At Cooper Levenson, we believe our future rests in our collective ability to embrace change and leverage diversity through our leadership, employment, and continued community support. We believe that diversity is critical to our business strategy, to our relationships with our clients and employees, and will improve our competitiveness and prospects for long-term success.
The firm is a member of the New Jersey Law Firm Group, which is comprised of New Jersey Law firms, corporate legal departments, governmental agencies and public interest organizations that recognize the importance and advantages of diversity in not only serving the needs of clients but also in enhancing the legitimacy and public image of the legal profession. Each year, this organization provides a fellowship, a job fair, mentor programs and roundtable discussions at each of New Jersey's law schools to demystify the recruitment process and to encourage participation in the groups programs.
Committed to diversity issues since its very inception, firm founder James Cooper was a member of President Kennedy's Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, having litigated civil rights cases in Mississippi in 1966. One of our attorneys served on the New Jersey Supreme Court Committee on Minority Concerns and is an active member of the Association of Black Women Lawyers. One of our attorneys was the first woman president of the Atlantic County Bar Association. Another of our attorneys was honored for his distinguished service to the New Jersey Asian Pacific American community and serves as the first Asian American to serve in the role of President of the Burlington County Bar Association.
Cooper Levenson is proud of this commitment to diversity among its clients, its employees and its community support.
