Yardley resident and lawyer at Fox Rothschild, James Kravitz, was recognized as “National Corporate Administrator of the Year” by Law Enforcement Against Drugs & Violence (L.E.A.D.), a nationwide nonprofit committed to protecting communities from drugs and violence.
The award was presented to Kravitz at L.E.A.D.’s seventh annual 21st Century Drug and Violence Prevention Training Conference in Atlantic City, N.J.
“We’re pleased to congratulate Jim on his outstanding work as our general counsel,” said Nick DeMauro, CEO of L.E.A.D. “He’s been an excellent resource to everyone involved in our program, and his role is critical in allowing our program to continue protecting students across the country from drugs and violence and, in turn, bridging the gap between police forces and communities.”
L.E.A.D. provides services “on the street” and “in the classroom” as it brings law enforcement and communities closer together. The “in the classroom” program is taught by 3,000 trained instructors in 41 states. L.E.A.D. has the only proven effective, law enforcement-focused anti–drug, anti–violence curriculum for K-12 students in the U.S. The L.E.A.D. curriculum is taught over the course of a 10-week program to educate youth on how they can make smart decisions without the involvement of drugs or violence.
Kravitz has been general counsel for L.E.A.D since its inception in 2014. He guides the program on legal issues such as contracts, regulatory and tax issues and other matters facing nonprofits, and he works closely with DeMauro and the board.
“I’m honored to have served as general counsel for L.E.A.D. for around eight years now, and my experience doing so has been nothing but rewarding,” said Kravitz.
