Ex-GOP chairman joins Scarinci firm

Scarinci Hollenbeck, the North Jersey mega law firm headed by Democratic insider Donald Scarinci, continues to enhance their presence in Monmouth County, where Republicans are seeking a return to power after losing control of the Board of Freeholders in 2008. Former Monmouth County GOP Chairman Frederick Niemann is now with the firm's Freehold office, and current Republican County Chairman Joseph Oxley, a former Sheriff, is a partner in that office.

Four attorneys from Hanlon Niemann, Niemann's old firm, have joined Scarinci Hollenbeck.

Democrats have a 3-2 majority on the Monmouth Freeholder Board, with one of the Democratic seats up this year. Ex-GOP chairman joins Scarinci firm
