KRZ is honored to announce that the Maine Trial Lawyers Association recently elected Attorney Lauri Boxer-Macomber as president of its organization, placing her at the head of an executive committee that is, for the first time in its history, majority female.
“I am honored to take on this important leadership role with the MTLA during a time when the organization has made firm commitments to safeguarding access to justice during the pandemic and ensuring that diverse voices and experiences of Maine people are recognized, included and heard in our leadership, membership, and the Maine Bar,” Boxer-Macomber said, according to a news release from the association. “Our justice system improves, and we all benefit, when our three branches of government and the organizations working with them reflect the spectrum of experiences and perspectives in our society.”
The election took place at the association’s annual business meeting in March, and Boxer-Macomber, of Portland, will serve as president of the organization for the 2021-22 term. The association also elected Susan Faunce as president-elect, Jason Jabar of Yarmouth as treasurer, and Lisa Cohen Lunn of Bangor as secretary. Chris Lewis of Cumberland, who served as president during the 2020-2021 term, remains on the executive committee as past president.
