Governor Baker signed a proclamation establishing 
June 21, 2016 as Massachusetts Paralegal Day.
The date was chosen to coincide with the yearly MCLE Paralegal Conference. While the request was approved, issuance of the actual proclamation was delayed until just recently.   

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our outstanding paralegals for their service to our clients and the firm.  Congratulations to winners of gift certificates to Uno's Pizzeria:  Tara Cushing, David Knorring and Ursula McCraney! 
We had a great time at the Worcester Bravehearts game on July 19.  Mirick O'Connell received a 'shout out' about our 100th anniversary and Bev Fortin, who has been with the firm for over 40 years, tossed out the first pitch.  So much fun!
As a member of the Worcester Fitness Running Team, our HR Director Betsy Landry participated in the Harvard Pilgrim Finish 50 5K at Gillette Stadium on July 3rd.  The Race benefited One Mission, a pediatric cancer foundation that "does whatever it takes to get kids through cancer."  Here she is at the finish.  

On Friday, July 1, we held a $5 Jeans Day in support of Mirick O'Connell's Cancer Walk Team.  Attorneys and professionals donated $5 to wear jeans to work that day.  The money raised benefits the UMass Medicine Cancer Walk, being held on Sunday, September 25th.  Mirick O'Connell is a proud sponsor of the Walk.

When I left Hale & Dorr in Boston and came to Mirick O'Connell in Worcester in 1976, we were just 12 attorneys, occupying half of one floor in what was then "The Mechanics Bank Tower."  We're now 67 attorneys with offices in Worcester, Westborough and Boston.  Over my 40 years with the Firm, we have expanded our services and client base, while retaining the commitment to excellent, personalized service to our clients.
