Mary E. Bassett, Attorney at Law

"As a practicing attorney, MBA membership affords me a sense of community with my fellow practitioners. Together, we make a huge difference in so many lives. Regular programs like “Dial-A-Lawyer” and the Marathon Bombing Victims Legal Assistance Program are activities that show the legal profession in a positive light. I am most fulfilled by my involvement in the MBA's statewide Mock Trial program. If you want to spend a few hours a year acting as a judge or a lawyer coach for bright high school students in your community then volunteer and GET INVOLVED!"

“I joined the MBA while I was in law school at the urging of Jim Meehan and Warren Fitzgerald, my bosses at what was then known as Meehan, Boyle & Cohen. I had no idea then that the MBA would provide me with a wealth of knowledge, opportunities and lasting friendships. Through the MBA, I’ve encountered lawyers and judges alike who shine with integrity in the face of adversity and are fiercely committed to 'doing the right thing.' I’m honored and pleased to count many of them as my friends.”
