Justice Rivera-Soto interned at the Office of the District Attorney of Delaware County, Pennsylvania in 1977. From 1978 to 1980, he worked as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Criminal Division of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He then worked for Fox Rothschild as a litigation associate until 1983. He then worked as senior vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary of Caesars World, Inc. and as vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary of Greate Bay Hotel and Casino, Inc. before returning to Fox Rothschild LLP as a partner. He was then appointed to the Supreme Court in 2004.
In 2007, the New Jersey Supreme Court voted 5-0 to censure Rivera-Soto for "creating an appearance of impropriety" after using his position to attempt to resolve a personal matter. The action came after the state's Advisory Committee on Judicial Conduct recommended the rebuke.
