McLane Middleton Honors Andrew Hamilton with Annual Jack B. Middleton Pro Bono Award

McLane Middleton is proud to recognize attorney Andrew R. Hamilton with the 12th annual Jack B. Middleton Pro Bono Legal Services Award for his outstanding commitment to serving citizens in need.

McLane Middleton created the award in support of its efforts to help ensure that all New Hampshire citizens, regardless of resources, have access to the justice system.  Since the firm’s inception almost a century ago, McLane Middleton has been a consistent leader in supporting the state’s most vulnerable constituents.  The award is named after Jack Middleton, who has worked tirelessly for more than 60 years giving back to those most in need. 

As the firm has grown into Massachusetts, its pro bono commitment has grown too, and now serves citizens of both New Hampshire and Massachusetts. 

“Andrew put in over 100 hours of pro-bono work on a case and achieved a significant financial settlement for a young family that compensated them for losses they suffered,” said Dennis Haley, the chair of the firm’s Pro Bono Committee, during the presentation of the award at the firm’s recent Colleague Recognition Reception, “For his work on this case and his demonstrated commitment to providing legal services to New Hampshire’s poor and under privileged citizens, we congratulate Andrew on this recognition.”

Andrew is an associate in the firm’s litigation department where he assists clients in a wide variety of civil and criminal matters in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts.  His primary focus is on complex commercial and land use litigation, especially in the renewable energy market where he has represented both plaintiffs and defendants in multi-million dollar disputes.  Andrew also works on civil rights matters, as they relate to religious discrimination and accommodation.
