WASHINGTON, D.C., March 24, 2011 — (TLC News) — Three divorce lawyers and one employment lawyer who are original members of Ten Leaders have been appointed judges in state jurisdictions since 2005, according to Ten Leaders Project Manager Kristin Kahl.
All four — Employment lawyer Kathleen Tomlinson of Long Island, Linda Christopher of Rockland County, NY, Margaret Goodzeit of Warren County, N.J., and Eric Spevak of Camden County, N.J. — were inducted into Ten Leaders groups in New York and New Jersey in 2003.
The Hon. Linda Christopher was named to The Rockland County Family Court bench in 2004. In 2006 she began serving as an acting member of the New York State Supreme Court.
Maggie Goodzeit, a member of the Ten Leaders of Matrimonial & Divorce Law of Central New Jersey, was a partner at Greenbaum Rowe Smith & Davis in Iselin, N.J., prior to being tapped as a Somerset County Family Court Judge in 2007.
Finally, Eric Spevak of Haddonfield, N.J., was named an administrative law judge in 2009 by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.
All three are now listed as Alumni of Ten Leaders. The judicial appointments “certainly reflect the competence and integrity of the professionals inducted into Ten Leaders every year,” said Kahl, who is responsible for providing Ten Leaders profiles and related materials to the cooperative’s active members.
