Paul J. Linker, Esq., was admitted to the practice of law in 1975, following graduation from the Temple University Law School, where he served as a member and Notes Editor of the Law Review (then known as the Temple Law Quarterly). Earlier, he graduated cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania. Following law school, Paul served as Law Secretary to the Honorable Sidney M. Schreiber, Associate Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court; one of the most prestigious judicial clerkships a law school graduate can secure.
Upon completion of his clerkship, Paul joined the Newark law firm, Robinson Wayne & LaSala (subsequently renamed Robinson, Wayne, Levin, Riccio & LaSala), where he ultimately became and continued as a partner. Paul's practice at the firm centered upon complex civil and commercial litigations venued in the Law and Chancery Divisions of the Superior Court of New Jersey, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey, as well as in various Federal and state courts in other jurisdictions. Over the course of his career, Paul has appeared and argued on numerous occasions before the Appellate Division of the Superior Court, the New Jersey Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.
Paul continued with the Robinson firm (which, as the result of a 1990 merger, ultimately changed its name to Robinson & St. John), where he continued to practice in the areas of complex civil and commercial litigation until 1996. He then moved to Gruhin & Gruhin, P.A. Today, the primary focus of Paul's work continues in these same practice areas. Paul has also previously served on the Attorney Ethics Committee, having been appointed to that position by the Supreme Court of New Jersey.
