An avid bicyclist since she was five, Janine G. Bauer is now a lawyer and partner with the law firm Szaferman, Lakind, P.C., in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. She focuses her practice on environmental, land use and transportation matters in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. She is general counsel to the APA-NJ Chapter and a “grass-tops” volunteer with AARP, where she successfully lobbied NJ’s Congressional delegation to sign onto the national Complete Streets bill. From 1993-2003, Janine was the executive director of the Tri-State Transportation Campaign, a leading non-profit group headquartered in New York City, where she advocated for more capital investment to create a seamless, sustainable, transit-oriented transportation network. Blending her trial lawyer skills and knowledge of transportation regulations and guidance allows Janine to opine with confidence to clients and audiences about what may, and what won’t, create risk of liability for public entities and their engineers and planners, when designing Complete Streets.
