Formerly a Judge of the Atlantic County Superior Court of New Jersey, Judge Robert Neustadter (retired) is Chairman of Cooper Levenson's Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) Practice Group. In his role as 'Of Counsel' to the firm, Judge Neustadter evaluates cases and performs mediations, arbitrations, and other methods of resolving disputes. In addition, he advises on transactional real estate and negligence matters.
Judge Neustadter first took the oath of office as a Superior Court Judge in 1976. He served in the Civil and Family Divisions, but mostly in the Criminal Division over the past 25 years. During his tenure on the bench, he was appointed by the New Jersey Supreme Court to serve on the Intensive Supervision Program's (ISP) Resentencing Panel. This panel of judges hears applications for early release by inmates serving sentences in our state prisons.
The move to serve as counsel to Cooper Levenson brings Neustadter full circle. In 1963, his firm, Perskie and Neustadter, merged with Cooper and Katzman, which has grown and transformed to become the firm known today as Cooper Levenson.
Judge Neustadter is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School (B.S. Economics 1953) and the University of Pennsylvania Law School (J.D. 1956). He was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1957 and to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1966. He has served as President of the Atlantic County Bar Association. In addition, he was a member of the Atlantic County, New Jersey State, and American Bar Associations.
