Philadelphia – July 20, 2018 – Partner Leonard S. Baker of Greenblatt, Pierce, Funt and Flores, LLC spoke last month at the 73rd annual American Legion Jersey Boys State, which was held on the Rider University campus in Lawrenceville, NJ. Making his 13th appearance at the program, Baker participated in a session on “Careers in the Legal Profession,” sharing tips and experiences and the many different types of opportunities available in the law. New Jersey Supreme Court Justice Lee Solomon served as a fellow panelist.
The Boys State program, founded in 1935, is a week where a select group of high school-aged youth come together to better understand citizenship and government through operating as a mythical fifty-first state. Legislators are elected, a newspaper is published daily, educational and recreational programs are held, and industry and government leaders are invited to speak at general assemblies.
Baker, who is the director of WGP’s New Jersey office, has devoted his career to developing a formidable criminal defense practice. He has experience throughout the New Jersey court system and has litigated every type of criminal case, from capital murder to robbery, firearms offenses and drug conspiracies. A respected industry leader, he served as an Adjunct Professor of Criminal Law at Rutgers School of Law in Camden for 25 years. Additionally, he represents law enforcement officers as approved counsel by the Police Benevolent Association.
