Peter Verniero is extensively quoted on the passing of New Jersey Justice Robert Clifford. "Verniero praised Clifford as a 'magnificent mentor' and credited him for his own positive attributes as a lawyers and a judge ... Clifford was a 'legal craftsman' in his judicial opinions and a 'stickler for grammar' because 'he knew at the end of the day the Supreme Court of New Jersey speaks through its opinions,' which must not only be fair but also clear and easy to understand."
