Marcia K. Werner, the recipient of the 2016 Hon. Peter Ciolino Professional Lawyer of the Year Award from the Bergen County Bar Association has been practicing law in NJ for over 35 years. A native New Yorker who initially worked in the publishing industry, she moved to Bergen County, New Jersey, in the early 1970s. Ms. Werner graduated from Rutgers Law School with Honors. Admitted to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in 1986 , Ms. Werner argued on behalf of the Kiwanis Club of Ridgewood when it wanted to admit women to membership but was denied the right to do so by Kiwanis International. She was admitted to the United States Supreme Court in 1986 and filed an Amicus Curiae Brief in Board of Directors of Rotary International v. Rotary Club of Duarte– the case which did allow women to become members of hitherto all-male civic organizations. Throughout her career, Ms. Werner has concentrated her general practice in the areas of divorce, domestic violence, employment law, guardianship, and whatever interesting, unusual, or challenging civil matters happened to come along. After honing her skills as an Associate in a small Hackensack law firm, Ms. Werner formed a partnership in 1981 known as Newman & Baer. In 1985, Newman & Baer merged with Hirsch & Simpson, Esqs. to become Hirsch, Newman Simpson & Baer. In 1993, Ms. Werner opened her solo practice in Oradell, New Jersey. She is a litigator in the trial and appellate courts, a trained mediator, and a member of the Collaborative Divorce Association of North Jersey. Ms. Werner served a term as River Edge Zoning Board Attorney and has written panel reports and read bar exams for the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Character and the New Jersey Board of Bar Examiners.
