“I have known Phil Kwon professionally for over 10 years. I handled multiple matters with him, including at least one trial, while he was an Assistant United States Attorney. As my adversary, I found Phil to be very prepared to deal with the issues at hand and felt he always treated me and my clients with respect. I believe Phil possesses a high level of character and integrity and I wholeheartedly support and endorse his nomination as a Justice to the New Jersey Supreme Court.”

“I have known Bruce and have worked with him for over 15 years. Together, we have worked on many important projects for the benefit of New Jersey governmental entities and not-for-profit corporations.
“You already know that Bruce has impeccable academic credentials. In addition, and more importantly, Bruce possesses the highest degree of professional and personal integrity. I have always found him to be a zealous advocate for his clients and at the same time fair, reasonable and respectful of all transaction participants. As a public finance attorney, Bruce is required to be expert in constitutional law, statutory interpretation, securities law, tax, contracts, commercial law, real estate and a host of other disciplines.

“I am familiar with the legal abilities and the professional character of Phil Kwon because I have been involved in various matters in which he was my adversary while he was an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey. At least two cases were high-profile prosecutions of public officials.
“Mr. Kwon was extremely well-respected by the Court as someone who had significant knowledge and understanding of the Hobbs Act and other relevant law. I personally interacted with him on numerous occasions and found that he was a highly intelligent and capable lawyer whose character and integrity as a prosecutor were unparalleled.
“In my humble opinion, I cannot think of a person who would be a more qualified nominee.”
