Veer Patel’s Past Experience

Veer Patel is extremely grateful for the late Hon. Sherry Hutchins Henderson, Judge of the Superior Court. He cites his clerkship in her chambers in the Essex Vicinage as one of the best professional experiences of his career (and it is for many attorneys who choose clerkships prior to the practice of law). Writing opinions, researching case law, observing side/bar and in chambers conversations, handling the jury, managing Sheriff Officers assigned to the Court, and getting to know and work with Court staff have all undeniably contributed to his success as an attorney and litigator. 

He has also served as the Correspondence Secretary for the City of Newark, where his responsibility was to liaise between citizens, government officials (local, state and federal), and local institutions (non-profit organizations, universities, local businesses, etc.). These conversations and communications exposed Veer Patel to the unique circumstances and messaging required to achieve the goals of the City Government while advocating for positive change in the communities by leveraging his relationships with government and community leaders. 

Veer Patel has always been passionate about working with non-profit organizations because of their unique and selfless missions. His work with Federal Senator Cory A. Booker led him to a non-profit, Volunteer Lawyers For Justice, that was supported and cherished in the Mayor’s office. The organization provided exposure to various clients from underserved communities that allowed him to “cut his teeth” with challenging factual circumstances. He is most thankful to VLJ for teaching me the empathy required to deal with the most difficult situations with grace.
