The firm handles a wide variety of cases, from multi-million dollar transactions and commercial litigation to personal matters involving individuals, their families, and their finances.

"Becoming a sponsor firm of the BBA solidifies our longstanding support of its programs," said Dolph Vanderpol, managing partner of Kotin Crabtree. "Our dedication to pro bono work and professional excellence is shared by the BBA, which makes a great partnership."

The Boston Bar Association is a non-profit, voluntary membership organization of 12,000 attorneys drawn from private practice, corporations, government agencies, legal aid organizations, the courts, and law schools. It traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, the lawyer who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the second president of the United States.
