Following her nomination by Governor Chris Christie and confirmation by the Senate, Justice Anne M. Patterson was sworn in as an associate justice by Chief Justice Stuart Rabner September 1, 2011. 

Justice Patterson was born in Trenton on April 15, 1959, and raised in Hopewell Township and Princeton. In 1980, she graduated magna cum laude from Dartmouth College, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She is a 1983 graduate of Cornell Law School, where she won the Cuccia Cup moot court competition. She was admitted to the New Jersey Bar in 1983. 

In 1983, Justice Patterson joined the law firm of Riker, Danzig, Scherer, Hyland & Perretti LLP as an associate. In 1989, Justice Patterson left Riker Danzig to serve as a deputy attorney general and special assistant to New Jersey Attorney General Peter N. Perretti, Jr., handling civil litigation and criminal appeals on behalf of the state. After rejoining Riker Danzig, Justice Patterson became a partner in the firm in 1992. Her practice focused on product liability, intellectual property and commercial litigation in state and federal trial and appellate courts. 

Justice Patterson served as Chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association Product Liability and Toxic Tort Section, as an officer and trustee of the Association of the Federal Bar of New Jersey, and as a trustee of the Trial Attorneys of New Jersey. From 1991 to 2006, Justice Patterson served on the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Character. Justice Patterson was awarded the William A. Dreier Award for Excellence in the Advancement of Product Liability and Toxic Tort Law and the New Jersey Commission on Professionalism's Professional Lawyer of the Year Award. She was elected to the New Jersey Fellows of the America Bar Foundation in 2011. Justice Patterson is a member of the Dean’s Advisory Council at Cornell Law School.

Below is a temporary biography of New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Anne M. Patterson. It is taken from the judiciary website. From personal experience after having argued several cases before Justice Patterson, I can tell you that, in my opinion, she is very pleasant, well-prepared, conservative, will ask questions that leave no doubt that she knows the file and the law, and, although I disagree with several of her decisions, she is a wonderful asset to the New Jersey legal community.
