The Honorees, from left to right: Jennifer Lemire, Michael Rainboth, Scott Harris and David Gottesman
The opening plenary of the ATLA annual summer convention in Boston was dedicated to thanking the courageous families and tireless volunteer lawyers who participated in this program. U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer presented the Lifetime Achievement Award to the 9/11 Victims Fund special master Kenneth Feinberg with a tribute to his hard work and that of the thousands of attorneys who donated a total of over 100 years to the families torn apart by the terrorist attack.
At the NHTLA Annual Dinner, David Gottesman, Jennifer Lemire, Scott Harris, and Michael Rainboth were also awarded the NHTLA Special Recognition Award. Special Recognitions are given periodically to attorneys in New Hampshire who, in the course of zealously representing their clients, pursue and help achieve substantive changes in the law which improve our civil justice system, enhance the rights of citizens' access to the courts, preserve the right of trial by jury or enhance the right of everyone to attain full, fair and timely remedies for civil wrongs.
President Thomas Craig stated, "We are proud to have four of our members, three of whom are board members, who devoted numerous hours to New Hampshire families devastated by the tragedy of September 11. These lawyers, David Gottesman, Jennifer Lemire, Scott Harris, and Michael Rainboth set aside the demands of their lives to make an extraordinary contribution to our country. Our organization owes them a great debt of gratitude for their fine work."
Access to the courts is now barred for more than 60 million American workers
