Jacqueline Leary Recognized with Pro Bono Rising Star Award

McLane Middleton attorney Jacqueline A. Leary received the New Hampshire Bar Association’s Pro Bono Rising Star Award.

In its remarks, the Bar called Jacqueline “a dynamic attorney with a can-do attitude focusing on family law, Jacqueline Leary joined Pro Bono soon after she became a member of the NH Bar in 2017.  She signed up for Divorce Camp that year and took on a case right away for a low-income client.  A few short years later in 2019, Jacqueline encouraged Pro Bono to offer a more advanced version of Divorce Camp, this time serving on the planning group as well as faculty for the successful training series.  As a volunteer with her own Pro Bono caseload, Jacqueline also co-counsels with other attorneys on their Pro Bono cases.  Her enthusiasm is contagious and her clients are fortunate to have her in their corner.  In both spirit and deed, Jacqueline exemplifies what it means to be a Pro Bono ‘Rising Star.’”

Jacqueline is an associate in the firm’s Litigation Department.  She is the Vice Chair of the Family Law Practice Group as well as a member of the Employment and Criminal Law Practice Groups.  In addition, she assists clients in a wide variety of other litigation matters, including commercial litigation.
