Linda Wong received the Professional Lawyer of the Year Award, presented jointly by the Asian Pacific American Lawyers Association of New Jersey (APALA-NJ) and the New Jersey Commission on Professionalism in the Law. The award is presented annually to an attorney, who is well respected by others in her field and recognized for her character, competence and professional behavior.
APALA-NJ is a local branch of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) and is committed to promotion of Asian Pacific American representation in the all sectors of the legal community. The New Jersey Commission on Professionalism in the Law was created as a joint venture between the New Jersey State Board Association, the state and federal judiciary, and the three New Jersey law schools to promote the traditional values and sense of public responsibility that distinguish the legal profession.
The award will be presented at the Commission on Professionalism in the Law’s annual Professionalism Awards Luncheon on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at the Pines Manor in Edison, NJ.
