An Indian-American has made the cut into the judiciary of Bergen County, New Jersey. Indian-American Gurbir Singh Grewal was appointed and has taken over as the prosecutor of Bergen County.
Grewal’s appointment and take-over comes more than two years after being nominated by New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to become the next prosecutor of Bergen County. Grewal officially took over the reins on 4 January this year.
Grewal succeeded the departing John Molinelli who completed his 14-year tenure on 31 December 2015.
Grewal, a resident of Glen Rock, N.J, is the first Sikh American to serve as a county prosecutor.
Grewal has had a long-standing career in law. Aged 42, he has served in several capacities before he joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 2010. He also enjoys tenure as the chief of the Economic Crimes Unit in Newark.
Grewal’s takeover of the new role met with glowing feedback. State Sen. Kevin O’Toole, whose district includes Bergen County, opined that “He’s an extraordinary talent. He’s very thorough and very fair. He doesn’t have a political bone in his body.”
Fluent in Punjabi and Hindi languages, by background Grewal is a graduate of Georgetown University and earned a law degree from the Marshall-Wythe School of Law at The College of William & Mary. Grewal also has presidency-experience having led the South Asian Bar Association of New York. He is also a member of the New Jersey Asian Pacific American Lawyers Association.
