A well-known Toms River attorney has been nominated by Gov. Chris Christie to become a superior court judge.
Last week, Christie nominated Valter Must, currently a partner in the law firm of Carluccio, Leone, Dimon, Doyle & Sacks, to the court.
Must, a certified trial attorney who has represented numerous high-profile clients over the course of his career, was one of eight superior court nominations made by Christie last week. He was the only nomination to the Ocean County vicinage.
According to a biography on his firm’s website, Must graduated from Syracuse University in 1979 and earned his law degree from Seton Hall University Law School. He has also served in numerous local communities as municipal prosecutor.
Before becoming a judge, Must – like all nominees – must be approved by the state Senate Judiciary Committee and the full state senate.
