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.
