Two other Gibbons attorneys have previously won this prestigious award – Michael R. Griffinger in 2010 and John T. Dolan in 1995.

TANJ is a nonprofit organization that provides members with a wide range of services, including legal education, leadership, and advocacy on issues that affect the quality of life of lawyers, judges, and litigants in the civil and criminal courts throughout New Jersey, as well as a forum for plaintiff and defense trial lawyers to share ideas to advance the common interests of the entire Trial Bar.

“This award showcases Christine’s dedication not only to Gibbons, but to her clients and to the legal profession at large,” says Patrick C. Dunican Jr., Chairman and Managing Director of Gibbons. “Through her exceptional employment litigation practice, in-depth engagement with professional organizations and unwavering dedication to the advancement of women throughout the legal and business communities, she has undoubtedly earned this honor.”

She is listed among the region’s leading employment lawyers by Woodward/White Best Lawyers®, the Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, and Thomson Reuters New Jersey Super Lawyers, which lists her among the top 100 attorneys and top 50 female attorneys in the state. In addition, Ms. Amalfe has been listed as a “State Litigation Star” in Benchmark Litigation, named one of the “Best 50 Women in Business” in NJBIZ, and featured as one of Profiles in Diversity Journal’s “Women Worth Watching.” She was elected an At-Large Trustee of the New Jersey State Bar Association and serves as a member of the Executive Committee of the NJSBA’s Labor & Employment Law Section. In November, she will be installed as a Fellow in The College of Labor and Employment Lawyers.
