Peter Slocum

Counsel to the Attorney General
Peter Slocum joined the Office of the Attorney General in June 2016, where he currently serves as Counsel to the Attorney General. Slocum previously worked as an Assistant Counsel to the Governor, in which role he oversaw legislative and regulatory affairs for the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, the Department of Community Affairs, the Civil Service Commission, and the Division of Consumer Affairs. In that position Slocum advised the Governor on a wide assortment of state and federal issues, and negotiated legislation with both lawmakers and advocates.

Slocum also previously served as a Deputy Attorney General in the front office of the Division of Law, working on many of the top legal challenges facing the State of New Jersey during that time. In that role Slocum successfully tried to verdict numerous jury trials, and argued a test case before the New Jersey Appellate Division that ultimately resulted in the dismissal of dozens of claims against the State.

Immediately prior to rejoining the public sector, Slocum worked in Lowenstein Sandler LLP’s national litigation department. At the firm Slocum represented clients in both state and federal court, focusing on state-government issues.

In June 2016 Slocum was recognized by the New Jersey Law Journal as being one of the New Leaders of the Bar.

Slocum received his law degree magna cum laude from Seton Hall Law School, after which he clerked for Justice Barry T. Albin on the New Jersey Supreme Court. Slocum also holds an accounting degree magna cum laude from the Rutgers Business School. Slocum is licensed in New Jersey and New York, and is admitted to appear before the District of New Jersey, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals, the Southern District of New York, and the Eastern District of New York.
