named to "The Power List" published in the Dec. 28 issue of
Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. The MBA past presidents
include Leo V. Boyle (1990-91), Wayne A. Budd (1979-80) and Michael

General counsel of the largest statewide bar association for
more than 20 years, Healy is one of 81 on the roster of the state's
most influential attorneys. He was named "the person to see" about

his professional, likable style, Marty has built a countless number
of relationships on Beacon Hill in advocating for attorneys. In
