Attorney Len Foy is the President of Sunset Settlement Company, LLC. Len is very fortunate to have had an exciting and rewarding legal career, working alongside some of the best lawyers in the business.
Len got his real start in 1990, as a senior at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida. Len was selected for a legal internship at the West Palm Beach Public Defender's Office. Len's mentor during this time was attorney Jerry Justine, with whom Len worked closely on a number of high-profile capital murder cases in Palm Beach County. Len also conferred on numerous occasions with the Palm Beach County Public Defender, Richard "Dick" Jorandby, and sat in on several high-profile felony trials. (Jerry Justine is prominently featured in "The Wrong Man - A True Story of Innocence on Death Row," by Michael Mello.)
Len began law school at New England Law School in Boston, Massachusetts in August 1991. Len excelled academically during his first year, and was offered a clerkship at the Dorchester District Court working under Judge Robert P. Ziemian during the summer of 1992. Len was asked to participate in the criminal prosecution of celebrity Mark Wahlberg, following a melee involving Wahlberg and two other men at the Savin Hills tennis courts in August 1992.
