Eric Wood shared his memories of Edward Knight with the New Jersey Law Journal in an article remembering the late U.S. Magistrate Judge.

Knight, who served as senior counsel in the firm’s Atlantic City office, passed away on April 12. He was 96.

“He was always an educator in everything he did. He wanted you to understand his thought process, and he would explain it to you,” Wood says. Wood says Knight impressed on his pupils the need for lawyers to be involved in community service and tried to match associates with activities he thought would interest them.
