Hoens, Driven Early From Bench, Led N.J. Court in Critical Rulings

, New Jersey Law Journal


Long, who retired last year and is now with Fox Rothschild in Princeton, served for six years alongside Hoens and calls her “everything that a judge or justice could possibly be. She’s hardworking, she’s brilliant, she’s compassionate and she has the ability to make accessible to the reader really complicated ideas, a great talent that everybody doesn’t have.”

She also describes Hoens as collegial, effective at bringing people together on an opinion and funny and great to be around. Long notes that Hoens has traveled to places like Haiti and Africa to try to improve people’s lives, and calls it “heartbreaking that she is lost to the court at this point.”

As for Hoens’ comment about history judging her work, Long says “history is going to treat her extremely favorably.”
