On January 3, 2018, Matheu D. Nunn, Esq., a partner with Einhorn Harris, was sworn-in as the Deputy Mayor of Morris Township, New Jersey. Nunn will serve a one-year term alongside Morris Township’s Mayor, Peter V. Mancuso.
“Together with Mayor Mancuso, we hope to continue Morris Township’s designation as one of the most affordable places to live in New Jersey,” says Nunn. (New Jersey Monthly -August, 2017 and NJ.com -September, 2017).
Matheu Nunn co-chairs the firm’s Appellate Practice Group and handles matrimonial litigation. He’s a graduate of Rutgers School of Law (Camden), where he was an editor of the Rutgers University Law Review and graduated with honors. Nunn clerked for the Hon. B. Theodore Bozonelis, A.J.S.C. (ret.) (2007-2008), and the Hon. Jack M. Sabatino, P.J.A.D. (2008-2009). After his clerkship, he joined the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office in the Major Crimes and Appellate section. Within months of joining Einhorn Harris, Nunn was appointed to serve as Prosecutor of Morris Township, New Jersey, in 2012, a position he left when he became an elected official in Morris Township in 2015.
Since becoming a member of the bar in 2007, Nunn has tried jury and bench trials and has handled more than 35 Appellate Division/Supreme Court cases across a range of practice areas, including six published, precedent-setting cases. Most recently, in August 2017, Nunn prevailed in the child-relocation case of Bisbing v. Bisbing, 230 N.J. 309 (2017), which resulted in the New Jersey Supreme Court reversing nearly two-decades of cases involving the removal of children from New Jersey following a divorce. Nunn’s other published decisions include Quinn v. Quinn, 225 N.J. 34 (2016); In re Child by J.E.V., 226, N.J. 90 (2016); Bisbing v. Bisbing, 445 N.J. Super. 207 (App. Div. 2016); In re Adoption of Child by J.E.V., 442 N.J. Super. 472 (App. Div. 2015); and Clark v. Clark, 429 N.J. Super. 61 (App. Div. 2012).
In 2017, the New Jersey Law Journal selected Nunn as one of three finalists from the entire state for the prestigious “Attorney of the Year” award; the National Law Journal also named Nunn as one of less than 30 “Trailblazers” in Divorce law in the entire country. Nunn was also recognized by the New Jersey Law Journal as a “New Leader of the Bar” in 2015. Nunn has also received an AV Preeminent Rating from Martindale-Hubbell (the highest possible rating), and has been selected as a Super Lawyer Rising Star across three different practice areas: Family Law, Appellate Practice and Criminal Law. Nunn also volunteers as a trustee for the Morris County Bar Association, a member of the New Jersey State Bar Appellate Practice Committee, and as an Early Settlement Panelist in Morris County.
