2015 Criminal Trial Practice
Attorney of the Year

Sheree Pitchford, Esq.

Assistant Prosecutor

Sheree is a graduate (cum laude) of Saint Peter's University and Seton Hall Law School, (Centennial Scholarship recipient). While in college and law school, Sheree did internships with the Hudson County Prosecutor's office and with Hon. Frances L. Antonin, JSC, Criminal Division. Upon law school graduation she served as a law clerk for Judge Antonin.

Following her clerkship, Sheree was an assistant county prosecutor in Hudson County from 1998 to 2003 when she transferred to the Middlesex County Prosecutor's office.


Sheree’s skill in handling all aspects of criminal cases from case evaluation, grand jury presentation to trial as well as leadership potential were recognized early on. She was promoted to a trial team leader and later section chief for major crimes and now is section chief for the sex crimes/child abuse unit. She also is a member of the office's hiring committee and has organized a trial critique program for assistant prosecutors.


Sheree is co-chair of the Association's criminal practice committee and as such has formulated seminar programs, recruited speakers and has served as an informed and effective moderator of several seminars.  She has also served as a judge in the moot court competition.


Career and bar association achievements aside, what makes Sheree so appropriate to receive this award is her personal character which reflects so positively on what our association stands for. She is a shining example of the reality that civility can easily go hand in hand with effective lawyering. She is fair and balanced, and always courteous.  She is not only respected and genuinely liked by her peers in the prosecutor's office but by the criminal court judges and the criminal defense bar.
