Michael F. Burke, Partner at Nutter McClennen & Fish LLP
"The mission of the Boston Bar Foundation includes promoting equal access to
justice for the underprivileged and fostering pro bono efforts by Members of the
Bar, both of which are critical to strengthening the judicial system of our
local community. By supporting the Boston Bar Foundation through the
Society of Fellows, I am honored to be giving back to the Greater Boston
community through the essential programs of the Foundation at a time when
funding challenges are jeopardizing public funding of basic legal services."
Russell J. Stein, Associate at Weil, Gotshal & Manges
"I joined the Society of Fellows in response to the current economic
conditions which highlight the need to support programs that maintain access to
legal services to the underserved. I am excited to be part of an
organization that provides a needed resource to so many worthy organizations
providing legal services to communities and individuals that might otherwise
slip through the cracks in the system."

"The Boston Bar Foundation's Fellows program
formalizes my support for the organization's efforts in providing funding for
legal services and educational opportunities for those who are most vulnerable
to the current economic conditions. As someone who has benefited
tremendously from the BBA in her own professional life, I appreciate the
opportunity to be involved in another wonderful aspect of the work of both the
BBA and the BBF as they evolve to meet the changing needs of both attorneys and
members of our surrounding community."
Karbert S. Ng, Senior Research Analyst at Massachusetts
House of Representatives
"Growing up, I was taught at an early age that
one's community is responsible for molding a person. As an adult, I’ve
realized one who comes from any community is responsible for giving back to
sustain that community. I joined the Boston Bar Foundation Society of
Fellows because it provides me an opportunity to give back to those most
vulnerable in our community."
