The MBF is
excited to present Leo V. Boyle, partner at Meehan, Boyle, Black
& Bogdanow PC, with the 2013 Great Friend of Justice Award at
the annual meeting.
A trial attorney for more than 40 years, Boyle is nationally
known for his tireless advocacy on behalf of injured plaintiffs.
But his reputation is built on much more than his professional
success. Boyle has been committed to pro bono service and active in
professional associations his entire career. In his most publicized
volunteer effort, Boyle led the way to the creation of the
September 11th Victim Compensation Fund and the largest
pro bono initiative in history, through which over 1,700 lawyers
from across the country volunteered to assist approximately 2,000
9/11 victims with their settlements.
Boyle has been at the forefront of ensuring access to justice for
those most in need, promoting court reform, and changing lives for
the better. It is with great pride that the MBF honors Boyle with
this award in appreciation for his extraordinary leadership and
