Lyndhurst, NJ – May 4, 2017– Scarinci Hollenbeck congratulates Associate Krystle Nova who has been honored by the New Jersey Law Journal as a New Leader of the Bar. Formerly known as “40 under 40,” this annual award is presented to young attorneys in the Garden State who have built accomplished careers and established themselves as leaders within their firms and organizations, as well as within the legal community as a whole. In choosing their honorees, the Law Journal conducts a rigorous evaluation process, managed by a panel of individuals from all corners of the legal profession.

In addition, she is a mentor for the Union City High School Pipeline Program and is a Trustee of the Hudson County Bar Association.

“I am proud and humbled to receive this honor along with the talented attorneys recognized this year and in past years. It would not have been possible without the mentorship and support of the wonderful colleagues I’ve worked with along the way,” said Ms. Nova.

John G. Geppert, Jr., Partner and Chair of the firm’s Public Law practice group, noted that “Krystle is definitely a ‘New Leader’ of the Bar, as reflected in her legal ability, commitment and positive attitude. The Scarinci Hollenbeck Public Law Group is fortunate to have Krystle as a member.”
