MORRISTOWN, NJ—Leonard Legal Group announces today that its founder and one of the most respected personal injury attorneys in New Jersey, Scott Leonard was inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) and the Northern New Jersey Chapter of ABOTA.  The ABOTA recognizes his dedication to the preservation of a fair and impartial judiciary system, and has inducted him to further impact American communities at a national and local level. The Leonard Legal Group celebrates Leonard’s ABOTA membership as a reflection of his unwavering commitment to clients, high professional standards and passion for the legal profession.

“I am honored and excited to be a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates,” said Leonard. “As part of this organization, I can actively use my experience to promote its mission, and have an even greater impact on America’s legal system.”

The ABOTA is one of the nation’s most respectable legal organizations, of which its specific purposes are to elevate the standards of integrity, honor and courtesy in the legal profession, aid in further education and training of trial lawyers, establish positive relationships with other associations in order to promote the constant improvement of law, and cultivate a spirit of loyalty, fellowship and professionalism among fellow lawyers. Since 1957, ABOTA has sought attorneys who display skill, civility and integrity. Its purpose is to help younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy, educate the public about the meaning and importance of the Seventh Amendment, and preserve the concept of “Justice by the People.”

Since graduating from Widener University School of Law in 1996, Leonard has become an exceptional trial attorney, receiving Board Certification by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney, an achievement obtained by fewer than two percent of all New Jersey attorneys. His achievements also include nine years honored as a Super Lawyer by New Jersey Super Lawyers, being named one of the ‘Top 100 Trial Lawyers in New Jersey by The National Trial Lawyers for four consecutive years. Leonard’s professional associations, memberships and pro bono activities are vast, and he shares his legal wisdom through speaking engagements throughout New Jersey.  In addition to his contributions as an attorney, Mr. Leonard proudly serves in his community as a volunteer EMT.
