Read BBA President Jon Albano’s Letter in Support of the HAVEN Act

BBA President Jonathan Albano has written a letter to the Massachusetts Congressional Delegation in support of the Honoring American Veterans in Extreme Need (HAVEN) Act of 2019:

I write as President of the Boston Bar Association (BBA), a volunteer organization of nearly 13,000 members drawn from private practice, corporations, government agencies, legal-aid organizations, the courts, and law schools. Our mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion. I am writing to respectfully request your support for the Honoring American Veterans in Extreme Need Act of 2019 (HAVEN Act), S. 679, as introduced by Sen. Baldwin.

The Boston Bar Association traces its origins to meetings convened by John Adams, who provided pro bono representation to the British soldiers prosecuted for the Boston Massacre and went on to become the nation’s second president. Its mission is to advance the highest standards of excellence for the legal profession, facilitate access to justice, serve the community at large and promote diversity and inclusion.
