New Jersey Estate Litigation Attorney Contributes to Burlington County Legal Community Initiatives

Moorestown, NJ (Law Firm Newswire) February 21, 2012 - New Jersey estate and trust litigation attorney Ethan Ordog is having a very busy 2012. Between client meetings and court cases, he's also very active in the legal community. Recently, he co-chaired the Burlington County Mock Trial Competition where nine high school teams competed in a fictional trial. The high school students got to be attorneys, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses to better understand the U.S. legal system.

“More than 35 members of the bar volunteered to help the students coordinate the event and coach and judge them,” said Ordog, who also is a New Jersey guardianship attorney at Begley Law Group. “The students show great promise and leadership skills.”

Ordog also has been busy as the Chairperson of the Burlington County Bar Association probate committee. The committee reviews a variety of practice points, meets with the Judge of the Probate Court to review procedure and process., and hosts guest speakers at monthly meetings. As the Chairperson, Ordog schedules seminars presented by the committee, coordinates general communications with the bar and bench, and encourages members of the bar to participate in events.

“The committee is always looking at ways to promote and advance the field of probate and estate planning,” said Ordog. “Our members are devoted to quality legal services and promoting better understanding of the problems people face and how the justice system can improve.”
