Massachusetts Bar Association President Douglas K. Sheff, Treasurer Robert W. Harnais and Director of Policy and Operations Lee A. Constantine participated in American Bar Association Day in Washington, D.C., on April 9, 2014.

ABA Day gathers bar leaders from across the country to lobby their congressional delegations on issues of importance to the organized bar. The MBA has participated in ABA Day since its inception more than 15 years ago.

This year, ABA Day focused on funding for the Legal Services Corporation, and opposition to draft tax reform legislation that would create substantial tax burdens on law firms and other types of personal service businesses by fundamentally changing the manner in which they pay taxes.
