Lloyd Freeman, an attorney with Archer & Greiner P.C., has been elected to serve on the Board of Directors of the Garden State Bar Association (GSBA), which works to enhance and improve the status of minority attorneys in New Jersey.
As a Board member, Mr. Freeman is responsible for, among other things, helping to establish and implement the policy and direction of the GSBA; interpret the GSBA’s goals, methods and objectives, both to the legal community and the community-at-large; and provide continuity of experienced leadership, so that changes do not weaken the effectiveness of the Association.
“Lloyd was been an invaluable asset to the GSBA this past year displaying his strong work ethic and bountiful creativity,” GSBA President Steve G. Hockaday said. “Lloyd was nominated to join the GSBA leadership as a member of the board of directors for the 2013-2014 bar year so that his abilities can serve to steer the GSBA in years to come.”
“One of the primary goals for the GSBA this year is to turn ourselves outward towards the community and our law students in the state,” Mr. Hockaday added. “Lloyd will be instrumental in this effort as social media coordinator for the GSBA and as a mentor in our Reaching Back as We Climb Mentorship initiative.”
An affiliate of the National Bar Association, the nation’s oldest and largest association of African American lawyers and judges, the GSBA assists African-Americans and other ethnic minorities in becoming an effective part of the judicial and legal systems. The Association seeks to advance the science of jurisprudence, improve the administration of justice, support initiatives designed to improve economic condition of all individuals, and eliminate discrimination and inequality based on racial, ethnic or sexual considerations. The GSBA establishes programs and projects to pursue, support and facilitate the implementation of these goals.
Mr. Freeman currently holds numerous leadership positions with professional and civic organizations, including as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Burlington, Camden & Gloucester Counties, and as a member of the Rutgers Law Pro Bono/Public Interest Advisory Committee and the Rutgers Law Alumni Association Board of Directors.
Highly active in civic and charitable causes throughout the region, Mr. Freeman, of Sicklerville, N.J., practices litigation in state and federal courts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
