If you weren't able to join us at our Annual Dinner last month,
you missed an incredible event that had an energy that was
infectious. Between the beautiful weather, the sold-out crowd, the
well-deserved awards and a wonderful keynote by Attorney Mark
Geragos, the evening was the pinnacle event of our association
Legislators, judges and attorneys gathered at the Massachusetts
Bar Association's sold out Annual Dinner on May 7 to celebrate a
milestone year for the legal community -- a year in which lawyers
earned the right to engage in jury voir dire in Superior
Court for the first time.
At the dinner, the MBA honored House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo
with its 2015 President's Award and Massachusetts Superior Court
Associate Justice Dennis J. Curran with the Chief Justice Edward F.
Hennessey Award, for their exceptional contributions to the
administration of justice in the commonwealth.
For attorneys who want to start their own solo practices or
small firms, knowing where to begin is often the first
Attorney Marc L. Breakstone believes a practical place to start
is with this question -- What does success mean to you? That
question is often the way he begins "How to Start and Run a
Successful Solo or Small Firm Practice," a Massachusetts Bar
Association conference he has co-chaired for the past 20 years with
his law partner and MBA Past President David W. White.
