Firm Serves as Title Sponsor of Mass Lawyers Weekly Battle of the Lawyers

November 2009

Hamilton Brook Smith Reynolds once again serves as the lead sponsor of the Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly Battle of the Lawyers event and firm President, John DuPré, will continue his tradition of kicking off the evening with introductory remarks.

Styker, the case in which an unassuming Stoneham doctor, Timothy Stryker, was found responsible for the death of a doctor who had been his love interest; Suffolk County Assistant DA David Deakin who will re-create his closing in the headline-grabbing “Clark Rockefeller” case, in which the man with the secret identity was charged with kidnapping his daughter; Frank Corso delivering his closing argument in the case of Ulysses Charles, a man who collected damages from the state of Massachusetts after serving 18 years of a prison term in a place he described as “hell”; and Ellen Zucker who will reprise arguments from the Monteiro v. City of Cambridge case, in which a city employee who was a Cape Verdean immigrant claimed that her superiors discriminated against her after stripping her of some of her duties and firing her in 2003.
