field of nominees, all of whom have “changed the practice in their respective fields through innovative and exceptional legal strategies.” The supplement, which includes individualized profiles of all the honorees, is available in The National Law Journal’s May 2017 edition and online at http://www.nlj.com.
“We are proud of this prestigious recognition. It is extremely gratifying to see our attorneys recognized for the excellent work they do for their clients,” says Managing Partner Patricia M. Barbarito.
Gary Botwinick focuses his practice on taxation, trust and estate planning, estate administration, estate litigation, guardianships, special needs law, and business law. He is chair of the firm’s Taxation/Trusts & Estates Department. Botwinick’s career began in the IRS Manhattan District Counsel Office, where he tried civil cases before the U.S. Tax Court. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel and the former President of the Estate Planning Council of Northern New Jersey. Botwinick serves as a Trustee of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater MetroWest New Jersey, and as a member of the Board of the Grotta Fund for Senior Care. Additionally, he was appointed by Governor Chris Christie as a member of the New Jersey Israel Commission.
Botwinick is a frequent lecturer for the New Jersey Institute of Continuing Legal Education, as well as many other professional organizations including the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC), the Estate Planning Council of Northern New Jersey, the Estate Planning Council of New York City, and the Greater New Jersey Estate Planning Council. He has published articles in the New Jersey Law Journal and other publications on various estate planning subjects. Botwinick focuses his lecturing and writing on the interplay between the areas of estate planning and matrimonial law. He has published articles on the use of discretionary trusts for divorce protection, the unintended consequences of irrevocable life insurance trusts (ILITs) and qualified personal residence trusts (QPRTs) when clients divorce, and estate planning issues for same-sex couples. He has also lectured extensively on the effective use of prenuptial agreements, planning for a special needs child during a divorce, and estate planning for second marriages.
Matheu Nunn co-chairs the firm’s Appellate Practice Group and handles matrimonial litigation. Prior to joining the firm, he attended Rutgers School of Law (Camden), where he was an editor of the Rutgers University Law Review and graduated with honors. Following law school, Nunn clerked for the Hon. B. Theodore Bozonelis, A.J.S.C. (ret.) (2007-2008), and the Hon. Jack M. Sabatino, P.J.A.D. (2008-2009). He then worked for the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office in the Major Crimes and Appellate section. Within months of joining Einhorn Harris, Nunn was appointed to serve as Prosecutor of Morris Township, New Jersey, in 2012, a position he left when he became an elected official in Morris Township in 2016.
Since becoming a member of the bar in 2007, Nunn has handled more than 35 Appellate Division/Supreme Court cases, including six published cases. He has tried both jury and non-jury trials, and has moderated several Appellate/Supreme Court Practice seminars.
Nunn was recently selected by the New Jersey Law Journal as one of three finalists for the prestigious “Attorney of the Year Award.” The New Jersey Law Journal also recognized Nunn as a “New Leader of the Bar” in 2015. Nunn has also received an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell (the highest possible rating), and has been selected as a Super Lawyer Rising Star across three different practice areas: Family Law, Appellate Practice, and Criminal Law. Nunn also volunteers as a trustee for the Morris County Bar Association, a member of the New Jersey State Bar Appellate Practice Committee, and as an Early Settlement Panelist in Morris County.
