Mr. Needleman is frequently asked to speak to continuing legal education audiences and to the insurance industry on litigation-specific topics, trial practices and new developments.  His audiences are local, regional, national and overseas.  

A former law clerk to the Hon. Theodore Z. Davis, P.J. Ch., Camden County, Mr. Needleman has continued with his commitment to public service.  He is a past member of the Advisory Board of Directors of the CMT Association, co-chair of the ADR committee of the New Jersey Defense Association, and currently serves on the school board in his local township.
