New Jersey Lawyer


In this President's Perspective column of New Jersey Lawyer magazine announcing the New Jersey State Bar Association's new mentor program, NJSBA President John E. Keefe Jr. emphasizes the value of mentors to junior lawyers and those just beginning their legal careers. Reflecting on his early career as a litigation associate at Wilentz, Goldman & Spitzer, P.A., Mr. Keefe describes the late shareholder Morris Brown as "a gentleman" that “exemplified what it meant to care for your clients and to serve the profession," and the late former Middlesex County prosecutor Warren Wilentz as "one of the great class acts of the bar."
