Tracey Salmon-Smith Honored With Garden State Bar Association’s Oliver Randolph Award

Business litigation partner Tracey Salmon-Smith was honored by the Garden State Bar Association with the “Oliver Randolph Award,” named for prominent civil rights advocate and attorney Oliver Randolph who, in 1914, became the first African American admitted to practice law in New Jersey. As the only Black delegate to attend New Jersey’s 1947 Constitutional Convention, Mr. Randolph fought for an amendment abolishing segregation in public schools and the militia. The amendment was ultimately adopted and became a part of New Jersey’s Bill of Rights. The Oliver Randolph Award was created to celebrate the legacy of this attorney and civil rights advocate.

As a partner based in the firm’s Florham Park office, Salmon-Smith assists clients with commercial and business disputes, employment litigation, securities law and internal investigations. She also serves on the firm’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee and on the Board of Trustees of Volunteer Lawyers for Justice, in addition to many leadership roles in civic organizations and professional associations.

Salmon-Smith will be honored at the Garden State Bar Association’s 49th Anniversary Scholarship & Awards Gala on June 29 at Maritime Parc in Jersey City, NJ.

This award is conferred by the Garden State Bar Association. A description of the selection methodology is available here. No aspect of this advertisement has been approved by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
