MANCHESTER, NH—The law firm of McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton, Professional Association proudly announces that the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation (NHCLUF) recently honored attorneys Linda Johnson and Rachel Hampe for their pro bono work on a civil rights matter. The attorneys were recognized at the Foundation’s annual Bill of Rights dinner held at the Wayfarer Inn in Bedford, NH. Ms. Johnson is a director at the firm, chair of its Education Law Practice Group and co-chair of its Employment Law Practice Group. Ms. Hampe is an associate in the Litigation Department.

The NHCLUF dinner attendees included Senator Dodd from Connecticut, Norm D’Amour from D.C., many other attorneys and civil libertarians, including McLane attorney Robert Wells. According to Wells, “the case involving Stacy Perkins, a 9 year old female who was not allowed to play on a boy’s team at a tournament, took a great deal of effort on the part of our attorneys. It is this kind of diligence and dedication that makes me proud to be part of this firm.”

In 1986 the NHCLUF began recognizing attorneys who have defended a difficult civil liberties issue for the Foundation. According to Executive Director Claire T. Ebel, “the Stacy Perkins case has been a very long, difficult road for everyone involved. We owe attorneys Johnson and Hampe a great debt and public recognition is a small way of acknowledging such ability and arduous effort on behalf of principle.”
