SOMERVILLE NJ - The Somerset County Bar Association has had a tough month.   In a very short span of time, the group has lost its office space in the Somerset County Courthouse, and has lost its Executive Director, Karen Bradley.

There will be a meeting of the general membership of the bar association tonight at the law offices of Norris, McLaughlin & Marcus in Somerville to discuss the loss of the association's office space.  Until June 2017, the association worked out of an office in the Somerset County Courthouse.  Its most recent office was located on the second floor of the Historic Courthouse.

In June 2017, the association lost its office space.   There has been no public explanation of the reason.

In July, the association hired a new executive director.  Nicole Solarek is a student in the paralgegal program at Raritan Valley Community College.  According to Bar Association President Michelle D'Onofrio, Solarek has a strong background in in computer programming and bookkeeping.  Solarek will finish her paralegal studies in December.
