WARREN, NJ – Evergreen Partners, Inc. – New Jersey’s leading public relations firm specializing in reputation management, crisis communications and event planning – is proud to announce that Karen J. Kessler, President of the firm, has been appointed to the New Jersey Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct.
The Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct assists the Supreme Court in investigating allegations of unethical judicial conduct and by referring to the Court those matters that the Committee considers to require public disciplinary action. Judicial misconduct is behavior by a judge that violates the Code of Judicial Conduct, as determined by the ACJC and the Supreme Court, and includes a wide range of conduct, from improper language in the courtroom and simple discourtesy to bribery.
Ms. Kessler’s firm, Evergreen Partners, counsels individuals and both private and public companies on matters of sensitive issues ranging from legal inquiries, personnel matters, business practices and general opportunities for increased visibility. Evergreen Partners has been cited for over a decade as one of New Jersey’s top public relations firms by NJBIZ.

She was cited as “the most sought after woman in New Jersey when things go wrong” by the Star-Ledger.
In addition to her work at Evergreen Partners, Ms. Kessler serves as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Atlantic Health System, a leading health system in NJ comprised of three major medical centers, Morristown, Overlook and Newton. Earlier this year, she was named Chair of the Board of AllSpire Heath Partners, an alliance of 25 of the best hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania with combined revenue of $10.5 billion.
