Hon. John T. Broderick, Jr., Addresses
New Hampshire Trial Lawyers Association;
25 Presidents Honored at Annual Holiday Party



The New Hampshire Trial Lawyers Association (NHTLA) recently celebrated its 25th anniversary with its sixth president, the Honorable John T. Broderick, Jr., as keynote speaker. Paul A. Maggiotto, current president, and Stephen L. Tober, NHTLA's first president, made introductory remarks.

Approximately 200 people recently gathered at the Bedford Village Inn in Bedford to hear Judge Broderick and to recognize the organization's past presidents. Numerous judges, legislators, and members of the bar attended the event. All but two of the past presidents were present as well.

Judge Broderick's remarks (available in their entirety at http://www.courts.state.nh.us/speeches/nhtriallawyers.htm) included his recollections of NHTLA's beginnings, the mission of its membership, commitment to community-based justice, and comments about current and future threats to the administration of justice in New Hampshire.

Attorney Tober provided attendees with an entertaining history of how the Association began and generous praise of those involved. He made note of the organization's remarkable growth and the mission that has kept NHTLA active and vibrant through the years.

Earlier in the evening, the Association held a silent auction to benefit its Bicycle Helmet and Public Education Programs. The auction, an annual event, raises thousands of dollars to purchase helmets for children who would not otherwise have them and to sponsor other public education-related activities. Over the past few years, NHTLA has distributed almost 1000 bicycle helmets to children who needed them.

The New Hampshire Trial Lawyers Association is a 700-member organization of attorneys whose mission is to protect consumers' rights and their access to the courts, and to preserve the civil justice system.
