Prior Experience

As a law clerk for Justice Fabiana Pierre-Louis of the New Jersey Supreme Court, Pierre delved into areas of New Jersey and federal law ranging from the termination of parental rights to evidentiary and criminal procedure issues, both to make recommendations whether to grant petitions for certification and to aid the justice in writing opinions. He also researched parties' briefs and other court documents to prepare the court for oral arguments.

During law school, Pierre was an intern for the Hon. Esther Salas of the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey. He assisted the judge and her clerks with matters dealing with areas of law ranging from intellectual property law to civil rights. Pierre also was a member of the Rutgers Law National Trial Team, leading the team to its first national championship as the Best Advocate in Puerto Rico's 2021 Trial Advocacy Competition. He also was a founding member and the 2021 editor-in-chief of Rutgers Law's first peer-reviewed law journal, Rutgers International Law and Human Rights Journal.

Pierre was a summer associate at Faegre Drinker in 2019 and 2020.

Prior to his time at Faegre Drinker, Pierre worked in fitness, partnering with community organizations, commercial gyms and health service providers to serve clients in physical fitness and helping them meet their performance goals.
