Rutgers Law School alumnus James DiGiulio has been appointed chief counsel to New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
DiGuilio will serve as Christie’s top legal advisor through the last six months of his final term in office before the winner of the November gubernatorial election takes office in January 2018.
DiGuilio, who had previously served as senior counsel for Christie, is returning to the administration to serve as Christie’s top legal advisor after working in private practice for about three months at O’Toole Scrivo in Cedar Grove, N.J.
A 2006 graduate of Rutgers Law, DiGuilio also earned a master of laws degree from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
DiGiulio replaces Gregory Acquaviva, who is now a New Jersey Superior Court judge.
