Craig Jeffrey Huber

After clerking in the Federal District Court of New Jersey with the Honorable Mitchell Cohen Craig served as a Deputy Attorney General (“DAG”) for 9 years.

As a DAG he represented the State in tort and contract matters a number of which went to jury trials and he also handled any appeals.  Subsequently, he prosecuted child abuse and neglect matters for the Division of Youth & Family Services and many of these cases were resolved by non-jury trials.  Thereafter, he served as lead counsel for the newly created Office of the Public Guardian where he protected the rights of the disabled elderly.  Finally, he served as a unit leader representing the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) and the Hackensack Meadowlands Commission in both litigation and regulatory matters.  While serving as a unit leader he also served as chief counsel and prosecutor for the New Jersey Racing Commission (“NJRC”).  As counsel for the NJDEP and NJRC he litigated matters in both the Superior Court and Office of Administrative Law (“OAL”)

Since joining Archer in 1990, Craig has focused his work on handling environmental litigation, insurance coverage, land use,  and regulatory matters.  He has litigated matters in both the Federal and State Courts as well as the New Jersey OAL.  His experience also includes representing clients before zoning and planning boards as well as in municipal court.  His practice also includes advising clients on environmental issues associated with real estate and commercial transactions. His work involves interaction and representation of clients in matters involving both governmental agencies such as the USEPA, NJDEP and local agencies, as well as private parties.  He also represents clients in commercial litigation matters.
