One of the most respected Attorneys General in modern state history was Arthur Sills, who served as the state's chief law enforcement officer through the entire eight years of Governor Richard Hughes' administration. Sills contracted polio when he was four years old, and as a young man he began traveling to Warm Springs, Georgia for treatment. There he became friends with another polio victim, Franklin D. Roosevelt. After attending Harvard Law School, Sills joined the law firm of David Wilentz, the legendary Middlesex County Democratic boss and a former Attorney General of New Jersey. He spent more than twenty years at the Wilentz firm before Hughes picked him to serve as Attorney General after the 1961 gubernatorial election. At age 43, he was among the youngest men to serve as state Attorney General. After leaving office in January, 1971, Sills founded his own firm, now known as Sills Cummis Epstein & Gross. He was one of Jim Florio's lawyers during the 1981 recount, and passed away after a stroke in 1982 at the age of 64.
