McLane Middleton attorney, Joel Sherman, was recently recognized by the Boston Bar Foundation Society of Fellows for his work as co-chair of the Grants Committee for the past five years.
The Boston Bar Foundation is the official charity of the Boston Bar Association whose mission is to promote justice by funding and promoting innovation in legal services, enhancing access to justice for the underserved, and supporting the public interest activities of the bar. The Society of Fellows is a group of nearly 400 attorneys who are dedicated to expanding access to justice and improving the Boston community through the Boston Bar Foundation.
The Grants Committee distributes $950,000 in grants to legal service organizations in the greater Boston area.
