On March 24, the Law Office of David Neufeld and the wealth management firm of Traust Sollus co-hosted a luncheon at TPC Jasna Polana Country Club. The speaker was Martin Shenkman, whose "RV 4 The Cause" program takes him to cities around the country to speak on the legal and financial planning aspects to be considered for and by individuals dealing with a chronic illness, such a MS. It was attended by over 70 area professionals, as well as Mayor Hsing Fu Hseuh of West Windsor, NJ who presented Marty with a proclamation. The charities present were the MS Society and the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research.
It does not come with a cape and tights, but when Princeton tax and estate planning attorney David Neufeld was selected for this year’s New Jersey Super Lawyers® list it was a major honor nevertheless.
By being named to the Super Lawyers list, as announced in the current issue of New Jersey Monthly, David joins a group that includes just 5% of all lawyers in New Jersey. The list is compiled by Super Lawyers Magazine after a rigorous multi-step selection process. According to Superlawyers.com, “Super Lawyers Magazine names attorneys in each state who received the highest point totals, as chosen by their peers and through independent research.”
“No I cannot leap tall buildings in any number of bounds,” said Mr. Neufeld when asked about this most recent of accolades given him, “but I am always grateful when my legal accomplishments are recognized by my peers and organizations such as Super Lawyers.”
Recognition such as this is not new to Mr. Neufeld in his quarter century of practicing tax law and estate planning since graduating from the NYU School of Law with an LL.M in Tax. He has been honored with, among other things, the Advocacy Award by the New Jersey State Bar Association and has been deployed on specialized projects on behalf of the American Bar Association.
In addition to David’s law career, he has a successful hobby as a stand-up comic. Perhaps David’s next honor will be New Jersey’s Funniest Super Lawyer.
