New Jersey

The New Jersey Chapter of the Women's White Collar Defense Association was founded in July 2018 at a cocktail reception hosted by Danielle Corcione, member at Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi, West Orange.

The chapter is a forum for experienced women white collar defense lawyers to gather and discuss issues of significance in the white collar field. We meet several times a year and also host events open to the public.


The New Jersey Chapter accepts Law Firm Attorney Members and Consultant Members as defined:  

Law Firm Attorney Member: Women attorney private practitioners primarily practicing in the area of White Collar Defense and Investigations, defined as those who specialize in the representation of corporations, other organizations and individuals facing government enforcement actions (criminal, civil, regulatory, and administrative), and in internal investigations, compliance and ethics matters.   

Consultant Member: Women professionals who work at consulting firms (or non-attorney professionals who work at law firms), specialize in the White Collar Defense and Investigations field, and who otherwise qualify under the WWCDA membership criteria and offer support services and referral opportunities to attorneys in the practice. 

Some WWCDA and chapter events may be limited to women attorney private practitioner (law firm attorney) members only.  

All Members must have their primary work address in the same location as our chapter.
