Ms. Feldman is “of-counsel” to John Rue & Associates. This means that, although Lynne does not work for JR&A (she has her own firm; its website is here), the two firms have a close collaborative relationship, and regularly work together in the interests of children with disabilities. In short, the clients of both firms benefit from JR&A and Ms. Feldman’s relationship, permitting free consultation and collaboration to leverage synergies between their experience and capabilities.

Lynne D. Feldman, Esq. received her B.A. cum laude with honors and distinction from Tulane University in New Orleans in political science with an emphasis in constitutional law. She then received her M.A. in Public law and Government from Columbia University’s Graduate Faculties, also with an emphasis in constitutional law. Her writing and researching strengths placed her with the Senior Vice President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; as a senior speechwriter and researcher for a New Jersey senatorial candidate and with world-renowned philosopher Ken Wilber. While doing constituent outreach, she realized the public did not have a clear understanding of basic civics or how the judicial branch operated. With another advanced degree, she taught government and US History to high school students. Rather than engaging in top-down teaching, Feldman implemented experiential learning and investigated the latest learning research. She founded the Model UN clubs and a winning mock trial team. Soon the US Representative asked Feldman to organize and run a district-wide Model Congress. After the death of several students in drunk driving accidents, and prior to the national organization of MADD, Feldman led her students to lobby Trenton lawmakers over the issue of teen drunk driving, which led to a documentary about her and her students. Feldman went on to later realize a life-long dream and enter Law School. Graduating with honors, Deans List, and awards. In her first trial, she defended her client against the Death Penalty. Her success led to an extensive criminal defense practice, and later, she joined a matrimonial law firm, where she handled domestic violence and immigration issues.

Feldman returned to teaching and kept up a part-time law practice. She retired from teaching in 2008 and worked for an emerging on-line graduate school which she was to head as Vice-Chancellor. Her volunteer work expanded to include working with interfaith issues and comforting those in hospice. She began writing, editing, and publishing books, chapters in scholarly publications, and serving on the editorial review board of the Journal of Integral Theory and Practice. She has appeared before the NJ Appellate Court and argued before the NJ Supreme Court. In 2018 she was sworn in before the United States Supreme Court.
