As Special Assistant, Schultz focused on managing some of the State’s high-priority cases and investigations as well as providing legal advice to the Governor’s Office and various Departments regarding some of the State’s largest and most significant initiatives, including the Medical Marijuana Program and the reorganization of Rutgers, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, and Rowan University.

In addition to his public sector experience, Schultz has 10 years of private sector experience as a commercial litigator having worked as an associate at Budd Larner, P.C. and Greenberg Traurig, LLP, and eventually as a partner at Parker, Ibrahim & Berg LLC. During his time at those firms and others, Schultz represented clients ranging from multinational corporations to small businesses at the trial and appellate levels in New Jersey and New York state courts and federal courts throughout the country. The cases he handled touched upon a wide range of areas including complex contract disputes and business torts across various industries. He also handled compliance, regulatory and transactional matters.
Schultz graduated from Vanderbilt University in 2001 and received his law degree from Seton Hall University School of Law cum laude in 2004 as a member of the Seton Hall Law Review. Schultz is licensed to practice in New Jersey and New York, and is admitted to appear before the District of New Jersey.
