Sherin and Lodgen participates in Talk to Hill for Legal Aid

January 29, 2021

Sherin and Lodgen attorneys joined hundreds of fellow attorneys, law students, and advocates on January 27, 2021, to urge lawmakers to protect state funding for organizations that provide civil legal aid to low-income Massachusetts residents during the Equal Justice Coalition’s “Talk to the Hill for Civil Legal Aid” virtual event. Conducted over Zoom to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the event was a modified version of the Coalition’s annual “Walk to the Hill.”

Douglas M. Henry, Sherin and Lodgen’s managing partner, and Beth A. Goldstein, chair of the firm’s Renewable Energy Practice Group, were co-captains for the firm’s team.
