BBA Past President J.D. Smeallie launched the Statewide Task Force to Expand Civil Legal Aid in Massachusetts during his Presidency in 2012-2013. Under his leadership, the task force examined the unmet need for civil legal aid across the state and determined the most cost effective way to meet that need. Among those serving on the task force are the general counsels of five major Massachusetts based companies, a former president of one of our major universities, our attorney general, the governor’s chief legal counsel, the managing partner of one of our largest law firms, and the President of the Massachusetts Bar Association.
