Biographical Notes:
design element
Judge Barbara Byrd Wecker retired from the bench in 2006, after serving on the Superior Court of New Jersey for more than 20 years.  Her service included more than 10 years as a trial judge in the Family, Criminal, and Civil Divisions, and 10 years on the Appellate Division, where she authored more than 100 published opinions and over 1,000 unpublished opinions.  She has joined Greenberg Dauber Epstein & Tucker as Of Counsel and is the Chair of the Firm’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Department.  As a mediator qualified by the New Jersey Supreme Court under Rule 1:40, a certified member of the U.S. District Court (New Jersey District) panel of mediators and a member of the Bankruptcy Court's newly-created roster of mediators, Judge Wecker has become recognized for her skill in mediating a wide range of disputes.  She is an arbitrator on the American Arbitration Association’s commercial panel of neutrals and its large complex case panel, as well as the AAA's employment and healthcare payor-provider panels - roles for which her judicial experience is a significant asset.
