Supreme Judicial Court to Present Clients’ Security Board’s William J. LeDoux Award to Newbury Attorney

WHAT:         
Supreme Judicial Court Justice Francis X. Spina will present the Clients’ Security Board’s William J. LeDoux Award to Newbury attorney Timothy J. Perry for representing the co-executors of a $2 million probate estate from which their former lawyer, now disbarred, misappropriated $47,500 in unearned legal fees as well as the proceeds of a $75,000 unsecured, no-interest loan.

Created in 1997, the award honors an attorney who, serving pro bono, has demonstrated outstanding legal work in representing a claimant before the Board. It is not a yearly award.

Attorney Perry is a founding partner of Perry, Krumsiek & Dolan, LLP. He has conducted jury trials at all levels of the state and federal court systems as well as arbitrations before the NASD, FINRA and the American Arbitration Association. He has represented clients in federal district courts in Massachusetts and several other judicial districts, and has successfully briefed and argued several cases before the Massachusetts Appeals Court and United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit. His practice focuses on complex corporate and personal litigation, including contract and employment disputes, restrictive employment covenants, close corporation shareholder disputes, intellectual property rights, products and premises liability, and wrongful death.  

Established by the Supreme Judicial Court in 1974, the Clients' Security Board is comprised of seven attorneys who serve without compensation overseeing the disbursement of funds to clients who have been victimized by attorney misappropriation of funds.
