Davis Malm proudly received the Massachusetts Bar Foundation 2013 President’s Award on September 26 at the Eastern Massachusetts grantee reception held at the Massachusetts Bar Association in Boston. This distinct honor is given annually by the Board of Trustees to individuals and organizations who have demonstrated exemplary service to the Massachusetts Bar Foundation and the legal community by increasing access of legal services for low-income citizens of the Commonwealth. Davis Malm has been a generous and longstanding Foundation supporter and was the first firm to sign on to the program launched in 2010 encouraging law firms to become involved with the Foundation and its mission.

“The firm is honored to be recognized by the Board of Trustees,” said Tom Fitzpatrick, Davis Malm’s managing partner. “We recognize that lawyers have a special responsibility to see that equal access to the legal system is available to all people, and we are proud that the firm can be an influential part of the community through support of the Foundation.”

In addition to the firm’s commitment, shareholder Laurence Johnson served two terms as president of the Foundation (2008-2009), and several of the firm’s attorneys have joined the Massachusetts Bar Foundation Society of Fellows.
