Sheff at Barnstable Bar
MBA President Douglas K. Sheff spoke at the Barnstable County Bar
Association's 2013 Fall Bench and Bar Dinner on Thursday, Oct. 3.
The event, at Alberto's Ristorante in Hyannis, is a longstanding
Barnstable Bar tradition and serves as an opportunity for members
of the county bar to come together and hear from different members
of the legal profession. This year, in addition to Sheff's
comments, attendees heard from Trial Court Chief Justice Paula M.
Sheff discussed the MBA's initiatives for the upcoming year and
spoke fondly of Barnstable County - his first job out of law school
was as an assistant district attorney there. Sheff thanked many of
his mentors from the Cape & Island's District Attorney's Office
and explained the immeasurable benefits he received from his first
job, his first trial experience and the wonderful people he
interacted with while in Barnstable.
